Unfortunately lots of other people have the same idea at Burleigh Heads knob, Qld and therefore can't take nicer photo without too many figures in the way... But still managed to snap a few shots. View attachment 57719
However after an amazing sun-up, met up with my long-term-friend, turned riding mentor (corruptor), ex-racer, turned immature, non-blood "grandpa" for a proper catch up and an even longer ride in the northern NSW rivers.
No photo opportunities there due to too much riding going on.
Dancing like a pair of figure skaters, dodging cyclists on a race event, catching glimpses of beautiful vistas in between.

I had a very lovely surprise once I got home, for he had saved me the Australian Motorcycle News (Adventure Issue) magazine Vol 65, No21 - which I was not able to find in Melbourne(?).... and guess who made a guest appearance in the magazine!?
None other than sjmho !!!
Looks like it's an early night tonight with some good solid reading material
