Adventure Ride around OZ

Discussion in 'Welcome Lounge' started by MarineMan, Jul 18, 2016.

  1. I am planning a trip around Oz for next year dates to be decided but at least 3-4 months.
    I have an Africa Twin. My previous bike was a Huyabusa so a bit of a change. Looking for recommendations tracks, places to see etc. anyone else doing a similar trip .

  2. Welcome to the nuthouse mate.

    try posting up in the ride planning section as well - not everybody watches the welcome forum so you might get better response on there.
  3. Thanks I am new to this site
  4. Hi and welcome MarineMan, as GeorgeOGeorgeO suggested, post up in THIS section about your planned trip, it sounds great! I, for one, would be keen to catch up once you hit Melbourne and surrounds. There'll be no shortage of people offering tips, routes and advice for your journey on this forum(y) Perhaps post up some pics of your bike too:playful:
  5. Welcome, there are a couple of recent notable trips, that of ValvolineValvoline and a more on/off road experience from sjmhosjmho...

  14. Thanks everyone for your replies: I will post some photos of the bike soon and get to reply to all of you. It should be a great ride, with plenty of time to explore and enjoy
  15. gday MarineManMarineMan and welcome to NR - I bet you're enjoying sitting upright on the bike for a change but that acceleration on the 'busa is sure hard to give up!

  18. Oh cool 2uono2uono ,
    Best to do is to introduce yourself in your own thread in the Welcome lounge. More rides will see this and say g'day :)

    And ask you about your spoiling present on 2 wheels... There's a few guys here that have these beasts of a machine :p (chilliman64chilliman64 & itchinitchin.... Etc etc)

    Check out the Events thread for group rides near the GC - I try hold some in the region too.
    Welcome to the nuthouse forum tho :)!
