I'm sure that everyone's thought about riding right around Australia and I'm certain some of you have done it, but it's interesting how little information there actually is about it on the net. For literally years I have said to my wife that the one thing that I'd like to do before I get too old to be able to do it is to ride around Australia. Now there is a major caveat and it is that I want to do so on sealed roads only. I'm not the slightest bit interested in "mine's bigger than yours" touring, wrestling awkward "adventure" bikes (joke) through mud and dust, or having a litany of bumps, scratches and injuries to boast about when I eventually get home. Today over lunch I brought up the subject again and, suddenly it popped into sharp relief. Here I am, nearly 61 years old and the clock is ticking. Time to stop THINKING about it and start DOING SOMETHING about it. So, next July, tentatively, I plan to do "The Big One", the lap of Oz in an anti-clockwaise direction, which everyone seems to agree is the ideal set up. I'd like to stick to the coast as much as possible; not interested in exploring the inland at this stage. What I'm after is suggestions, ideas and, most importantly, first-hand "skinny" from people who have either done it or part of it. Thanks in anticipation.
