What a wealth of info on this site. It's a fantastic thing to have all this invaluable information and opinion at our fingertips. I live south of Hobart and have been riding about 6 years. Have covered about 100,000 kms on my various bikes. Did the Ulysses AGM last march and included a trip up to Brissie and back. Did about 8000km on that one on my '01 VFR800fi using as many good and recommended roads as possible. Have recently bought an 08 BMW R1200GS (mid August) and already clocked 4000km and looking forward to even more touring. Nice to meet you all.
