Oh my. How did I agree to that? Seems to have taken on a life of it's own now. My husbands bike, his Buell, is due for a service. The service centre is 3 hours away in Horsham! I'm sure there is somewhere closer, but hubby tells me that this is the one to go to! They actually offer us overnight accomodation for free. Next thing I know, I have decided that if we are going away for one night, we may as well make a long weekend of it. The town where the bike is being serviced does not have much to offer so we won't stick around for long. On the way back, we will stay in Halls Gap. Breath taking in it's beauty and there should be excellent riding there too! I booked us into a little romantic cottage with open grasslands and surrounding mountains. Aghhhh, sounds 'perfect'. We will stay in the cottage for 2 nights. The trip from the service centre to Halls Gap is about 1 hour or so. I am so excited about this trip. I hope that with my limited experience I have not bitten off more than I can chew. I have my windscreen on it's way and hubby bought me a lovely piece of sheepskin to cover my seat. He also informs me that he has just bought both of us an Airhawk seat! We are leaving on Friday 3rd December. Luckily Ivan's bike has lots of luggage which needs to be fitted, but I'm sure it will do. Ivan has attached a tank bag to the back of my seat and it fits perfectly so now I feel like a real road tripper! There will be a ton of photos and hopefully i won't bore you guys silly with my travel stories. I know my little bike is up for it, but am I? Please send some 'good weather' vibes my way too. I'm not set up for wet weather riding!
