My mate and I have just hatched the plan to take on melbourne to F N Q. Troy was keen for perth but me , not so keen. I suggested port douglas and that was it. Having not seen alot of the NSW and QLD coast line I thought what better way to do it than on the old VFR 750. Probably like many of you,charley and ewan have given us some inspiration. Troys from townsville so it was not too difficult to persuede him. He will be on a 97 gsx-r 600. Both older bikes but hopefully will do it easy. If anyone has any tips or suggestions, they are most welcome. As we are both family guys timing is important.We are not goin until sept or oct 09. plenty of time to plan or win the lotto to get a new steed for the journey.
