Tour round the coast of Australia
« on: August 10, 2015, 02:56:16 pm »
i seem to have forgotten to post up anything here about my current trip. I am more than 6500 kms into a trip of around 15,000kms in 6 weeks or so. Bike is running great, and the weather is getting up to 20c minimums at night to 35c plus during the day.

I am posting brief reports here http://ozstoc.com/index.php?topic=9645.0
And pictures and brief comments on Facebook until I get back under John Saaz

Bike is over 92,000kms still 8,000kms to get home, then. A major service and a few rides after that before the warranty runs out mid November

G'day Saaz,

A great time of the year to travel to and through Western Australia and the Top End. Watch out for the wildlife and enjoy the ride.

Great to see you're maximising the kilometres in the warranty  :062:.
Wherever you go, there you are.

Well done John, Having done 2 laps myself, 1 on a ST and 1 on a GT, I recommend to others to put that ride in your bucket list, Backed it up with 3 laps of Tassie on the TTSE
Sprint ST 2007-2010
Sprint GT 2010-2014
TTSE-2014

In Northern Australia it is 20 to 30c this time of year, around the coastal areas, gets hotter in summer. Inland areas up north can get to 0c.
