hope that your trip is relaxing and enjoyable. Friend of mine visited Perth not to long ago. After looking at the pictures, I wish I could head on down to visit. Maybe at some point in my life! Ride safe!

Graeme HAVE A NICE RIDE!!!!
The great adventure we all dream of experiencing is ahead of you. I bet most other members, including myself, are getting jealous
We 'll be thinking about you all the time, so keep us posted when you can.
I'm amazed you can make 420 kms on a tank of gas, I never made more than 300 and it was during break in.

Do you think that you can get me a picture of one of those ever elusive jackalopes? I hear that through Applied Genetics they are running rampant in your continant-country right now!
I can't wait to see those pictures !!!
Hope you have a blast!
Enjoy your trip and watch out for roos. I wish I could join you,maybe someday on my trip around Oz someday I'll stop by and say hey. This summer I'm going to go ride the Rockies. I live on the east coast and I was thinking a ZR-7s might not be the right bike for it but you have conviced me to try it,besides 50mpg on regular is looking pretty good right now, what the hell and it will be great for the twisty bit out there. To bad kanas is so damn big.
I think I have missed you, but have a great time, and ride safe...
See you in Perth in 10 days or so
Looking forward to it!!
Godspeed, gentle Sir.
[Aside: He looks as happy as a clam on prozac perched atop that beautiful, blue, (naked-as-the-day-it-was-born) bike... don't he?]
I think we should all chip in to buy you a couple of spare ZR-7s so that we'll have something to ride when we come to visit. On the other hand... I wonder how many stamps it would take to post a ZR-7 clear 'round the world.
You've still got a place to stay if your walkabout (ride-about?) ever leads you to the capitol of the free* world.
Unfortunately, there's no cricket up here... and you'd have to practice using our backwards-turning toilets... but we have Fosters "oilcans" and about 600-fajillion more: a. roads, b. trees, c. people, d. CRIMINALS,
...but we are short 100% of BB's GG's!
I'm glad you elected to have your beautiful, blue babe's picture taken with you astride. Every time I see the baby-pictures of some proud owner I've been suprised that the rider is conspicuously absent from said photos.
How about we have the ROTR-IV in Brisbane?! ;o)
Oh... and don't let any of those koala's get you! We've all heard what they're like once they've tasted human blood! *shivers*
Bring back lotsa pitchers! As someone astutely commented earlier, we are most definitely with you in spirit.
*for the moment.
P.S.: anyone besides me notice that he's touring the perimeter of the only continent which is completely swathed in topless beaches? :-D

Geez, you look nearly as old as I do ...
IF you get delayed til mid-Nov, and IF you pass through Melbourne on the way back, you are more than welcome to drop in for a barbie, a drop of red, and a nice hot shower.
2000 ZR-7 (red, faster)
2002 Royal Enfield Bullet 500 (black, definitely slower) ... yep still got 'em both Never give up. If you give up, you'll lose. If you don't give up, you might win.
I have yet to do the Great Ocean Road, so you never know, I may take you up on your offer of a glass of grape juice and a bbq.
