March / June 2012 trip
Posted 10 June 2011 - 07:48 PM
I've never been to Australia, my wife was in in Sidney and Melbourne for 2 weeks 20 years ago on a business trip. We thinking about exploring on motorcycles, not a car, a combination of the "typical" tourist place and things off the beating path (preferred).
Please PM me if you can give us some recommendations on places to go and were to find bikes. She rides a Vstar 1300 and I'm on a '07 FJR.

I have only just seen your post. June may not be the best time to tour downunder, it is winter then. I am on the other side of the country from Melbourne and Sydney. That is about 2,500 miles. So I will not be much help in regards to recommendations. Try our Australian FJR Forum at
http://www.forum.fjr13.org/. I am sure some of our Eastern States members will have ideas for you.

Sorry, Roy. You're too late. June 2012 was five months ago. I think you should reschedule your trip for June, 2013. Maybe the airlines will give you part credit or something.
Sounds like it'll be a hell of a trip though. Happy anniversary!
um, edit: Didn't see your original post date was last year. Guess it got resurrected and I missed it. I'm blaming the forum upgrade--the dates didn't show when I posted. Yeah, that's it.
