A MOTORCYCLE trip from east to west & back again in Australia. 19Th September
This trip is something we have wanted to do for many years and being my hubby’s 60th birthday we decided this was the year …!!!
Our bags were packed and it was a feat as we had a top box & two side paniers to hold clothes/food & water/tools for a months worth of travel… we left home at 5am so as to beat the morning traffic and not get stuck on the freeway.
We started with a morning temperature of 7 degrees but by the time we got to Kyneton it had dropped to 1 degree…. talk about freezing !!!! We stopped for a cuppa and a couple of egg sangas. anyone knowing us will know we rarely eat out and having a sandwich in our food bag takes us a very long way.
Back on the bike and we keep going.We ride through small Victorian towns called Lockwood…Bridgewater on Lodden…Wedderburn…Teddywaddy….Wycheproof….Berriwillock…Sea lake & then stop at Nullawil where we see our first Silo Art.. It was a good opportunity to stretch our legs once more & take in the awesome art.
We get to our first nights stop in Mildura, having covered 630kms overall. not a bad days riding with spectacular weather.
