    I know there's a few motorcyclists on here, I'm on a Sports Tourer these days, but this is where my heart lies..

    This guys videos are a bit unpolished here and there but I take my hat off to him, jealous of anyone with the time and money and kahunas to get off the beaten track and out into the big wide world



    Love to see clips from other parts of the world, so post away!

    1800km thru the desert along the Canning Stock Route (2 wheel tracks basically) with a couple of ex-GP racers, including a world champion.

    Worth looking up how Len Beadell made the Gunbarrel Highway, and other roads through central Aus. Primitive surveying and bush ingenuity at it's best.

    I've always wanted to do the Simpson on a bike but after seeing this, i think I'll let discretion be the better part of valour

    I got all the jarring and spills from jumping and riding in the dirt out of my system on bicycles as a kid...:)

    I am strictly a street rider these days, have only owned sports tourers for the past 25 years.

    Of all the bikes I have owned, I miss the Wing the most :(
    Who knew you aren't supposed to put kids in the saddle bags. :D

    Tried this too, the wife wouldn't let me get leathers and a helmet for her :lol::lol::lol:
