Cool to hear Denburger.
Yes so many places around and out west that's for sure.
Hey that sounds like a good loop, care to show me what road you took?

superfunkomatic Yes Australia is perfect for a bike like this.
Up north here you can ride all year round.
I plan to travel all over AUS on as many dirt roads as I can.

Here is a little getaway over the weekend, but gone from VB's to Great Northerns. :-)

Hi Rotorpix, From your latest vid looks like you enjoy riding off the beaten track.
So if you ride up Davies Ck Road just keep going, there was 2 ways up to Tinaroo, an "A Track" and a "B Track" either one will take you to Tinaroo.
Just follow the main path, I used to ride my TT600 up there no problems (except in the wet as it could get a bit slippery)
Check it out on GOOGLE MAPS, you will see the tracks. Enjoy
Check out the places I ride down here Brisbane way, on my Thread " Pics Where you Ride"
And If your ever down this way, look us up and we'll take you on some fun rides.

The Burger.

Nice.

Now that the rain has finally stopped down here in NSW I'm looking forward to getting out again over the next few days. Hopefully it's dry enough to kick up some dust before knocking back a few Tooheys. Hoping to ride out to the Flinders Ranges later this year before it gets hot again. Would also like to make a run up to FNQ via Cobar, Bourke, Cunamulla and Barcaldine sometime. Love my AT.

Denburger, I followed Davis Creek road to the end and got to a little bridge.
It looked like the road ended there?
Will check it out again to make sure as that would be a great ride to the lake then down the Gilles.
I will search out your thread.

Derek Dust, think you have sent the rain up here, been at it for days now.
Its great how the bike can cruise the hways easy but can take you into the real bush riding still.
Smaller bikes struggle on the open road loaded up kind of thing.
Perfect machine for AUS.

4500km now and the oil level has not moved.

Daffy67, What a job...Cape York full of all kinds of things, they are actually looking for the Tasmania Tiger up there now after some sightings?
Yes I am there too, are you Daffy there too?

Hi I am heading up that way mid june plan to go all the way to the cape. I enjoyed your vids and glad to hear the tractionators work well as I plan to fit a set in Cairns for the interesting bit. 4 bikes bmw 650 ,800 tiger my A T and a 1200 gs so a good range of bikes will be interesting to see which handles it the best. Weather wise It maybe a bit early but a lot less traffic . will post some vids of the trip when I get back , hanging out to get going counting down the days . Cheers

Roads to explore


Chillagoe on my previous bike. Doing the same ride in June with a few mates as a prelude to our around Australia trip in August. The Vstrom is my old bike.

Between Mt Surprise and Chillagoe.
