Australian Bush Camping

Hi, have so many nice places around here to explore and camp on the bike.
Always warm and green all year round and perfect country for the AT, maybe it should be called the AUSSIE TWIN.

Love the bush camping and video, not sure about swimming in the rivers up there (crocs)? Hey can you let me know if you can take your plastic side covers off with the sw motec crash bars attached?

Cheers folks..
No crocks in that river so all good, well I was swimming in there and nothing happen :-)

More trips planned, but yes it will spend most of its life off road and dirty as that is what I bought it for.

Yes, with the SW Motech crash bars on you can take the plastic covers off.
They are very good quality and so is the massive 5mm B&B bash plate.

Cheers my friend.
Yes the more I ride this thing the more beautiful tracks with swimming and camping I find.
Today's little ride, just had to get out of the house as the rain was driving me nuts.
You may know it.

Nice one! Haven't had a VB for a long long time. Looks like great country to explore on a bike. I've only been on the road/car through the middle (Uluru) and back across to the east coast.

Arrr! Davies Creek Rd, know it well.
Mareeba was my home town, so Davies Ck to Lake Tinaroo via the back roads was one of my regular practice/play grounds.
Thanks for the memories Rotorpix
