Danger Will Robinson

Everything in
will kill you. Don't go near it.
After riding around Australia recently the biggest danger are drivers on freeways who swap lanes without looking. The crocodiles, snakes, jellyfish, sharks and spiders aren't really that bad as long as you're not in their environment. These environments include rivers, deserts, rainforests and eucalypt forests.:wink2::wink2:

Great pic's,
I would rather take chance with wild life van a person in a car, or matter of fact any person.
If you can please post more.

Great photos of Uluru, The Olgas, and the Devil's Marbles. I still have a photo on the wall of the marbles from when I was down under in 1994. I'd love to come back and ride there, particularly on the ocean roads. Thanks for sharing.

The tyres are Mitas E07s. They have now done 12000kms. The last set did the entire lap last year, they were replaced together at the end of the ride. The front did 18000ks aand the rear 16000. The bike averaged 5.1L/100kms on the ride into pretty strong headwinds and crosswinds.

Nice pics. I hope to be able to visit Australia soon to visit my family in Melbourne and Adelaide, hopefully this year, once the pandemic is gone forever.

A flat tire on Mars? :)

Really nice share Skip. Beautiful.

Gee, flat tires are common during your journey?
I have a Outex conversion so I was OK, I think there where about 4 front tubes that went and 1 or 2 back tires destroyed with big cuts and I think there were two chains had to be replaced plus I think 2 bikes got new rubber at Broken Hill one being the big Duke but it didn't make it home, and the repair bill was $26K so it was written off.
