Now THAT... is AWESOME!
Love it when the kids are involved and get a taste for it...does 'em a lot of good, too.

Looks like that tyre-repair was a bit of a hassle there....turned out ok in the end?

Yep, she's a good kid, doing really well at school and quickly became a useful team member, pitching in and helping out. Were going for a weekender in a couple of weeks and might take a postie for her to learn to ride!

Tyre was porked, big time. We chucked the spare on and got a new one in Nyngan, non matching but still a mud terrain. Amazingly we didn't get slugged tourist tax so wasn't too painful in the end.

All's well that ends well.

A postie sounds like a great idea...and lotsa fun.

I ended up finishing a proper ride report of our NSW trip and a ride report of our Tassie escapade. It doesn't compare to some of the great NZ and Euro threads here although I hope you all find something to like.


NSW













10 days in Tassie, mostly on the West Coast and into the middle a bit. Plenty to come back for!












Both reports here, one after the other. There are a few before that as well.

Mate, it doesn't have to compare at all....it's a different part of the world and you came away with some pretty sweet shots.
Took me a while to go through this....it's quite a yarn!

Still not finished with the Tassie posts....but aren't you lucky you got there (and out) before it all turned to charcoal.
Yeah, you left yourself a whole bag of good stuff for the next Tassie run.
Again, some good pics with early morning/ late afternoon lighting, beautiful.

Thanks for the heads-up.
(I had already scanned some of the NSW trip on ADV before)
