On the start of our recent crossing of the Nullarbor we met up with the "lone rider" at Nundroo SA.  During a chat and a couple of beers with him he brought out a book he said he'd been following for two months or so.

Big John's Newcastle Bikers 4 Kids Toy Run 2009 was on today in support of the Salvation Army.  Armed with a clean enough bike and my wife keen to participate we headed to the gathering point at the Sandgate fruit markets.  I knew where the members of the local HOG chapter would be so we found them among the throng of bikes, parked

We had a couple of quiet

After a nice stop at Ned Kelly country (Glenrowan) it was time to head straight for Melbourne airport. Got a bit chilly on the way, and breezy but weather ok.

We arrived at the Secure Parking for our Harley's and were shuttled to the airport.  We dropped into the Qantas Club Lounge and because the flight was sadly delayed we had the

We left Albury reasonably early after breakfast around the corner from the motel.  We took a couple of snaps on the banks of the Murray River just before crossing the border to Victoria.  The road was essentially freeway but we couldn't resist stopping at Glenrowan, famous Ned Kelly Haunt.  Took some pics of the historic village

With nearly 5,500 k's on the new Road King and 6000+ k's to add to it on the Perth ride taking it well past the normal service schedule of 8,000k's it was time to bite the bullet and take it to the Harley Guru to get it ready for the trip. 

On the agenda was putting in the best oil, transmission oil, iridium plugs, best air cleaner

I recently received a message the SeaSA's ferry to Lucky Bay that was going to shave off a few hundred k's of our trip between Adelaide and Port Lincoln won't be running because some Abu Dabian decided not to lend them their boat. 

Because of that we'll now need to ride right around Spencer Gulf through Port Augusta and Port Pirie adding
