Phillby I live in Victoria in Australia and ride motorbikes (both dirt and road) I own a BMW GS1200 and a Yamaha WR450. I was wondering if you have any plans on coming to Australia and if you'd be interested in doing some motorbike riding as I might be able to show you around. I'm sure you're aware that there is so many different types of country (desert, mountain, seaside, etc) here in Australia. PS: it seams that a lot of people from the UK and Europe are worried about snakes and spiders in Aust, Don't be.

Aaron&Megan Phillby, sorry if I'm intruding on your conversation but motor biking Oz sounds like a blast. I have a 2005 Yamaha V-Star Classic 1100 here at home in the states and used to have a 1985 Kawasaki Vulcan 700 and a 2003 Yamaha YZ450F. So I have experience on both dirt and highway. My girlfriend and I will be heading to Australia for about six months in late November or early December. Let me know if you’d like to meet up and/or join us for part of our journey. It’d be a blast to do some riding while we’re there. Here’s a link to our trip. http://globetrooper.com/campervanning-and-backpacking-australia-and-new-zealand-2012

noodles how does one cycle to australia? Motor bikes I can maybe do, but push bikes...dunno hadnt thought about it. Used to ride mountain bikes a lot but haven't in years. I think I am more of a walker.

strachan67 Well, not been much of a planner, aside from a few essentials like visas, money and minimal gear, you just get on your bike and pedal!!

noodles well aside from having saved the money and a departure date not really. I am having trouble deciding where to stop on the way...i want to see Bangkok but a bit dubious about going there alone. I have friends in christchurch so I will prolly go there first when i get to nz. Stuff i want to do is ..pretty much everything i hear about. Want to go on a horseback tour of the lotr rings places and stay in a treehouse for a night. Also going to do one of the tramping/kayak trails and if i can afford it do a parachutejump
