Anzac Day in Sleepy Guilderton

Anzac Day ride from Perth to Guilderdton – 25.04.17 Salute to the fallen brave and those gallant solders who returned with shocking memories they will carry for the rest of their lives.

Broome - a lovely Whyalla welcome

Three days spent at the Men’s Outreach Center where it just so happened to be NAIDOC week. Helping with BBQ’s, yarning with staff and some of the less fortunate males in and around the Broome community coming in for feeds and ‘men’s health checks’

Bunbury to Perth

BUNBURY/PERTH – ‘Aaarghhhh! Stand still’ (April Fools Day) It’s amazing the connections you make when travelling solo with very little fear and a positive attitude. Having said that, ‘very little fear’ does not ignore the fact the need for diligence and tuning in to the possibilities of hazards and dangers that lurk on the outer, with my shark/predator radar on auto pilot at all times.

CARNARVON – It’s not always smooth sailing even for adventurers.

Three days of no shower, hair and body covered in salt, this little cookie was very much hanging out to get back to Carnarvon. First priority – coffee at the Outback roadhouse...

DENHAM - Shark Bay

20km out of Denham, and coming towards me was an ambulance with sirens flashing. My thoughts, “poor bugger” for who ever was in the back. The ambo gets closer and I notice the ambo driver starting to wave madly , my thoughts.....

Exmouth to Karratha (03.06.17 -18.07.17)

Next stop, Nanutarra Roadhouse, 280km with no fuel stop. So I have to fill my fuel bladders for the first time before leaving, and stop half way for fuel and food break.

Margaret River beaches, wine and more promoting

MARGARET RIVER 30.03.17 (Thursday) Looking forward to a nice comfy bed at Lisa’s and Colin’s house (my brother). Great family catch up, watched some amazing surfers ride the rather large swell at South Beach and Prevelly, something I would not attempt as thanks to the highly-acclaimed movie of its time ‘JAWS’...

Northhampton balls up!

“Jules, make sure you pop in on the way, and visit – forget it name – ‘Pirate’ I think!, and his lovely missus – forget it name, they have just taken over the Northhampton Pub”. “Sure” I say, “just let me write it down coz I will forget”....

Pemberton Here I Come

PEMBERTON HERE I COME Starting to relax into the first leg, we pull up at Walpole for lunch. Several riders left the group at the Mt Barker turn off, and some were already in Walpole ready to meet us before they headed off to an overnight camp somewhere just out of Bridgeton. Finally I can eat something...

The longest Haul - testing times

22.07.17 - 16.10.17 Well where do I start? As I sit and type, nearly three months since breaking down at Timber Creek, now on a plane back from Adelaide to Darwin, I ponder at all the going ons and events leading up to the middle of ‘friggin’ October’. Shaking my head at how the hell I ended up on a plane in the middle of my tour, flying over Uluru instead of riding through Sydney on my lil trusty ol’ Ella

The Shake Down - Test Run

400km round trip out to Bremmer Bay, W.A. For an ol’ girl of 75 years, a chassis and motor to withstand the harshest of environments in her time, with quirks and squirts and 3 purpose in built oil leaks; planning ahead and preparing for routine mechanical checks, top ups and breakdowns is gonna be a given as part of this exhilarating journey...

Whim Creek Pub – Eighty Mile Beach, and all in between

This most successful night which raised an amazing $1,400. Could not have been achieved without the support from Pilbarra Motorcycle Sisters, KBA and the very lovely Nannette (Nann), who I met at the Soroptimist 34th birthday celebration. Nann, very kindly donated all of her brother Ken’s motorbike clothing and equipment for the auction, which in itself raised about $900. Several raffles later and a mean game of ‘Killer’ @ $10 a pop, gave us a grand total of $1,400. Fantasic team effort.
