Has been great meeting up with Rob and Di in Perth!
On the weekend, we met up with some other BMW club members before they rode north to Karijini area…
Did a bit of sightseeing around Perth.
And here is Davey…. With his mascot traveler
We stopped to see Rob’s Mum, and have a cup of tea. They have an amazing collection of history.
It was a lifetime of collecting ….all on display. Was a real treat to get to see where his parents passions were.
Then we stopped in the town and watched the Targa racers at the pit stop
and a tour back through Perth
Then a quick wash of my bike….. to get ready for Service at BMW
Then down to Fremantle to check that out, and stop at Little Creatures brewery.
and a Tall ship that was in port
And the local artwork…
This little girl was interested as we encouraged her to get in the photo
and some Colombian Dancers! They were glad I had visited their country
Then a look at the beach. Indianna Restaurant at Cottelsoe Perth
And another great day in Australia, with new friends!
Monday while my bike was being serviced. Needed a new clutch cable, and new front brake rotors as the floating rivets are really loose. then a full checkover.
I met John at the mine town of Tom Price. He took a photo of my bike,and then googled Radioman, and emailed me to offer accommodation and a chance to go for a ride. Had too many offers in Perth to be able to stay with everyone, but a chance to go ride off road on a smaller bike…. Oh Yea
John showed up with a Honda Cr 500 two stroke and WR 450.
We road up to Jarrahdale and rode around the water reservoirs.
Just a great time on dirt roads, single track, bush wacking !
Thanks John!! Was great. Back in time to pick up my bike at the dealer!
