I’m back home in Beaumaris!
After leaving Longreach I headed south through the outback roads to Bourke and then Hay and through to Echuca and finally Beaumaris.
It took me just 3 days. I hadn’t intended to go that fast but it started getting colder and I thought it was time to get home. There is no place like home!
Here is a photo of Beaumaris Beach
So my fifth big ride is over. It’s been great and I’ve seen some wonderful places. I recommend Northern Australia and swimming with the Whale Sharks in WA is a must do…. Add them to your bucket list
It’s now time for Azulo to go into retirement. He’s been amazing and a credit to Kawasaki. In the 85,000 kilometres I’ve travelled on my adventures, Azulo has hardly ever caused me problems. The difficulties I had on this trip were due primarily to poor servicing and it didn’t help filling up with diesel rather than petrol!
I intend donating Azulo to a Motorbike museum, if I can find one interested…I can’t possibly sell him…he’s almost part of the family…I suggested to Merry mounting him on the front gate or embedding him in the front wall but received a frosty look!
This is my last post on this blog. Thank you for coming along with me on my adventures and a big thanks for those who have made comments. As I’ve said before the comments have made it worthwhile doing the blog which at times has been a bit of a pain…..but I knew some people were looking forward to the next post which was an incentive to keep going…… Now I have a diary record of the trip…… maybe I’ll get my book finished…I started a book but got bored with it!
To those of you whom I’ve met on my travels and watch the blog…please keep in touch by emailing me…firstname.lastname@example.org.
