Current Ride – 2003 R1150G, 1999 XTZ650 and a 2012 KLR650.
Brief riding history – As a kid I rode mostly mates bikes, family farm bikes etc. until late teens. Mainly road and dual sports but mostly 1 litre class road bikes in my youth and ADV bikes since about 2011.
Best ride ever – 4 days across 2 remote cattle stations in the NT with a group of good mates, riding, swimming and camping
with crocs and cattle in rough terrain. Second would be 4 days through Kakadu with two mates. Multi day ride/camp trips are my thing.
Favorite WA ride area – Only been in the west since 2019 and able to explore since early 2020 so really getting into the wheat belt and goldfields area out of Southern Cross and Bullfinch. The history out there is epic, ghost towns, old mines and stations.
Best bike ever built – Hard to go past the BMW R1150 GSA I reckon.
The bike you learnt to ride on – A little red Honda 50 at around 7yrs but learnt about clutch control very quickly on a Kawasaki KX 60 not long after.
