Well, its time I had a well deserved rest, and having loaded the Cruiser with 2 bikes, camping equipment, we are heading towards Hungerford/Thargomindah at 2am tonight.
My new motorbike
Temperatures will be 40c+. However we are well prepared with icy cold beer, bird books, binoculars, water, breakdown equipment, extra spare wheels, food….you name it! We are quite independent and capable.
Above is my new bike… its set up for mustering /droving, as well as birding. Bikes are great for sneaking up on game.
The canvas covers on the seat and tank protect the bike from the scratches from dogs and general wear and tear.
Today I found a cap worn by Jim when he was here in 2011. For the sake of nostalgia I will bring it to our favourite birding spots. I hope my UK and Austrian friends will enjoy that!
This is a semi arid trip in drought conditions and requires real focus!
Well- See you all soon in Lamington land!
