Comments: Good dealers close by, All the realy nice roads are out of sydney but not far, if you need a hand when your bike won't go, I'm only too willing to come by with a handfull of tools and break something else on it. Drop a line all the same as I can point you in the right direction for real help, and if it's an old Airhead It's likely I've allready broken that part once or twice and can show you what I did for instruction.

Comments: Australia is motorcycle heaven (if you like long trips, and don't mind occasionally getting off the blacktop), especially on a BMW. The Paris Dakar has the range, rideability and reliability to be the perfect Aussie touring mount. I'm a Ulysses Club member (40+ bikers and bikettes), and belong to BMWMOA as well (transplanted Yank!). When in Oz, I can provide touring advice, contacts and WINETASTING TOURS! (The Hunter Valley is reknowned for great wines). I can also provide tours of large open cut coal mines, if you're interested (I'm a Mining Engineer). See you in Oz!
