Mike's Road Trips 

                      "It's not about the destination...it's about the journey."

Welcome to my website.  This site is dedicated to my motorcycle trips throughout Australia.  I will post details about my next trip and then keep you all up to date with events on that trip while I'm on the road.  You can also look up details of previous trips including photo galleries and maps.  My Blog also lets you make comments and chat with me while on the road or just planning my next tour.  Enjoy!

The early years - the Shadow

Then came the Voyager

And then the Camper Trailer


My last escape was a trip to redeem myself for piking out on one of my very early trips.  In 2008 I set out on the Shadow to get to the Gulf.  I got turned back by Cyclones and washed out roads then and turned east at Mt.Isa.  But not this time.  I made it all the way to Karumba on the Gulf of Carpentaria and spent my birthday with a cold beer and feed of fresh Barramundi  at the Sunset Tavern.  Very aptly named as you will see in some of the photos.

My next road trip is to Broken Hill in NSW.  I will be heading off with five mates for a 10 day circuit of NSW and some northern parts of Victoria.  The trip will take in some fantastic bike roads like The Tablelands Way, the Sofala Road, Bylong Valley Way, the Warrumbungles Way.  Joining me on this trip will be some guys from the South Coast Branch of the Ulysses Club.  Stumpy, John , Chris, Dave and Eoin will be taking on the 11 day, 3000 kilometre journey through outback NSW. 

A nice stretch of the Bylong Valley Way from Kandos to Denman.
