    We may be traveling back to Australia next year. If we do, we will definitely be renting a bike and doing some riding on the wrong side of the road!

          I notice this topic was originated in 2014. Still, it's never too late to tell the world what a wonderful country Australia is and how riding the Wing can be an exhilarating and at times a bit challenging here.
          In truth, I think we all know as individuals, we each live in the best part of our world (or make it seem so). Having the freedom to ride our Wings as and when we choose is a huge blessing in itself.
          In Oz we cross State borders with nary a thought of what laws and rules we have to modify our ways to. Although, there seems to be a growing trend by legislators here to make make life a little difficult at times for motorcyclists by altering statute laws that specifically target motorcyclists. Some law enforcement officers take it upon themselves to 'interpret' some of these rules as part of a revenue raising 'awareness' program.
          But, by and large, we live in a modern, progressive society that allows us freedoms of riding that many others can only dream about.
          If anyone reading this gets the urge to travel 'Down Under' and would like to meet like minded Wing riders, such as myself, just pm me and if I cannot assist you with accommodation and touristy things to do, there are others I can point you to.
          Welcome to OZ people.
          PS: Living in the Southern Hemisphere gets us all a bit disorientated with our road placement. That's why we drive on the 'correct' side of our roads, and not the 'right' side! Sure hope that clears up any misunderstandings! :-)

                  I see the Wing movement in America is massive but we in Oz are just as enthusiastic. Tassie is one of our states which was built for motorcycles, barely a straight section of road to be found. Then you get up into the high country of Victoria and the Alpine regions of New South Wales; curves a plenty, but pick your season of the year to really get value from the twisties.

                    Heading to Tassie from 7 March 2020 with some like minded bike riders. Never know, you may see us riding through anticlockwise. Strahan to Hobart to Sheffield and home; 7 days of pure bliss !
