Paddy’s flat to Tenterfield Adventure

This epic ride from Another Guy On A Bike takes us on a journey that will test your adventure ride skills. It has a few creek crossings and plenty of bush bashing.

As the dry conditions may favour us with dryer creek beds and less muddy tracks, however it may result in most loose and sandy conditions. Bike – Suzuki DRZ-400 This popular dual sport motorcycle is more like a…

Kawasaki KLR 650 Gen 2 – My weapon of choice

The big thumper brings me a lot of joy and hate. The bike is slow, but pulls like a tractor. It’s heavy, but light when riding swiftly.

Fun quick & dirty adventure ride in Elimbah

This is one of my favourite places to ride. Less than an hour north of Brisbane, Australia is a playground for the adventurer. Weekend traffic gets busy at 10am. So plan to go early!
