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. I’ve gone a many adventures on this bike and it continues to keep thumping. I don’t treat it like it’s precious, I feel that it likes to be treated rough. It’s cheap, so why be scared to drop it, oh but yes, it’s heavy! I’ve had to pick up this bike many times that it feels like a gym workout. There’s so much…

Adventure bike crossing creek

JoshJB posted this amazing ride north of Brisbane, Queensland. It highlights Louisavale road, a farming trail that connects Monsildale to Linville.

Fun quick & dirty adventure ride in Elimbah

Elimbah state forest

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! Conditions Elimbah state forest is generally flat. There’s no hill climbs or decent to be concerned about. The grounds vary between sandy terrain, clay and compact soil. To have the most fun I would use more off-road oriented tires. Difficulty: Easy to Moderate Whilst I mark this as easy – don’t feel that experienced riders won’t…
