Motorcycle Meanders
Stories of Adventures and Tips for Travel


Introduction

 

This site has been set up to share my motorcycling experiences with friends, fellow travellers and other interested surfers; and, hopefully, to provide some vicarious pleasures, as well as useful tips, information  and insights.

 

It describes my motorcycle tours within Australia and abroad. It reports on experiences I've had 'on the road', such as hotels, camping, communications etc. I include my feeling about bikes Iíve owned and ridden at home and on overseas tours. Iíve got a few stories to tell by the fireside; and have a page on the odd things one comes across while riding. 

I've also got a page on non-motorcycle meanders to share other adventures.

I plan to do a bit of blogging. And thereís an invitation for you to contribute through the guest book.

 

I hope you enjoy this site and find some useful tips at the same time.

The Obligatory Bits and Pieces

 

I'm trying to keep up-to-date with these, but I'm not always consistent. I don't feel the need to confine My Blog or Twitter to motorcycle issues. They're about whatever grabs me at the time. Take them on that basis. Follow me on Twitter - even on your mobile. Send me a message. I'd like to hear from you.

 Movies of Tours

I recently got into GoPro. I first used it on the Tibet Tour in 2013; and then on South India Tour in 2014.

Itís only been more recently (June 2014) that I have made movies of each tour. You can watch them in larger format on the tour pages. Donít forget to click on the settings icon (the cog) at right bottom of video frame and select HD720. Then watch it in full frame
