BluCru WR250R Rally Cessnock AUS.

Recommended Posts

A quick update on my trip to Australia. After a grueling 15 hr flight to Sydney, we were met by our host Greg Yager who operates AdvWorx in Dural AUS. We have been stayin in a cabin near the shop the last couple days and partaking in many frosty beverages while prepping rented bikes for the rally. The locals here are super friendly and can put away some brews. My liver will suffer for it.  Yesterday we made a trip to Lithgow AUS. to pick up some moto parts at another shop. It was a 3 hour drive through the countryside. It’s gorgeous and much like California. 

Today (its Thursday here) we are headed to Cessnock to do final prerunningof route and set up for the rally. It’s has been raining a lot and conditions will be challenging but fun. More to follow...

Not really and adventure bike but the mail is delivered all over Australia on these Honda Trail bikes called Posties. They ride them rain or shine with big yellow bags on the rack. Retired Posties get rebuilt and raced in Cessnock. This was in the bar we were in last night in Cessnock and our host has one he is building.

Well the ride is over and now off to Sydney for a few days of sightseeing. A little sore from my four falls. All fairly easy close inspections of Australia soil. I’ll have soil samples to bring home. Both days included a mix of pavement, fire roads, single track, deep rutted mud, sand, rocks, wet grass and bottomless water puddles. A little odd riding a rented bike, but we had a blast! There were all kinds of riders including an 80 year old who was tough to keep up with. Dude ripped! Some incredible sights to see that typical tourists would have never seen. Some of my pics and a few I borrowed from another riders helmet video. 

Video is of a thunder storm that rolled in after day one. Nothing like we see in Cali.
