For a number of years I struggled to find a camp chair for motorcycle camping that was small, light and comfortable. No you don’t need a chair but its nice to sit and have a cuppa at the end of the day.
I remember when I finally threw out the tripod chair in disgust and hit google trying to find a suitable option. My requirements, small, light, it had to have a back, and it had to be comfortable. This is when I found Helinox.
I love my Helinox chair.
A quick look back at our 2019 through photos and the scary finish of the year and start of 2020 with monster fires in Australia.
We need to say yes more often. This weekend I took up the offer to go riding with a new group of people. We took in many great roads in the NSW and Victorian high country and had a lot of fun just hanging out with a new group of riders.
While I’ve completed a few of these rides now, I wouldn’t say they are easy, just that our approach to them is more casual. We know what it takes. A ride like this is not about speed it’s about consistency. It’s spending time in the saddle not in the cafe sipping your latte.
The Saddle Sore 1600, or 1600km in 24 hours. The minimum endurance ride certified by the Iron Butt Association (IBA).
This weekend wasn’t about a big ride. It was a chance to simply get out for a ride in the mountains, do some camping, and just hang out with a couple of mates. A chance to escape the city and just be in the moment. Enjoy the scenery, the road, and the angry growl of a 14 echoing off mountain walls. Just enjoying being alive.
In motorcycle circles, there is often talk about cars not seeing you, or cutting you off. I have to believe that people aren’t actually out there to get me. I would be really worried if that was the case.
I believe that largely it isn’t that we aren’t visible but that we aren’t seen?
A review of the Viking Cycle Ironside mesh jacket that the guys at Viking Cycle sent me to test.
Weekend motorcycle ride to the western NSW town of Wilcannia for the inauguration of the Iron Butt Association (IBA) Australia memorial. An opportunity to ride, camp, hang out with friends, and remember friends no longer with us.
Over the years we have collected magnets from our travels. Our fridge was running out of room, so it was time for a better solution to display all our travel memories.
It’s two months since our ride in the Swiss alps and we are craving more time in the mountains. Last minute plans saw us on the bike and heading for the Australian high country for an early Spring ride.
