Shortly we’ll have a disc available that will offer five days of premium riding on the NSW mid-north coast. The disc will offer maps, route sheets, landmarks, fuel and accom information, and GPX files for download.
Meanwhile, the site will hopefully be a place for Australian dualsporters to call home on the web. As more and more areas are closed off to Aussie riders, and the first generation of hard-core dirt riders heads into middle-age and beyond, dualsport riding is growing. Older riders who’ve done with racing, or are just plain bored with the drama of trying to find somewhere they can ride their favourite enduro bike or motocrosser, are discovering the joys of heading to parts of this country that are just a little hidden away. There’s so much less hassle when the bike’s registered and the rider’s licensed, and the highest priority is on good friends, gorgeous scenery and a bike you love.
As far as gorgeous scenery goes, Australia has more of it, and more of it open and accessible, than any other country in the world. The only problem is the country’s so damn big. In reality, that’s not a problem at all. It’s a gift.
Whether you’re on an old and trusted XL185 or the current model Euro masterpiece doesn’t matter much. It’s about the ride, and finding the places so few people get to.
Have a look around. Hopefully you’ll find something to pass a little blue-sky time, maybe fire up a dream or two, and, best of all, something in common with the others using the site.
Please make use of the comments panel to say what you’d like to see or not see, and feel free to ask for information or help. If possible, the site will offer both.
