  • From day one when the limo collected us from the airport it was a holiday we would cherish for the rest of our life. Everything we did and were involved in showed someone had put a lot of thought into making this holiday one they would like to go on. The bike was new and gleaming, they all gleam when you start out, 4000 km plus of glorious unbelievable scenery and experiences later, they had got dirty but it’s actually a veneer of fantastic memories. Wifey was as enthusiastic as me and even enjoyed her days in the air conditioned bus that carried our luggage about on the one day it rained, one of the best riding days, and on the days she let me ride the best motorcycle road in the world solo. It left me speechless and euphoric!
