AUSTRALIA: Cape York on 110cc
« on: September 28, 2008, 09:25:21 am »
Hi everyone...
It's been a long time since I posted here...just seem to have the wrong material for this site most of the time, this yarn might fit though...



3 ex-Australia Post delivery bikes, 3 mates, 3 weeks


I'm uploading and writing as fast as I can...



http://www.austouring.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1925



Cape York is the most northern tip of Australia and a little more than 1000km/ 600mi from the next substantial town, Cairns, on the AUS- East Coast....welcome to corrugations that pulverize men and machine... deep sand, river Xings and awesome 4WD tracks. Crocs, snakes, seized engines and living on 2minute-noodles for days...



All that and a hell of a lot more...on tiny 110cc Hondas, carrying EVERYTHING.....and without any backup.



Enjoy...

Some pics from the story so far...

Nice pics! I enjoy everything about australia these days...
Trials are survivable. We must keep our eternal perspective through the tough times.

We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed and broken. We are perplexed, but we donít give up and quit. We are hunted down, but God never abandons us. We get knocked down, but we get up again and keep going.Ē (2 Cor. 4:8-9 NLT)

No matter how much you push the envelope, it'll still be stationery.
