Hi, I'm 34 and am riding a small motorcycle round the world. I'm in Australia now trying to do a lap around the country. Started in Sydney and I'm in Cairns waiting for my tank to get fixed (40 year old bike). Probably be here until end of November waiting then make my way to Darwin, Broome, Perth, Melbourne, Tasmania and back to Sydney.

I'm too quiet for this and I'm looking for people to meet and things to do. I'm open minded about most anything.

wow... that sounds an awful lot like my plans... I didn't have the whole world as the itinerary, but I was shooting for several areas of it!

Mine won't be starting for another year or so, however....

sounds like a blast...

Dude! have fun!

Asia shouldn't be bad. Burma makes it hard to ride through and same with China. China is opening up so maybe by next year I can ride through China.

I don't have much money so I'll get a job in Japan teaching English and will run out of money again somewhere in Europe. The only crocs I saw where at zoos but I've seen about a million kangaroos and wallabies and babysat a wombat.

I finished the lap round Australia and I'm in New Zealand now.
