I had the extreme good fortune to visit Australia this past winter. As an escape from shovels and parkas and frosted windows on the car, Australia can’t be beaten. I also enjoyed the added bonus of a couple of superb rides on my friend’s newly restored BMW R80G/S. But that isn’t what comes to mind when I look back on the riding and the roads and vehicles. Apparently every driving culture has its own image to uphold and the Aussies are no exception.
