Vintage Rides

Some of my Sunday ride reports from my old blog will start to appear here as a way for me to preserve the old photos. I will back date them but Wordpress seems to still show them as a new post.

First published 02.03.2013 to motorcycleparadise.blogspot.com I think that was a motorcycle slogan once. I know I have said it before in this blog somewhere but today the thought came to me anew not recycled from the past. I was riding my old favourite loop into NSW via Mt Lindsey, Summerland […]

Road Games

First published 08.04.2012 to motorcycleparadise.blogspot.com That was the title of a Australian movie in the 70’s or maybe early 80s. Seems not much different to real life some days. Lovely quick run down the M1, not much traffic at all. People still tell me they cannot stand to ride down […]
