I was going through an external hard drive looking for a document I needed, and noticed some pics of a ride I did in 2010 on my red RS. I took two months, maybe nine weeks all up, and rode right round the edge of Australia, solo. To say the least, it was an awesome experience as I had never seen Western Australia to that point. It's a bloody big country with a whole lot of nothing in places, but its beauty can be wild, harsh, captivating & dangerous, or it can be subtle, ancient, vast, weathered & worn, and left a lasting impression on my psyche. So, the impetus here is for me to recreate that trip at some stage in the not-too-distant future.

Find a picture of a favourite ride on your K bike (please, no Rs, or H-Ds or Buells or Kwackas) and post up some shots that you think are good. Scenery is always nice. It doesn't have to be an exotic locale, anywhere will do in this great big beautiful world, but it likely will be to another forum member. I don't care if you have only one happy snap, or an entire stack of 'em. Try to keep it to images of the K we all know and love.

This could be fun. I'll start it off with a few of my own.

On Thunderbolt's Way. Nothing unusual about this trip except the photo shows the bike after I had crashed it and broke 6 ribs and an AC joint etc. The members of this group had so kindly helped me get the bike back on the road in so many ways... Donations of parts, help with re-construction, electrical help etc. They know who they are and I remain grateful.

My favourite K with the wifes Blackbird. The K1200GT was brand new and this was the first visit to the south of France from England. Little did we know that 7 months later we would both resign from our jobs, sell our houses and move there for ever. 
In my opinion this was the best Brick that BMW ever built. It had heated grips, heated seat, ABS and electric windscreen, the wifes Honda had none of that.
On these bikes we did the 550 mile trip from here to Calais in less than 6 hours riding once. The dead flies were 2cm thick on the windscreen.

One of my more memorable rides was taking my son to Tasmania . We spent 2 weeks riding together , camping along the way. His favourite spot was Bicheno on the East Coast , where we visited the Devil Park and Motorcycle Museum . He also enjoyed his time with the Packo's who were travelling on their K100 outfit .

Ten years ago I travelled from Berkshire UK to Switzerland in one day, covering 660  miles.

I had no Sat Nav,  no Smart phone, which made it an interesting introduction to European 

biking.  Getting off the ferry at Calais at 4am ,  I bought some well known caffeine drinks and a packet of 

choccy bars to keep me going.

Was lucky in finding petrol stations a few times when running low .

Riding through France was great, and was glad to see the Swiss Border signs.

I did this trip twice in four months and loved every minute  of it.

My Route was Calais to Dijon, then east through Champagnole and down into Nyon at Lac Leman
