Let's Get Started!
My name is Kinga and bikes are my passion; I started riding in my teens and I’ve never looked back!
I’ve been mostly on road bikes, but since I moved to Australia (I’m originally from Poland) I’ve acquired a taste for adventure riding– and as we all know riding is the best way to explore any country!
Thanks to my supportive husband (who’s got more understanding and patience than anyone in the world!) and the awesome company I work for (who’ve given me the opportunity) I’m making my dream come true:
I’m going around Australia on my bike!
My trip will be divided into three parts:
Stage one: Sydney to Port Headland (c. 9000 km)
Late March, 2013, I will be leaving our home in Sydney and travelling north, first around Queensland, then through the north of the Northern Territory, and finally arriving for my new work detail in Port Headland.
I’m planning to take it easy on the way, take in the local scenery, and so I’ve worked it out to be a 4 week trip.
Stage two: New Position
I’ll be working at the mines in Western Australia for 6 months, and am hoping to do some adventure riding while I’m there: subscribe to this blog via RSS or my Facebook page to keep up to-date!
Stage three: Port Headland to Sydney (c. 7000 km)
The plan is (depending on work) that after 6 months I’ll be leaving Port Headland and heading back home. First I’ll head south and tour the rest of WA, then make my way back east via the beautiful states of South Australia and Victoria.
I’ve planned it so it’ll take 3 weeks – not too fast, not too slow.
So, with a very special thanks to Santa, I’ve bought a brand new BMW F800GS. I first rode a friend’s 1200 about a year ago, and have been in love with the bikes since. Now, I’ve always had Japanese road bikes, so this is change, and I’m ready to cop a bit of slack about getting a Beamer, but the fact is that it’s the right bike for me and for this trip.
I’ve also invested a bit into gear for the trip (again thanks to Santa, who is starting lose patience) and am looking forward to testing it during my challenging trip: I’ll be posting reviews on here so remember to subscribe!
