Day 1 : A 250 kms warm up ride!

Started off from the Best Western Stellar Hotel in Sydney around noon. Didnt have many kays to do today. Approx 250. I got the first taste of the countryside with beautiful farms and gentle rolling hills. The route taken was via Cessnock: http://goo.gl/maps/jpO7f

The first horse of the trip! If this were NZ, it would have been most definitely a sheep!

Horses and other bovine creatures gnaw harmlessly behind the fences besides the country highways. It is the hopping kind which are the real danger!

I wonder what happened to this car. Looks like a nice street art at the  moment though. Someone should do a graffiti on this. I hope the occupants were unscathed.

Ah! Maybe this is what happened! A road side museum entrance, very catchy and classy. I like this type of stuff! Look closer and you will realize it is made up on vehicle and motorcycle parts!

The Multistrada looked like a predator ready to take on those ants with its pointed beak if the need should arise.

A visit to Fraser Motorcycles Ducati showroom in Newcastle was done just in nick of time. The shops close at 5.30PM. I arrived at 5.35 just to catch Malcolm, the showroom principal!
