Day 3 : 24th April: Port Macquarie to Lismore via Dorrigo: Further North through the World’s Smallest Motorcycle Museum

Another Day, another start. Saying bye to the Macquarie Barracks Best Western and heading on to further north. This was the route I did today, via the Waterfall way for a total of 460 kms.

This was a lunch stop at Juan’s Motorcycle Cafe in Dorrigo. Juan is an energetic cafe owner who has put his cafe to good use (and marketing!) by saying its the ‘World’s Smallest Motorcycle Museum’. Indeed it is a museum of sorts with three off motorcycles, and lots of stuff, most of it gifted to the cafe. It makes for an interesting coffee as you just stroll around and see tid bits. Now a xBhp magazine also found a place in there!

I bumped into these couple of riders earlier as well. Now when they saw me again, we had to strike a conversation! And then they got busy flipping through the xBhp magazine as well as the Australiam Motorcyclist Magazine.

And thats me on the right with Juan. He is from Argentina and he says his country is very beautiful! I hope I find that out first hand!

Juan also told me an interesting incident which happened with him while riding a few days ago when a Kangaroo hit him. More on this on this blog.

I rode into the night on forested roads inspite the plentiful warnings. I guess it is a matter of luck.

This place below has Russell Crowe’s personal collection of “Interesting Things” as a museum. Pity it wasnt advertised well otherwise I would have budgeted time for this on the ride !

Finally arrived in the town of Lismore and the Best Western that I was staying today was along a lake which I couldnt see in the night. However, I set up headquarters for work here and got down to it!
