Day 5 : 26th April 2013 : 1000 Kms first service at Brisbane

The first day saw me leave from the Kennedy Drive Best Western onto Brisbane. For the first time on the ride I saw clouds. I prayed that it shouldnt rain.



Met up with Todd in Tweed Heads. Back in 2010 he was running the Spyder Ryder in this region, and he gave me a Can Am Spyder to ride around the east coast!


Then I went off to Ducati Brisbane where Bob gave the Mutistrada its first 1000 kms service.



That is where I also met Mark Hinchliffe, a veteran motorcycle journalist in Australia who came to have a bit of chat with me. Learn a few thing from him as well about the oodles of wildlife on the road I should be worried about!




Then I met Riccardo, who was a Multistrada owner with a  nice plush seat!

This is Bob from Ducati Brisbane surrounded by everything Ducati!


I also paid a quick visit to Brisbane Motorcycles who are revamping their showroom to make a Ducati special section taking into account the growing sales and demand of the Ducs!

Time to relax on this relatively short riding day at the Best Western Gregory Terrace in Brisbane!
