Default Hello from Coolum Beach, Australia

Greetings all, bought a new 2012 650 Versys a few months ago and just stumbled across this forum. I hope to find some interesting info and maybe some other riders from my neck of the woods...

Welcome from Newcastle, NSW. Consider it Coolum South.

Did you watch The Strange Calls on ABC TV?

It's a comedy series that was set in Coolum. A delightfully weird sense of humour but I suspect some of the people of Coolum would rather it was set somewhere else. http://thestrangecalls.abc.net.au/

I am a fair way from Coolum (been there, though), however, it's good to see a few Aussies on this forum.

If you love riding/touring, make sure you come down to Tassie at some stage. We have some of the best bike roads in Aus, if you can dodge all the dead-bry (road-kill). Sadly, there's far fewer Tasmanian Devils to clean it up these days.

Indeed, Tassie has more roadkill than you'd see anywhere in the world. Almost feels like a local hobby leftovers... and yeah, no devils, sadly. Hope somebody finds the way to save them.
