old pix ... new pix ...

Around 30 years ago I did a trip from Narrabri to Minnie Waters via Mclean on my Yamaha XS250. I stopped just out of Glen Innes at a little rest stop called Beardy Waters and took this photo.



July 2013 I was riding past and recognised the place I stopped all those years ago and took another photo with my Versys.



December 2013 going past again but this time my Versys was painted so again I took another picture



I found it interesting to compare.

End of line
