Welcome to the forum and enjoy your new ride. Some of the best riding Iíve ever done was when I visited Cairns. Rented a kinda beat R1200GS and rode the coast, through the mountains to the Tablelandsand back again. The roads were like billiard tables, smooth without a blemish. Hope you share some sights when you ride around.

Brisbane is 70kms away and I can get to the international airport in 1 hour 15 minutes.
The type of living that you're describing is exactly what I'm looking for. My wife wants to be close to the ocean, which complicates things slightly (it sure raises those property values), and as a remote worker, I pretty much have to have NBN. But I'm sure we'll find the right place before too long. The first step is moving up to the Gold Coast area...we'll probably rent for a year, and explore, and find just the right spot.

I can't wait.

I can't wait to get up to Cairns...probably won't happen for another year, but maybe we'll find a way to get up there this July, when my wife is on break from Uni. I will definitely share the sights of the rides, and look forward to seeing yours and other members rides, as well.

I don't actually have a ride yet! I've decided on the Versys 650, but haven't found the right one, yet. I reckon that will happen sometime over the next month. I'll definitely be letting everyone know when it happens.
