12/08/2017 Broadbeach to Brisbane (final leg)

3 nights in Broadbeach was very nice. 24-27 deg each day, clear blue skies and little wind. Stayed with Mum and Dad which was a good catch up. We explored the shopping mall Pacific Fair which is very impressive and modern.

Lazy days relaxing, eating , drinking and walking.

On the road this morning for Brisbane. We arrived here with ease and after off loading our bags, rode out to Morgan and Wacker, the Harley shop to drop the bikes off. We stowed our leathers and boots on the bikes and left them in the good hands of the guys there, ready to ship back to Auckland. We walked back to Fortitude Valley carrying our helmets.

A nice final walk through Brisbane, then back to do some final packing for the flight home tomorrow.

We are both looking forward to getting home. We have been on the road for 7 weeks. We’ve stayed in lots of hotels, motels and apartments. We’ve ridden from Brisbane to Cooktown, down to Sydney and back to Brisbane, about 9000K’s.

We’ve had mostly great weather and great safe riding. It’s been a wonderful adventure, being on the road with my best friend, we’ve seen all we wanted to see. Now we’re thinking of our next adventure…
