Mount Panorama Bathurst!
Home of battles between dinosaurs.
Growling fuel guzzling menaces to society.
Born of post war labour and a man with a vision.
Possibly the worlds best most challenging and unforgiving road/racetrack.

Almost there, stopped at Mudgee cos it was almost Roo-o'clock not a good time to be riding.
Stopped here cos theres a friends of Bill meeting here too.
Contact there said his daughter worked at one of the towns six pubs, rang her and lined me up a room for $50
About to saddle up and ride the rest of the way..
A few pix...
More to come when I get the time.
Check the mailboxes!
And a town called Leadville!
No not in Texas!!! Hehe馃槑

Good lookin' tucker there MBX, but where's that beaver they're advertising? Colorado has a Leadville and its claim to fame is its the highest incorporated city/town in the US at 10,152 feet altitude or 3,094 metrers. This burg has been around a while, by US standards.

Looks like a good ride and the bike is really looking good. I like that extra rake the Vegas has. If I had the extra coin I'd like to rake my KP out just a bit. I'm thinking of going back to the Ness bars similar to what you have on yours tool.

Nothing comes close to Burleigh Bars manufactured from 304 grade American Stainless Steel...the best bars in the world dont come cheap though.
But I can ease the pain a little as Im mates with the guy that owns the business.
Ive secured us Victory Forum members a $100 off Burleigh Bars.
The factory is ten minutes from my place.

Anyway a few more pix before I hit the sack.
I hit the first pub in Bathurst this morning for anothet big feed.
Parked out front in the distance if you zoom you can see Mt Panorama written on the hill Hollywood style.
Other pic is me enjoying the comfort of
Comfortable seating for excellent food!
Girl said stick my Access Pass to the inside of my windscreen...but Im on a bike!
It hasnt got a windscreen? She asked?

They DO eat well on the Continent. The brekkys at the hotels there can be veritable groaning boards of cereals, pastries, cheeses, meats, egg dishes, bacon (although very flaccid - not crisp) and cakes.
Issat you in photo two?
Sorry, I thought that was a pic of your bike at sunset cuz I have no idea what a sunrise looks like. :)
