Funny how a single letter can remove a definition by such a distance.. :)

It's a pretty good move - marketing wise - by Victory.. Setting up a shop that close to Sturgis... Smart.

I love how the US is set out. From an outsider it seems no matter where in the US you go, across the country there is a population / city / town with great access and support.

Here is Australia if you go 150 miles outside the major cities you have pretty much nothing. Sure, we don't have many people but reading and looking at the Victory tuners it makes me jealous. I mean the Vic Shop has a good business and is in the countryside!

There was an Australian Army medical unit in Baghdad one time when I passed through for a few days. There was not a single ugly woman in the unit and they were all friendly and giggled a lot. Yes, Australia has its benefits.

Get out into the country MBX, I'm 65km to the nearest traffic light and another 35km to the next one. I live on the Oxley Hwy which, for our US friends is definitely a top 5 ride in Australia. 180km to the beach including over 300 corners in one 40km stretch.
Our girls are of the woolly, bleating kind. Out here we ride with gumboots on.

Just checking the Oxley Hwy out on the map and it looks like a magnificent ride!~.........I'll definitely get down that way before too long.
Is it a better run heading west or east?..from Waughope to the National Park looks fun:smile

It is best coming up from the coast.....uphill is more fun than downhill. Come & stay at our motel....you will be made welcome.

Well mate, thats a great idea, and yeah fanging it uphill is much more enjoyable.
So youre at Walcha I'd guess by those kilometers.
Which motel? There looks to be two or three.
That road is legendary.
