Editor’s comment: I received a telephone call this afternoon by a non-member who said that I should have a look at this guy called Murph – and who the hell is Murph? you (and I) might ask. Never before had I heard of him, however this phone call changed all that.
This man Murph is a traveller, an adventure rider of a class that few of us will equal. Maybe if this current life goes all pear-shaped I might do the same as what he has done – go travel on a bike with no return ticket… What a dream! -Ed.
The first video is an introduction, the second is a list of movies on youTube. Spend a Friday night,or a Saturday night seeing where Murph has been:
Murph’s website is here at “Where The Hell Is Murph’s?” website
The videos can be found here at “Where The Hell Is Murph?” videos

The 2012 Pink Ribbon Ride is probably Australia’s largest annual rally with this year 1200 bikes and $80,000 raised for breast cancer research (source, PRR’s Facebook page). Not a bad effort, at all… Great fun, with some outrageously dressed people and … Continue reading
Pictures from the last Far Cairn Rally… (I have cheated a bit with the picture of George and Charis being from last year; however the FCR is as much about this extraordinary couple as it is about the cause they support: MARI, Motorcycle Accident Rehabilitation Initiative for which north of $5000 was raised on the FCR weekend. Sadly old age and ill health have caught up with George and he and Charis were not able to attend this year’s rally, but were there in spirit. – ed)
