Appart from me and crabbait, anybody here from adelaide..
Hi tuki, Welcome to South Oz, land of great bike roads at your doorstep! :clap:Very timely post, or at least resurrection of a previous post.
I've applied for a job in Adelaide and at this stage at least it looks quite promising, so there's a reasonably good chance me and my Tre K might be new residents of the State before too much longer.
Which brings me to a question - any recommendations as to what motorcycle shops down there can be trusted to work on Benellis?
And anywhere to avoid as a place to live?
Yes Tuki, they do track days fairly often out at Mallala. My brother and his wife race out there and are usually at every track day as well. I'm just in the process of finding some leathers and prepping the 'Nelli for that very purpose so would welcome another fellow forum member on the track.Thanks Dave for the welcome, although it is a little early but much appreciated all the same. I'm looking forward to getting down there, seeing some new country and getting to know the other Nelli riders. I hear there are a few interesting roads in that part of the world.
And thanks for the info on the bike shops and localities to look for accommodation. I'm looking for a unit with a double lock up garage to store my car and more importantly, tools and bikes. My preference would be out towards the hills but most of the suitable places seem to be closer to the coast. Oh well, at least Adelaide is well set out and it doesn't take too long to get from one side to the other.
Do they do track days out at Malala?
I'll let you know when I've got the job offer in my claw.
Mate if you need somewhere to land for a few days I got a spare room. I live in Seacliff Park.Well the job offer has been made and accepted . Looks like there will be another Benelli (and owner) in Adelaide, probably early to mid December by the time I get all my stuff organised and moved.
I'm pretty enthusiastic about getting down there although I'm not too sure about the winters - having spent a fair bit of time in Far North Queensland I reckon the winters here in Port Macquarie are uncomfortably cold.
Hopefully there will be a chance to catch up with you blokes when I find somewhere to live and get a bit settled.
