We have a travelling companion for this journey – Ken the Koala.

He’s not to be confused with the koala who has travelled everywhere with us on the motorcycle.  Brenda has been from London to Australia overland and was rescued when our 1150 met its maker. She is battered and bruised. Her ears have been superglued back together. She’s missing quite a bit of fur and has to be cable-tied to the bike to avoid being koalanapped.  Brenda is old enough to be Ken’s grandmother and is teaching him the ropes of extreme travel.

He will appear here periodically. Keep an eye out for him.

Ken is a keen supporter of the Port Macquarie Hospital. He’d like you to check out their website and consider helping this worthy cause that cares for injured koalas on the NSW north coast.
