“genuine”

That’s the word that’s needed here. I genuinely wish I’d been able to stay the night at this place, run by a genuine couple with genuine motivations and ideals and surrounded by genuine locals and blow-ins. If you want to escape the false facades of people and places that would sell their souls and prostitute their intentions to make fast, easy money, there is simply no more authentic place to find yourself than the Duke of Edinburgh Hotel at Booligal. It’s just 40 bucks a night, a measly half that if you’re with a mate, meals any time you’re hungry and run by a couple who won’t let you get one step inside the bar before you’re hit with a “G’day”. No matter when you front, you won’t be the most interesting person…

gold, gold, gold... coast

GOLD COAST Harley-Davidson has won the 2019 Australian and New Zealand Harley-Davidson custom motorcycle build-off competition, Battle of the Kings, which returned to Australian and New Zealand shores for the second year. From the 26 participating dealerships across Australia and New Zealand, five finalists were selected by the general public. Each finalist was judged and scored against three categories - character, styling and x-factor - by the carefully selected Battle of the Kings Judging panel made up of experienced industry professionals and ambassadors. Using a Softail Slim as the base model, Gold Coast Harley-Davidson entered their custom motorcycle Hollister Riot into the CHOP category – one of three new design categories implemented for the 2019 build off – to create a masterpiece that pays respect to the old Panheads and Knuckleheads. The springer…

2020 yamaha r1/r1m

THE CURRENT Yamaha R1 has been a hit around the world, winning many championships, pushing for wins in World Superbike and of course being promoted by one of the greats, Valentino Rossi. Two models are available, being the R1 and up spec R1M. For 2020 the main upgrade is to meet the restrictive Euro 5 emissions regulations, but what has that done to the R1 and R1M in real life? I headed out to Sydney Motorsport Park as part of the Yamaha R-Experience track day to give both bikes a blast. Rather than just choke the R1 and R1M to meet Euro 5, Yamaha has redesigned many components to give both bikes more performance – amazing, but true. Some of those new features/redesigns include a redesigned cylinder head, fuel injectors, finger-follower rocker…
