York Motorcycle Festival, Sunday 15th April
OAE will be at the York Motorcycle Festival again this year after the fun we had last year. We'll have a bigger stand & a lot more going on, so don't miss us! There will be prizes & giveaways, show specials, & kitted out bikes on display. So far, we can confirm that Forma Australia is donating a pair of the brand new Terra Evo adventure boots as a giveaway, & there will be a massive sale on helmets from Carlisle Tyres & Accessories! Stayed tuned to our Facebook page for more info as the event gets closer.
If you want to make a weekend of it, join one of the rides to York, enjoy the free concert, Show 'N Shine & Vintage Collective Markets on Saturday 14th & camp on the Rec Ground oval. Find out more about the festival on their website and on Facebook.
Horizons Unlimited WA Adventure Weekend, 17th-20th May

Register now on the HUWA Event page
Registration includes all riding activities (mini-HUMM, ride-outs, challenges), films, presentations & tech sessions.
Introductory off-road rider training is $75 extra.
If you're looking for inspiration for your next adventure, or need a few more skills to help your travels, then this is the meet for you! We'll be nestling into our new home at Yourdamung Road Retreat near Collie. We have a whole weekend planned of riding skills challenges, educational workshops, skills demos & a photo scavenger hunt. On Friday, you can either join the introductory off-road riding training with West Moto Adventures, or spend the day riding the Collie area. Otherwise join us Saturday for the main event (starts early!). The Adventure Travel Film Festival - WA will be playing some films to whet your appetite for the WA event (see below). We'll even have a traditional New Zealand hāngī for dinner!
Camping is available at the venue from Thursday night (yes, you can now park your bike at your tent!) for $25/weekend or $10/night Friday & Saturday. Otherwise you can book rooms at the venue or in the Collie area.
Draft schedule is on the event registration page & watch the HUWA Facebook page for updates. We're excited to confirm that writer & adventurer Heather Ellis, author of Ubuntu, will join us to talk about her Silk Road travels & present a Writing Travel Memoir workshop :-)
The Snowy Mountains meet is now open for registrations for 16-19 November 2018. Visit the Snowy meet event page for details. Start planning your cross-Oz adventure now! OAE will be there, we're just fighting over who gets to go ;-)

READ OUR RTW TRAVEL BLOG
...well, at least the preparation stage & first 4 months of travel anyway! As time permits, we'll get back to uploading entries. Our blog, called Two-up On A Twin, is written in a He Says/She Says style & covers the 17-month trip that OverlanderAE's owners, Tam & Xander Kabat, did in 2009-2010 through Europe, Africa & SE Asia. Our travel beast was Anubis, a Honda Africa Twin XRV750 (RD07A, year 2000), which is still Xander's travel bike & most-days commute with over 300,000km on the clock :-)
