To build the HU community in WA, we'll be organising & encouraging others to lead weekend trips so we can all get out there, learning to ride with luggage, practicing on all types of roads & meeting with like-minded travellers. Join the HUWA community via Facebook & the HU communities to find out when trips are happening, or stay tuned to the OAE e-news & Facebook page.

...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 around 300,000km on the clock :-)
