Motorcycle Ride Reviews of South Australia

Got a ride you reckon is a cracker? We'd love to add it to these. Some reviews come as text articles, some are audio's and others are in a video format, either a screen capture of a map and discussion of the route, or a full motion video.

The intent is to give a fellow motorcyclist an inkling of what they might expect over the route. Never intended to be gospel, the full picture or a bible to travel by. But hopefully giving a real insight from a fellow motorcyclist. Something you don't get from the motoricng organisations.

If you've got an idea for a review email me  with  your contact details and I'll give you a call to go over it. At the bottom of the reviews I have put together some ideas on format for you, check them out.


Otherwise, enjoy these reviews: Disclaimer

    Review of the ride up the Stuart Highway between Port Augusta and Alice Springs. Things to see and places to stay.
  • Postie Posse
    REview of the Postie Posse ride orgainsed by Greg Kipling to raise money for childhood cancer. It looked a lot of fun.
  • Postie Posse Movie
    A powerpoint movie of the 2007 Postie Posse showing some great photos and captions of the event.

I’d Love To Publish Your Ride Reviews!

Seriously, share and educate the listeners and readers about your favourite roads. There are thousands of brilliant motorcycling roads and highways available to the motorcycle traveller in Australia. But where are they?

Local knowledge is the key. Write to me about your favourite day ride or weekender. What is the best long trip you’ve done and why? It might be all bitumen or all dirt or a combination of the two.

Road Rider magazine quotes these statistics from a survey of their readers.

91% of readers ride at least once a week
51% of readers ride 3-7 days per week
76% of readers take off on an all day or all weekend ride at least once a month
41.3% of readers take off on an all day or all weekend ride at least once a week
or once a fortnight
72% of readers take off on a two or more day trip every six months

Considering their quoted readership is 87,500 per quarter (at time of their publication), that’s a hell of a lot of us out and about looking for somewhere to ride. They also say that 85% of their readers ONLY read Road Rider and you would assume that the statistics for Motorcycle Riders would be similar for the other magazines. Looking at the readership of the other magazines this means a crapload of riders out doing it at any given time!

You can write it or I can interview you and record it. The important thing is your ride review highlights things like:

  • Where it is?
  • How do I find it?
  • Is the ride better approached one way or another?
  • Are there dangers I should look out for?
  • Where are the fuel supplies?
  • Where are the pubs, coffee shops and best places to eat?
  • Is there some particular motorcycle friendly accomodation?
  • Where should I avoid?
  • How long is it and how best to chunk it into pieces? (for the longer rides)
  • Points of interest?
  • Best sections to ride?
  • Transport sections?
  • Motorcycle repair facilities?
  • Motorbike tyre facilities?
  • Amount of Tar?
  • Amount of dirt?
  • Condition of tar and dirt?
  • GPS or Map co-ordinates?
  • Whatever you can think another motorcyclist is gonna want to know!

So c’mon fess up. What’s your favourite ride, favourite road or trip. Or maybe you want to tell us about a one off trip with your mates and the adventures and fabulous roads you covered.

Simply send me your article to  or contact me via the same email with your rough outline and phone number and we’ll set up a time to talk by phone and I’ll record it to post on the site.

Looking forward to your input!
