AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

I have seen that paint work on many cars here too!! Some of them have now become old and appear like toothless tigers lying abandoned at a wayside garage!! :D Harley has maintained them well there!!

Why, I think you should hug your bikey spirit fiercely and never let her go!

Can you see a phoenix here or here?
