Long Ride 2011

After waiting for more than a long year, the next edition of the Long Ride is finally just around the corner! This year’s event will take us more than 3800 km from Sydney via Broken Hill, Adelaide, Melbourne and Canberra back to Sydney (map and Google Earth .kmz file enclosed).

Best thing is that my fiancee will come along this time riding her own GS. Both bikes are in good shape – with new tyres and full service done (see pictures). Well, I still need to change engine oils, but that is pencilled in for next weekend.

Here the link to the event website:


Is all about raising awareness for prostate cancer. Did you know that prostate cancer is the most common cancer in Australian men and the second most common cause of male cancer deaths? Sadly, this year almost 20,000 Australian men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer and 3,300 men will die of the disease. What is not commonly understood is that men can be diagnosed with prostate cancer as early as in their forties.

To support the foundation, my fiancee and I have set up a donation website as TEAM BERG – so please support this cause and give generously:
