Hi and welcome to my blog which contains a collection of ride reports about good motorcycle roads to be found along the Australian East coast with a focus on the QLD/NSW border region.

Some of the original road reports are now looking dated, I actually started the first Motorcycle Paradise web page in the early 90's and you can still see some of the original photos on here that were scanned from paper photos at the time.

I might eventually update these older stories however I like to maintain some of the history. You can always find more recent road info and photos in the Australian tour articles and one day ride reports. Recently I have started to ride overseas more and hope to share these travels with you as well.

Thanks for dropping by. Regards, Warren AKA Iron Chef.

Good Motorcycle Reading

I am still without a motorcycle and I am now in the northern hemisphere where it is too cold for me to consider riding for a while (although I hear some brave souls on the weekend taking off in the early hours).

So I am spending considerable time reading about other people riding over at the ADV site and lots of gear reviews over at Web Bike World.

If you have not visited either of these excellent sites before then be prepared to lose many hours or days of your life.

I like the look of the new 2014 CB1100 (EX) however not sure I will buy another one...


  1. Yes I like the look of the BMW Nine T Robert however my experience with BMW's has been less than satisfactory. I rented one of their motorcycles and it had unreliable electrics and I also owned a new car from them which suffered premature mechanical and electrical failures.

  2. Seems like our choices are almost similar because I also really loved the new look of CB1100. But the price is little bit high, It just seemed to me.

  3. I love the look yet for touring it is not really the best choice. However bike choice is often is 90% emotional and 10% rational.
