Our arrival back into Melbourne was premature given we were not booked on the boat until the 6th December.
The reason for our premature arrival was so we could attend the Australian Motorcycle Expo. Cian and Katy were flying over from Hobart for the expo and Bryce didn't need them to twist his arm to attend too.
On the Thursday night before the expo we donned all our synthetic fibres and headed into the Capitol Theatre to see the Radical Reels Tour, part of the Banff Mountain Film Festival. You can check out the youTube trailer here. It is always good to watch mad, clever, crazy, fit people throwing their bodies of cliff tops.
Friday night was dinner and a catch up with friends. We had an awesome meal at Ladro in Fitzroy. Great choice girls!
By now we were slowly getting the hang of the unreliable Melbourne Myki cards and had the trains and trams all sussed out.
Heading into the town on the train on Saturday morning we met up with the Morgans and Iain and wandered around the motorcycle expo.
Much to Bryce's disappointment there were no purchases made (except a raffle ticket and lunch). He did however pick out a KTM 200 Duke as Jaks' LAMS bike. Will have a closer look at them when we get back to Hobart.
Our plans to head down the coast early in the week were put on hold by massive thunderstorms and heavy precipitation. The hard roof of Marcus' house was slightly more appealing.
