Chief Street Halloween Jam 2014

Adelaide had a reason to be afraid yet again this Halloween. This years pre City Dirt Jam was my first time going, and it was pretty much all the hype i’d heard and more. Much more. There was a few crazy things done on the bikes and everyone got a good ride in before the rain came after dark. That didn’t stop the party as everyone there had come in a Halloween spirit.

I’ll let the photographs do the talking…

The final photo dump from Australia’s Northwest.

It’s been a journey, with a start, and soon an end. With loads of variety, we’ve enjoyed our time there. Here’s to a new start and a great life, continued onwards and upwards. Cheers.

The last two years.

Right. I have 63 photos to show you that haven’t made it onto this webpage yet. They are either forgotten images, they didn’t make the cut at the time or they have been put up elsewhere and never made it here. I will be dumping 10 or so images at a time untill i have the full 63 uploaded. This will give you a good flow of pictures for the week or whatever. I’ll try to give a title or description on each photo so you have an idea about it, or some backstory to ‘paint’ a better picture in your head. They are all from my time in North Western Australia over the Last two years. Mostly the Pilbara and a couple from Exmouth. Enjoy…
