The Stockman Hotel – Texas.


Officially the biker friendliest pub in Australia! At least that’s what the owner’s wife Colin told me, not that he’s biased in any way of course!

Having said that, I did receive a very warm welcome. I met up with an old friend Mal and we bush camped at the outskirts of town. Mal got me into hammock camping and it’s great! (I’m blogging from my hammock right now).

The hotel has leaflets printed with great riding roads, routes and directions. Every room has bike cleaning kit included and the locals all seem to ride. By the end of the night I almost felt guilty for not staying there.

In the morning Colin got some shots for the bike MAG he works for, but I’m not holding out any hope of being famous. (Been there before!).

About Sophie Whiptank - aka Bart

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
