Uncrating the bikes at the port in Sydney with Chris' uncle Zoli.  The 80 year old man insisted on working the crow-bar -- it was pretty amazing to watch him.

We left the bikes in Sydney, and flew down to Melbourne for a week -- relegating ourselves once again to "backpacker" status.

A city of about 3.5 million people

Look out for the wave!

Participating in a Friday night custom:  Pete, Erin, Brooke, Slip, and Chris
