An easy day today with a shorter run through to Broome. Dick got on the phone to BMW in Perth and got things sorted for both bikes. New pannier and tyres for Olga and a tune-up for Helga. Not sure what BMW in Darwin did but they didn't get it quite right. Helga doesnt like being shut down and then started up again straight away - also idling roughly. If she wasn't fuel injected I'd have said it was a vapour lock but I guess it's some kind of computer setting thing.
On the road then down to Broome - good sealed road and we cruised into Broome before lunch. Went to the Visitor Centre and organised accommodation at a backpackers/hotel in Cable Beach. A bit expensive but it was breakfast included with vouchers for a free beer each so that was fine. And it had a pool and comfortable beds.
So we basically spent the day lounging around and pretending we were tourists. I spent some time in the pool and some in the internet room before we went out along the street to a local pub for dinner. It was great - heaps of families, good-humoured staff, reasonable music and the best fettucini I have had since arriving in Oz.
All good so we headed off to bed again.
