Sherri Jo Wilkins-Because I can world tour. 2013 Great Australian Ride Ambassador
Born in Indianapolis in the east of the United States, Sherri moved to Australia and lived in South Australia for 10 years. A strong believer in fate, Sherri jo wanted to travel the world and had to work out a way to do that!
Amazingly, as the challenges have arisen, the universe has arrived with the right solution at just the right time, people have turned up to help with training, modifying the bike, with welcome sponsorship and support and offering help and advice. So all that is left is to face the fear and do it anyway. Sherri selected the KTM 690, geared up and set off. To take any problem and turn them into solutions as when they arise. To transmute uncertainty into confidence and persistence and to enjoy the ride.

Pitstop on Mt Mee
The Pitstop Café situated at 2070a Mt Mee Rd is a craft shop that also has light refreshments and great coffee.
Apart from the local crafts and collectables for sale The Pitstop also has on display various car and motorcycle memorabilia as well as other interesting “old things”, with a different motorcycle or car from my collection on display every month.
The Pitstop is fast becoming a favorite refreshment stop for weekend motorcycle, bicyclists, car day trippers and car clubs on club runs who travel the Mt Mee tourist drive. There has been very positive feedback from all visitors which include locals, very quickly becoming regulars, as well as tourists from as far away as Ireland, Japan, Africa and Switzerland.
It’s not only the overseas visitors who have their photo taken against the backdrop of the magnificent view but locals as well. It’s a view which has to be seen to be believed. One visitor described it as: “When you look out at the view, time seems to stand still”.
My name is Kinga Tanajewska and bikes are my passion; I started riding in my teens and I’ve never looked back!
I’ve been mostly on road bikes, but since I moved to Australia (I’m originally from Poland) I’ve acquired a taste for adventure riding – and as we all know riding is the best way to explore any country!
So far, I've already realised my dream of circumnavigating Australia solo raising funds for The Shepherd Centre - Giving deaf children a voice.
There is no doubt that some people think we are crazy. There are also those out there who are more than a little envious of our lifestyle.
We’ve always want to live our lives with as few ‘if-onlys’ as possible. We didn’t want to sit back in our dotage and wish we’d done the big trip and regretted not doing it. There may be no tomorrow so you have to live life to its fullest.
When Shirley’s sister died of cancer there were many ‘if-onlys’ in her life. She was cut down in her prime with so much left to do – so much life to live.
Brian has owned and ridden motorcycles for more than 40 years, starting off riding paddock bikes around his father’s farm near Mildura (Victoria). His back yard was about 90 miles of river frontage. Brian has no doubt that riding on mud, clay, sand, salt flats and bush trails all those years ago will help when he rode across Siberia, through the wilds of Mongolia and the mountain passes of Tajikistan’s Pamir Region.
Brian has the good fortune of having a wife who likes riding pillion and enjoys long distance trips too. Our other great leisure time passion is travelling. We want to experience everything we can.
We’re passionate motorcyclists! We ride and travel because it is what we love! To be able to share this with others is a great honor and dream, so come along for the ride and let us look after everything for you.
With tried and tested routes we know you’re in for one hell of a treat! Don’t forget your cameras as you will want to remember this experience for the rest of your life!
