I went in early August, so it was basically the middle of winter there (15 degress C during the day- ugh).
What I've heard of Aussie was true, bikes rule the roads there, you have the freedom to do almost what you want (within limits).
Parking galore, with designated bike spots.
The drivers (at least in Sydney) are race-car precise but they drive as such.
Check out the racks on the sportbikes.......people definetly dont have bikes down there for posing.....its all about practicality.....at least I didnt see any milk crates on the backs of any R6's.
I believe that was a library they were all parked in front of.
