Just wanted to pop in and say hello from Australia. I've just discovered the whole
concept of touring and can't believe I have been so ignorant for so long. I can't wait to
set myself up with a touring bike and head out into wide open spaces. Even though
I haven't done it yet I firmly believe it has to be the ultimate way to travel and see a country.
I think the touring forum is fantastic and extremely useful for newcomers like myself. My only problem
is I can't decide between a Trek520 and a Surly LHT. If that can be considered a problem.
