Sean Plunkett and fianc�e Kerry Harrison made the 4500km trip from Guyra to visit Ms Harrison’s family for five days before turning around to venture home on Tuesday.

The couple said they take regular trips with three-year-old spaniel cross Seamus and four-year-old red heeler Bella in the sidecar of the 2.3-litre Triumph Rocket 3 roadster but have never gone as far as Perth.

‘When you’re in a car you’re in airconditioned comfort, you’ve got music playing but the environment isn’t as much a part of the journey,’ Ms Harrison said.

‘Whereas on a bike you’re surrounded by everything; you can smell it, feel it, it’s a whole different experience.’
