Many years ago I met a guy named Murry who started riding motorcycles with some friends of mine and myself. Murray always embraced riding with an passion that was if it had existed in him his whole life.
At the time I had heard about the Australian Postie Bike Challenge, but had never really looked into undertaking due to other commitments in my life. Murray however, ran with it. That was over 6 years ago and he is about to embark on his 6th journey, this time from Hobart to Alice Springs. 3500km in 10 days on a Honda CT110. Spine rattling, ass numbing madness, I only wish I was heading out with him.
In the lead up to this event I have worked with Murray to produce a short documentary introducing him and to give us an insight into why he does it, what to expect and some of his past experiences, both positive and negative.

Please enjoy the video. Unfortunately I have no behind the scenes imagery or footage for this, as it was just me filming on the day. Except this instagram selfie. (@ohiggins)
