Australia consists of 6 states and 2 Territories. There are 5 states on
the Australian mainland and the island state of Tasmania.
Further more, there are 2 places on the mainland, named after states in
Kentucky in New South Wales (NSW) and Texas in Queensland (QLD).
Kentucky and Texas are states in their own right, but not here in

The aim of these rides is to visit Kentucky and Texas and obviously the
states they are in. Hence, the smallest IBA certifiable ride would
be a SS1600, visiting Kentucky in NSW and Texas in QLD, making it a "4

Special certificates has been designed here in Australia by Skidoo, so

All that is left now, is for you to go and have some fun on these
Australian specific rides.

DBR - Dated Business Receipt
A DBR is a machine generated receipt with the date, time and LOCATION

Your official time is determined by the starting
and ending receipts. PLEASE check these documents and make sure
the clock and date is correct!
is strongly recommended but not
If you cannot get a receipt you must take a
picture, including your motorcycle, to PROVE you were in the
town. Remember it is YOUR responsibility to prove you did the
ride. Spotwalla goes a long
way towards this proof.
