Sydney

Many years ago I staye d at the CB Hotel in downtown Sydney. Even I would like to know if this hotel still exists. It was a nice older hotel and was ideal for travellers on a budget like us motorcyclists and backpackers. An excellent place to spend a week as you come in jet-lagged and need to adjust. The tourist assist service at the airport pointed it out to me.Good value. This was in 1983 and I bought a bike at Goulburn
Motorcycles, a Yamaha dealership in the city.Would love to do it again.
