falling off lots is an indication that you are having fun

Half way between Napier and Wairoa I think. It's a shitty peice of road, but a bit different to the Devils Staircase. The Staircase doesn't quite get as much traffic.

I suspect that the Devils Staircase is a lot safer.

I've seen some completely moronic driving (people passing on blind corners etc - impatient arseholes) on the road between Wairoa and Napier.

Would be a great run on a bike if you could get rid of the cars and trucks

thats it, tight down hill hair pin that you dont want to hit under breaking with nude front tire on trace oil patch right on the corner left by some stinking stock truck . Ironically only damage (apart from destroyed ADV trow and jacket - friction burnt from sliding accross the road) was a sore "elbow" which still plays up in bad weather...dang nabit

yes they are like a plague at this time of year
at least with there being so many it doesnt seem to matter if you use the odd one for traction
I'm tempted to put a sign half way up the staircase
"Private Property - if you aint got an engine then f*ck off"

not sure if this is 'off topic' or just 'off'

walked past swmbo's Womans Weekly this morning
had a picture of Alison Mau and Karleen Edmonds announcing their engagement

This joke imedaitely came to mind...

The lesbians next door asked what what I would like for my birthday. I was quite surprised when they gave me a Rolex. It was very nice of them, but I think they misunderstood me when I said, I wanna watch.

What do you call a bowl of tuna on a lesbian's coffee table?
