Santa sneaks me nice parts during the year, if I promise not to tell anyone else. He did bring me a pair of GS gloves, but I 'll need to swap them over.

Last year I asked for slim waist and a full wallet, he got that mixed up as well.

We got a kitten

My daughter's partner went home to feed their cats, and came back with a ginger kitten. Usual story around here - a tenant moves, and leaves an un neutered cat behind. They were in Aussie for a week, and the mother has been living under the house, now she has moved and left the runt behind. Looks like they are taking him on, so now they have three saved cats.

Santa couldn't afford tyres for everyone, so I missed out....but got a K&N filter instead.

Better start saving for a new engine then, those things only stop large rocks.

Yep, all part of the plan - I'm doing a UOA before and after to prove it once and for all. Although all air filters, paper, foam or fabric get better with some dirt in them, the K&N needs more dirt to improve than paper, so maybe a 2nd UOA will be needed.

Yep check out the nelson ride outs on KB. there were a few of us down there. It is run on the roads around the warehouses & workshops next to the port.
Usually I go there & hear the roar of thunder & think "yeah i could do this" then I see them wedged into turn one & get real. This year I noticed that the cornering of the mid - back markers in the F3 & classics wasn't particularly death defying so I had a brief Hmmmm moment.

kane wasn't there sadly. bernard Ryan had his grunty guzzi & kevin scruffy triumph rider broke his ankle early on which was a pity. You should book it in. Unfortunately I won't be here next xmas otherwise you would have had a pit hand & accom etc already sorted.
