G'day Richard.
You've been quiet lately.
You missed our "test" ride, in 38 degrees.

There's half a plan to wedge in a half dayer on the 17th. Hopefully the new springs will be here by then.

Hi Neil,

My business has expanded about 10 fold - got two freelancers working with me at the moment! Just bought new computer system (costs the same as a new bike ).

Weekends are busy collecting brownie points for NJ. Should be able to come out on the 17th though.

Bike is all serviced, new chain and sprockets, new tyres... lucky I'm busy

Cheers, Richard.

well I won't be on the newly completed outfit at Kev's on Sunday, as the laser cutter has shit itself ( been repaired now ) , and now has a backlog of work to do before cutting out my rear rack so chair won't be painted. so gunna strip the pod off it and repaint the chassis over the weekend, then fix the rubber insulating strips ready for installation next week.

No kiddy rides round the block for you guys. get a KTM recovery tow point fitted in the next few weeks and then away we gooooo .

Ross, I probly initiated it, but had my dates mixed up. I will go for a ride on Sunday after coffee with the beemets@ Catalano's.

Welcome to join us or meet up at Crystal brook BP at about 9h15. Quite a few that you will know from NJ.

I need a good ride as I haven't been on dirt for 5 weeks.

Spare a thought for the poms ...

I'm presently sitting at Heathrow Airport waiting for a flight back to Perth after a lightning two week trip over to the UK. Idle, I've picked up a copy of 'Adventure Bike Rider' magazine, and I've just read an article in it titled 'Green Laning - Get The Most Out Of Your Adventure Bike At Home'. The article comprises trip notes for two adventure rides - the first one is 3.3 miles in length, the second ride is a shorter 2.35 miles in length. Adventures must come in small doses here in England ....

First one must have been an overnighter
