New bike

My wife bought a new racing bicycle yesterday. If she wear those tight lycra nicks I might need reviving. CPR is something we should all know how to do.

We have a sat phone now, but it wont accept 000 calls. You have to call the police switchboard.
The Green Triangle Enduro Club owns the sat phone, and the unit will be available for hire for $50 a week. The understanding is that it must be returned in good condiiton or replaced at your cost. Use for "emergency only" deal and hope that you won't need it.

Hey, you have to find me first and the way you pulled out those maps last time, I'd say you'd need my help at same stage.

I won't be there for the Cancer ride, but I'll join in for the ride James Cook is organising.

Technolgy is out dated and paper maps are back in my friend. Either then i've seen gps pulled out and the users still didn't know where they were going .
But don't worry Miermoto, there's always another day to ride.

When it comes to technology, the problem is usually between the keyboard and the chair...

It Lives!!!!

Amazingly she lives! Pulled the sides, seat, tank, light shroud and right hand guard to get the throttle cables replaced. put the new one in and put it all back together again and she even started!

Woohoo....I didn't kill her

Haven't been for a ride yet, I'll do that tomorrow to test it out but the throttle response is a hell of a lot nicer. I'm glad I did replace it, the throttle cable was stuffed and the return cable had started burring too.

mmmmmm ride therapy needed......

With the engine running, turn the handlebars from lock to lock and listen to see if the engine revs rise......


Lots of ride therapy next weekend.......Cancer Ride. Even if you can't make the whole thing, meet us at Mt Cole or even in the Grampians to ride back to Hamilton..........oh and riding to Adelaide and back Mon - Wed.

Wish I could make next weekend's ride but I have family commitments. My Mum would be very disappointed if I was off galavanting around the country side when she was in town

Quiet.

I thought i should post something, even though i have nothing to post because i've been busy with organising myself for the cancer ride.
SW leg sounds to be going along strong and can't wait for the SA leg, which the first section to Narcoorte is my home ground, well some of it.
For the ride to Adelaide, well bring it on.
