Side tracked like a monkey

Well it happens a bit, I just got home from work and went out to the garage, had a look around and thought, this place is a pigsty and started cleaning it up, then saw the air filter for the XR sitting on the seat . Hmmm, there's something I didn't finish the other day. I had cleaned it but that was as far as it went, better get that sorted. So I turned on the radio and got busy. So I cleaned the screen, oiled the filter and got that installed and put the cover back on.

Then I remembered that I had a missing bolt in the right side cover. So I went to the tool box in search of a spare one. Whilst looking for a bolt I found some stickers that have been kicking around. Well the bolt was forgotten about and I proceeded putting some stickers on my tool box.



Bolt, what bolt



Is it just me?

I have a stack of stickers I am slowly putting on the back of my ute.

I thought it might look a bit strange if I turned up at work one day with the tail gate covered in stickers, so I put one on every couple of days as I leave the house.

My tool box gets the same treatment, but it gets them as I find them...

I got a new tyre put on a rim at Pablos the other day.
Left it in the back of the ute when I got home. I'll do that after dinner, thinks me.

Then yesterday driving to work, I hear a rattle in the back. What the?
Get to work, look in the back and see the tyre/rim.
Last night, again thought "I'll do that after dinner".
After dinner, walk out, unlock the shed. Walk in, see jacket hanging up from a tiedown from the roof (washed it last weekend, had it drying). So I put it away.
Then the same with the camelback, except had to do inside and get the bladder which was on the kitchen bench. Think to myself "my merino thermal is in the laundry, I'll get that whilst i'm inside". Go to laundry, get thermal.... see goggles and gloves still in bucket rinsing (four days after washing them). Hmm, wring them out, hang them up on clotheshorse in front of fireplace.... getting cold, light fire. No kindling, so go out and get kindling, return, light fire.
Think "wouldnt mind a can...." get can. Sit on couch, get ipad (sip can), look on here and the mag forum (oops), post a bit here and there. 'nother can.
And so on.
Get up to go to bed, find thermal on laundry bench on the way past....what the? thought I did that?.
Get undressed, into bed. Lay there, Mrs looks out window. "why is there a light on in the shed?"
Damn.
Get up, tip toe across damp grass to shed. And back again, as I left keys in house.
Light off, lock shed.

On the way to work this morning, rattle from the back of the ute as the tyre/rim moves.
F#%K.

Poppy, one thing we have in common is we both chat to Winna.
I blame that pr!ck. :)

Yea I got a bit sidetracked once

End of 2006 I finished my apprenticeship and thought it would be a good idea to go have a look at NZ because I've always wanted to go there so the plan was to stop in aus for a year before going to NZ for two years and then head back home to join the work force.
I landed in aus with $500 in my pocket so I had to get a job as soon as I could, first job I got was working on the river fixing hire boats so I needed to buy a bike to get to work.
After a bit of looking I found a dr650 and after a few weeks of riding it I headed off at the weekend to have an explore of kenilworth and after that ride I realised I needed more fuel range so I got on to google and every question I asked about a dr 650 advrider was the top answer so I joined advrider.
Any way after going on one or two rides and meeting some great people I find myself in the middle of starting a business doing some thing I love in a I awesome country.


I still haven't made it to NZ and I should probably tell the family and my old work I'm not coming home.
