    Just be careful if you let one of your buddies over there ride your bike... explain to them that it's from Australia so it's right hand drive... :evil

    Its not the drive side that is an issue, its the bike wanting to always to be tits up since it is on the wrong (the UP direction) side of the planet which it isn't used to yet.

    With friends like these what kind of rides and ride reports are going on down on the underside of the planet?

    :huh

    Hairy holes, tits........etc etc

    This might have to become its own thread in Jo Mamma just due to content of the comments.

    Last night, met Hodgo at Shade's Oceanfront Bar for a couple of frothies...then South Beach Bar & Grille and turned him onto fish tacos....he said not something he would've normally ordered, but thought they were really good !

    May have talked him into Alaska to do the Dalton Hwy to Prudhoe Bay.

    We'll go out again tonight, then Thursday night taking him to meet my riding buddies that I've known and been riding with for 20 years.

    Got a few pix, but can't post right now.

    Its a good thing i know Seano & Wez personally otherwise i would have to throw a cow in front of Wezs next trip & a tree in front of Seanos next trip. But they might not need too much help with that.

    I suppose i had better lift the subject here out of the gutter.

    Well caught up with Elephant 900 Rad. Top bloke Randy. We had a couple of light ales and i managed to get in trouble from a nice lady sitting behind me in the bar when i yelled out to Randy "Exactly" what Seano had posted in this thread.

    Apparently there were ladies present & and that sort of comment was not nice when they were present.

    So i road down the coast road from LA. Pretty good scenery.

    [​IMG]
    Traffic in LA is insane. I was plodding along at 80mph & was being passed by every mad fucker in a cage. So the norm is 120kph plus.
    [​IMG]
    Few nice spots along here. I was really enjoying all the sweet smells of Suncream lotion & the nice views of the "Big Ol Titties" that went with that.

    Plus all the RV owners with their beach camp fires burning. Lots of different experiences. Including young guys hangging out the windows of cars taking photos of me & yelling & giving me the thumbs up. Yelling out KTM yeaaah.

    It was a little like the gold coast or sunshine coast in OZ but drier.
