    Finished work and thought that a quick ride would be good - and it was!

    A few pix in a few new spots I hope - the mighty DR is running really well

    Never a truer statement I must say

    Lots of boats hitting the water this weekend

    Again - never a truer statement

    two roos in the background - can you spot them?

    my fat head - I think this is called a 'selfy'

    shadows are getting a tad longer I think

    I have a Z ride lined up for Sunday morning - about 400km in great country along the Blackwood River. The DR has earned a rest I think!

    Nice ride around Perth on Australia Day Exile750, it brought back a few memories of previous holidays in the West a few years ago, also I like the windshield on the DRZ where did you get it? as I'm riding the same, cheers

    It was a good day for sure. The PO put the screen on and it is has nothing on it to identify what make it is. It works pretty well and it takes the edge off. I got out again this evening - great time to ride.

    I even got a bit arty at the end

    I am hitting a country road tomorrow with a mate. It's an old Z fest in the morning and I should get some cool pix happening. I hope you can get out for a ride and that the skies are blue for you over there.

    The Mighty DR is looking fine mate. You will love the roads out here in Kulin and Wave Rock is definitely a must see. Hopefully we can sneak the bikes up there for some kodak moments. Great pics as usual. Wish I had been out!

    It has been great and the roads have been quiet. The DR is on song and all good there. I have a few plans for it but nothing too urgent or major. I did a 300 miler today on 74Z to Nannup via Balingup and it was mint. Pix to follow and maybe a sneaky ride for us at some point, mate! Talk to you soon and looking forward to your news.

    Happy Birthday, mate and I hope the ride is a good one.

    I will be posting some more pix in the next few days. Do I see a KZ900 in your past? I did a 300 miler on my 74 Z1A today - what a blast.

    All the best.
