    Something completely different for an Aussie Summer

    The adventure can be as close as your driveway or even just getting out the door with the balancing act required at times

    :bow (yes dear!... :snore no dear! ... :snore just going to the shops dear... :evil )

    Always well worth taking the camera ...you will never know when a shot comes up.

    ie went for a short cool-air sunrise ride this morning before the 39C kicks in.

    Well!.... just cruising down the freeway about to turn off at Callington for a bit of dirt when... in I went.............."thick pea soup fog" misting visor... icy damp air felt like below 10C at times. :vardy

    Could you believe it.............. high 30C's all week :knary then this:

    Still fun though, but I was glad to be off the freeway on a bike in that stuff.

    One hour later I was riding down an English Cornwall Lane ................................all in 2 hours.

    That's what I think the adventure riding pleasure is all about:wings

    Then to finish off with this free flowing road to dust off the cobwebs;

    The perfect morning ride

    We had 44 degrees C on Boxing day in Perth and today is humid and overcast with a bit of very light drizzle.

    First day back at work after the Festive break, nice to see your pics. :thumb
