    Nor I - I have to stand courtside & scream at the refs as I coach my daughters miniball team (Basketball) Fri nites. Have you guys noticed it's always the opposition that gets away with murder...

    Had a tetanus shot yesterday, the body is reacting a bit today. Quite pleased I decided not to do the cyclocross race. Would have damn near killed me.

    Did a bit of an adventure ride today. Ended up on Rosedale Rd by mistake, two-up on the VFR :lol3 Was a tad slippery in places, the front end had one good waggle through a few bike lengths of deep mud, but otherwise all good. :eek1

    Bloody cold though!

    I nearly came through there on Sat. Tom was with me on the brick, so I thought it best not to, besides ... the 800's looking real sharp after a sever cleaning :D
    Should do a roadie at some stage ?

    Hi guys
    Someone has just asked me how to get back to Nelson from St Arnaud - not the highway

    Take tarseal on Korere Tophouse Rd, right turn into Blue Glen Rd, hook up onto Kings Ridge, follow it all way back to bottom of the hill, back on seal for 4 km, right into Smiths Rd, Reays Hill rd, cut through onto Spooner Tops and then Highway 6 home from Belgrove.
    Way more fun, but you'll need a good map or GPS to navigate your way through that lot.:evil Go on, you know you want to.
