    I was actually sitting on the ground against a tree eating strawberries and cream.. such is the level of worry for a Yamaha rider.

    Back from 4 weeks in Blighty. How green is it over there! Bit of a shock coming back here and seeing everything brown and crisp. No more water added to my tanks. First time in 5 years I will have to transfer from another tank.

    Wales was full of 1200GS Beemers and was very jealous. Hopefully will get a ride in before things heat up. Back to work tomorrow but will be doing 6 day weeks until the end of November so any ride will be a sunday only.

    Maybe a Hunter group ride at some stage over the next month or two for people to put a face to an avatar?

    Well, after selling the Beemer and having the trailie pinched decided to keep it cheap and simple for the time being.

    Picked this up today.

    ^ Grand dad's axe . Will do everything without being great at anything . Some love 'em , some think they are boring . Only way to find out which camp you are in is to own one .

    Yarramalong, Murray's Run to Laguna for breaky then over Yengo, Commision to Jerry's Plains for a beer then slab to Laguna and home via Watoes.
    All in all I reckon she'll do the trick. It's no weapon but it's enjoyable.

    Is there any interest in a meet and greet ride?
    Im sure we could work out a loop or a ride for central coast and newie crew to perhaps meet centrally for a weekend ride?

    I'm keen to ride somewhere new now I've got a bike with decent range.
