    A quick solo ride today. Brian was off on a Z1 ride so off I went for a wee blast on Big K. First time out with the new free adventure pack fitted, minus the long screen. I'll fit that after the 1k service is done. Left work a little earlier and headed off down through Halls Head following the coast:

    The Indian Ocean was flat calm today:

    If you look really closely you can see East Africa on the horizon:

    Then I wandered down to the estuary which was also flat calm:

    A phone call from Brian later and I headed up to Dwellingup on the off-chance to see if I could catch up with them. I would have gone home but realised I didn't have any house keys and Mrs Muz was out getting her hair done, which is not a quick process! So, up the hill I went still limited to 4000 rpm and a top speed of 90kph- I am so looking forward to getting this first service done!
    Anyway, got to the Blue Wren and met a bloke on a BMW of some kind who came over to chat about the KLR. I think he saw me struggling to get off the thing and felt sorry for me being on my own. We exchanged pleasantries as you do and he headed off into the distance. Nice fella, but he was much shorter than me so I doubt he would enjoy the trials of mounting and dismounting Big K.
    I had a quick look to see if Brian was in but couldn't spot any shiny heads inside. I checked the parking area and lo and behold 2 nice sparkly 1970s Kawasakis. I went in and found Brian and Ross ( another Z1 master) sitting under a tree at the back of the cafe.
    Coffee and pie ordered I joined them for a bit of chat, and then we headed back down the hill via North Spur Road, me following rigidly sticking to my 4000rpm limit- Grrrrr! Never mind. A great run and the weather was fantastic. It's always more comfortable when it cools down a little. I think 2 weeks and I'll be free of the running in shackles. Can't wait!
    Oh, I was talking crap about being able to see Africa. It's thousands of miles away Ffs, but if you fell in the water here and the current took you due west, and if you managed to avoid being eaten by sharks eventually you would end up there.

    a good quick ride and a bit cooler than usual. My thermal lining is going back in for sure.

    Roll on summer days!

    I put the lining back in last week! Wish I'd been there mate. Looked like a good day out and I bet the Blue Wren sold many pies! Those Goldwings look very comfortable!

    Skies clear, although its pretty cold and there is a bit of frost this morning. Ride is on I think.

    Our destination:
    [​IMG]

    Cape Leeuwin, the south west tip of Australia, where the Indian and Great Southern Oceans meet! Should be about 4 hours each way with lots of interesting stuff in between. Just the job for Wee I reckon.

    Well, the last day of Autunm arrived and it didn't disappoint. Leaving home at 8.00 am after packing the kids off to school, it was bloody freezing. Approx 2 degrees Celsius and not fair weathered biker compatible at all. I headed over to Brian's house full of excitement as I hadn't been on a decent run for quite some time due to weather and family commitments, mainly my son's soccer matches every Sunday morning. However, a work free day and it was on. Wee sounded great after her recent oil change and looked resplendent with her new led front indicators.

    About 20 mins later I arrived at Brian's, frozen! I couldn't feel my fingers even though I was wearing 2 pairs of gloves. Luckily for me Brian has a very lovely considerate wife who made me a nice hot cuppa and provided a heat pack to warm my frozen digits.

    The sun was starting to come up so I left my gloves in full sun in an attempt to warm them up prior to setting off. It seemed to work, and luckily the temperature rises quite quickly here when the sun rises so the run down to Busselton was quite pleasant. We made good time and when we reached it was just the right time for coffee and cake at the foreshore.

    The main attraction at Busselton is the jetty which stretches out almost 2km into the sea. It's very impressive but a long walk out to the end which we unfortunately didn't have time to complete:

    Busselton is a popular holiday destination in Western Australia, mainly due to it's shallow water and stunning beaches:

    <a href="http://s1158.photobucket.com/user/rodmuzwa/media/Augusta%20Run%20May%2013/DSCF0226_zps9190ede5.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1158.photobucket.com/albums/p601/rodmuzwa/Augusta%20Run%20May%2013/DSCF0226_zps9190ede5.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo DSCF0226_zps9190ede5.jpg"/></a>

    Then it was off to Yallingup which is a popular surfing spot as it has bigger waves than the sheltered beaches of Busselton and other spots in Geographe Bay. Yallingup is stunning but quite windswept.

    The road down to Yalingup:

    Crazy surfers, there are lots of Great White Sharks out there and this area is well known for shark attacks:

    Brian having just figured out his battery was dead:

    No time for coffee here as we wanted to get to Cape Leeuwin so a push start for Brian and off we went down Caves Road and the hundred or so kms to Augusta. A great run although we got a little bit of rain on this leg.

    A quick bite to eat at Augusta which is the town at the South West tip of this great country. Pepper steak pie for me and bacon sarnie and chicken pie for Brian (he's a growing lad!). Unfortunately for him he found a rather large bone in his pie which is never a good thing, so if you ever got to the Augusta bakery beware the chicken pies! My steak and pepper was great!

    On to Cape Leeuwin which is only about 5 kms out of the town:

    Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse:

    Brian freezing his b*ll*cks off at the south west tip of Oz:

    Then it was off home. No stops except for a leg stretch at Myalup services and home for 5.45 pm.

    A great run but it did take a while to thaw out after!

    Great write up, Rod! Those pix are hard to beat and they really catch the overall chilly status of the day. It was truly a nad shriveller! Great day out and glad we went after all. It really is always good to be out. New battery is ordered as the original had shat itself as first thought. Bloody hell. I am off to Jarrahdale shortly to collect a mint white DR650 tank I bought on eBay last night - I just need to track a white rear fender and the mighty DR can be Snow White one day and Big Bird the next!

    Old Kwak ride in the morning with a pie along the way - happy days.

    bikes and Yallingup

    Nice day today so got out for a quick gravel run. Met Brian on his mighty DR at Dome Pinjarra then off up North Spur after a quick coffee. I was on Special K today as I needed to give her a blast on gravel. From North Spur it was on to Scarp Road where we found a cracking little spot called Oakley Dam:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    From there it was on to Dwellingup where I found to my horror that the Blue Wren had sold out of pies! Damn it! Gutted I was. Not to worry, I survived. While there we were told that a biker had come off the road on one of the bends on Del Park Rd and collided with a tree. Only one winner unfortunately but thankfully the rider is still with us but with some serious leg injuries. Could have been much worse. Don't know the rider involved but if you read this best wishes to you! So, back down the hill home was a bit of a nightmare. Setting sun as we headed west was seriously blinding and made it difficult to see the bends in the road. Very conservative riding got us home safely though! A great ride as always and nice to test Special K on the gravel. She is certainly easier and more forgiving than Wee Strom on the slippery stuff! Brian and Mighty DR performed admirably as always! Always good to get out and it's nice to blow the cobwebs off after a shitty couple of weeks at work! As they used to say in the North of Scotland, stay between the dykes and shiny side up folks!

    Rod and I got some spannering in first thing - new crash bars for the special K and a great job they are, too. Not too bad to fit and SW Mototech as good as ever on quality, fit and finish. Good team work on the fitting and bacon rolls with HP went down very well, I must say. A big thanks to Rod and Mrs Rod for a fine brekky!

    After the hard work was done we had to do a test ride so off we went. Scarp Road for the fire track section and it was great. It was a bit cool but a really good ride. The bikes were on song and the boys did a bit better than last time. I find gravel a bit of a challenge but I am getting better so all good there. Rod was on track and his new crash bars looked mint and also gave a bit of peace of mind - it all helps.

    Onto Dwellingup for the usual pie and a quick chat with Dave and Shelly at the Blue Wren. Good food, good company and good people. Make sure you drop by if you are up that way.

    The spin home was a quick fang down Nanga Road and a bit of dirt that I have had my eye on for a few months now. It was a blast and some pix are below. It was good to be out as always and thanks to Rod for a great day.

    Hope you like the scenery - a bit of sad sight but very dramatic land when you are on it.

    Ha ha, you beat me to it Brian! The time it took me to work out how to upload that video clip on to YouTube. Not to worry, I think I might have it figured out now so might manage some more video uploads if we come across anything interesting!

    A great day. The riding was awesome. Personally I prefer it when it's a bit cooler and we have had a bit of rain on the dirt and the gravel. Makes it a little bit stickier and a lot less dusty!

    It was funny comparing the bikes yesterday. The DR and KLR are totally different animals. The KLR is much more refined and the DR is very much an up and at 'em bike. If they were women you would definitely have to wine and dine the KLR, maybe take her to a movie or two, confess your undying love for her and maybe, only maybe then she would let you steal a kiss. With the DR I reckon you'd only have to buy her a beer and she'd be writhing about on top of you in the sack!

    Different breeds but both excellent in their own right.

    there were a few spare pennies lying around so the 'tinternet' was hit!

    my fat fingers did some spending and just one week later a box of beautiful bits landed from the good ol' US of A

    Well, Sunday was out this week and Sat morning Brian had a run with his fellow Zed Heads so Sat arvo (afternoon) it was. The usual meet for coffee at the local Dome Coffee Shop around 1 and we were off again. No plan to go anywhere particular as the weather had been quite changeable but Saturday turned out to be quite warm, in the low 20s I believe. Brian has a new business venture as he is very much a tycoon in waiting so off we went looking at possible sites the venture can call home. All local stuff. Then a quick blast out to Nambeelup to look at some newly released rural residential building lots. Found a little bit of gravel to ride and some locals came over for a chat. Pleasant bunch they were too!

    We would have have gone further up the gravel but a big bastard Roo hopped out in front of Brian and after my experience you might have read about earlier in the blog, I was unwilling to go any further. They are cute animals but very stupid and extremely dangerous for bikers.

    In to North Dandalup for coffee and sausage rolls and home by 5pm. Another mini adventure in Western Australia. Many many more to come!

    If only it was light rain. It's been pissing down all week and its one of the wettest Augusts on record, which is great for the dams but not so good for riding my bikes. Had to take the car to work all week! The local farmers are still complaining though. Apparently the rain came too late for their crops! Last year the rain came too early for them! Must be shit to be a farmer. It seems nothing ever goes their way!
    Anyway, more importantly, I will be riding this weekend, come rain, hail or shine. If it snows I'll have a re-think but as it has never snowed here since records began and most Western Australians wouldn't know snow if it bit them on the arse I reckon I'm probably pretty safe on that score!
    It's Saturday, I'm not working and I live in a fantastic part of the planet so no reason not to be smiling. I love weekends!

    The Muzz and I were needing some thumper action - no rain so a few hours were had around the Dwellingup firetrails. We were more ambitious today and found our feet a bit more. I found my feet a bit too much but I'll come back to that.

    Special K and the Mighty were selected and off we went.

    One part looked like this

    The Muzz will post my fail heading uphill - too slow and it all started to go wrong. Oh the shame of it - the 'get off and push' - bloody hell. The Muzz stepped in and helped and then flew up with no dramas. Bugger!

    Great spin and we survived - all good this end. Great ride from the Muzz and I will do better next time!
