    All my bikes are in pieces at the moment and the more I try to put them back together the more pieces seem to come off them, I even managed to smash a fairing in half without leaving the basement! Big effort going in this week though.

    I saw a "well used" dommie heading south on SH1 just south of Hampton Downs on Sunday, and he was making more serious progress than I was prepared to chance, given the number of cameras and cops that were on the road.

    I think this is called 'Mission Creep'.

    My understanding of it is, that you start to do something and then find that while you're there, you might as well do the next thing that you find. I think the best example of this would have to be turn of the century villas with sarking and totara piles.

    Probably those annoying non user serviceable ones that you find deep inside the dishwasher after spending all afternoon getting it out and the panels off.

    Had a mate smashed his ankle playing touch years ago and had it plated up. Gave him trouble a few years later and I have seen the X-rays.

    Plate on his tibia (I think) with the top screw, which was about half way up his lower leg, missing. Fkn big stray screw lying right down in the arch of his foot. Must have travelled about 400mm inside his leg. They opened him up and took all the metal out.

    Only guy I have ever known with a screw loose and the photographic evidence to prove it.


    Motu,
    I was out Nikau way on the 29th as well with the wife on the back. All those guys standing on the pegs went past me heading north, about 12km south of Port Waikato.
    Must have missed you at the café by about 15 minutes.
