Yeah, when I test rode one of those, the vibration gave me the shits too...
Peppermint trees are very common around the south coast & are heavily in flower this year.
You must have ridden the same bike. The one in the photo will rattle your fillings out and detach your retinas after 10 minutes.
Warm and windy in the back yard today
Dry-Feet-Run....each to their own.
From my recent visit to Dumbleyung. The pics are of the memorial to commemorate Donald Campbell's Breaking the world water speed record (at 3.43pm on 31st December) in 1964 on Dumbleyung Lake at 276.33 mph (444.71 kph).
Dumbleyung Lake is now predominantly dry more often than not, however, it is still a stunning and fascinating spot that is home to birds and other wildlife. It fills up every few years and has a rich natural and cultural history. A unique granite memorial to Campbell’s achievement was created by the local community and placed on nearby Pussycat Hill. The memorial allows the sun to shine through an aperture at the exact moment of the record on December 31st each year, projecting a sun-ray onto a scale brass plaque of the Bluebird on the lake.
The hole is drilled through the WA shaped rock just above the plaque, the dot at lower left is where Dumbleyung is located.
I just learned from that website that the world water speed record has an 85% mortality rate.
Made it up onto Eksdale Rd through Winburndale Nature Reserve and around to Palmers Oaky on Sunday.
It was a bit ace.
This is from a lookout down towards what I think is an area a bit south of the Limekilns Cherry Farm.
And the ground covers around Palmers Oaky that have been exposed by the fires look blooming marvellous, to steal a term. My photo does not do it justice.
Brayshaw's hut , Bobayan Rd
Harolds Cross - but how could I be, cruising on a gorgeous day?
Only a kilometre or so left to seal between Braidwood and Nerriga now.
Another hill pretending to be mountain. Mount Nelson.
That's looking across to Lauderdale/ Sandford?
Straining the neck I think I can even see one of my favs, Cremorne.
Bummer they stopped access to the beach around the head ( bogged an FJ12 at high tide there many moons ago
Yes, looking across to Tranmere / Lauderdale. The signal station was a part of a relay to Port Arthur in the convict era. If some body escaped from Port Arthur. Up go the flags and the command in Hobart who know about the breakout.
went thru wombeyan caves to see if it open or not
going mittagong to taralga all the way

rivers flowing well
was a ktm 790 maybe went past but i was in no hurry and wouldnt have kept up anyway
Ya can't get much more Australian than that.
And here's the view from the Longdrop. Ahh the serenity.
Taking pics of some local bushes in flower when I attempted (unsuccessfully) to do some important research at the same time. I tried to get some real close ups of bees so I could work out the metric equivalent for the measurement "a bee's dick". The bees weren't very cooperative...
Mate, they're female bees...
Then there's an even smaller measurement, a bee's clit.
You know, I never thought about that. I'm obviously too inducted into the patriarchy of our society, thinking that the important workers must be male (I'll stop now before I feel sick)...
I've never been instructed to do anything to tolerances finer than 'a bee's dick' so am unfamiliar the measurement you mention. And being a male, apparently I'd have trouble finding it anyway.
