    Since I don't work, I'll leave it to you blokes.
    I've got one Zoom meeting, for the racing club, on Sunday 13th.
    Nothing else planned until 20th or so.

    Of mine. Can't leave a question hanging like that for you lot.

    First bitumen off in 30+ plus years. Bit of gravel rash and a bruised hip. Pretty happy I didn't slide into something solid so I'm saying I was lucky.:scratch

    Worried that there was no obvious cause eg gravel, diesel, sticks. I'll chuck the rear tyre away - trust issues.

    Shannons are giving me a new outfit for Xmas :wink:

    I had a read there. Seems like you blokes spend more time there than here.
    Separatists!

    Bit sad, Fay Dear. How the hell do you bust the start button on? As I typed that, I thought of all the RD switch gear missing the horn button. That's because they rarely kept the high 'bars for long and, once flats or ace or clip on 'bars were bunged on, the switch gear would bang the tank.

    Have I come clean about chucking the race bike down the road, again, at Winton the other week? At least I know why. The left carb cap came adrift mid turn and it just accelerated on to it's side. Why did the carb cap come adrift? I didn't check it a second time after doing a needle adjustment at Wakefield a month ago. Funny thing is that to make sure the slides are synch'd, I tighten the caps.
    Of course, the engine came out, I've flushed the crank, cleaned the top end and carbs. Waiting on new rings. The tank now needs a big dent repair. ce la vie.

    Impatient for the trip to Mt Gambier.


    How about Khancoban for lunch. Or even overnight.
    Troy, Dobbo, who else works? Nominate a couple of dates, please.
    I have to be in Canberra on Monday 21st for a quack and to see the wreckers.

    Met a bloke, from here, yesterday. He's suffering a bit of a mystery illness and considering an outfit for his 1150GS or maybe, a Urinal. He had a very similar attitude to Spyders that I've had and, I dare say, lots of us have. As in, "yeah nah". Or maybe just "nah".

    On the opposite side of the argument is the notion if riding a Spyder keeps you in contact with your mates, it has to be a better option than not. I did a riding test for a bloke, from Albury way, with paraplegia. It was his mates whom encouraged him, helped him in practical ways, to get onto a Spyder. One rode the thing to Wagga, another drove him up here and others just came along.

    Pity I failed him. So sad.

    Ray's a cunt.
