    To beak, or not to beak, that is the question.....

    But after a trip to pick up my wife's car to take it in for a recall the owner of a bike shop saw my bike and chased me down to tell me he had a left rear side panel, so now I have it...

    I moved them so I could get the mower out.

    I did try and seal the leaking tyre on my 1190. Fairly sure it was unsuccessful. Will see in the morning.

    Unexpected leave pass, nice loop on the beaked one. Mt Glorious, past the dams around to Woodford and up Mt Mee all the while hoping my recording of the last hour or so of Bathurst is successful. Also hoping the Fords didn’t use up all their luck in qualifying (a few too many Holden’s in the top 10 for my liking). Photo half way up one of my favourite pieces of road, just a shame it’s so short.

    A nice day out with my Brother visiting from NZ.
    Up to Esk,Kilcoy, Woodford, Mt Mee, Mt Glorious back to Esk and home to Toowoomba.
    Good weather, good riding.
    I did have to borrow @Dukehunt 1190 for the trip.
    Keep it quiet ...
    He won't notice.
