    A few good rides happening up this way this time of year. Conditions are pretty good for dirt and MTB Sam. I'm always up for a fang on a machine with 2 wheels, let me know if you get to the area again.

    I haven't been able to ride as much as I would like over the past few weeks, I am a carer for my dad as he is in late-stage cancer and any free time I have had recently has been put towards building a new shed:

    That isn't good news Tori.

    Karen and I have been in S.A. visiting our last remaining parents/ step -parents. They are both in their mid 90s and travelling O.K. physically , not so good on the mental side.

    We did 10 days of child minding while daughter #2 attended Uni S.A. for her practical nurse training. It seems so much more tiring doing this stuff than it did 30 years ago. I think I need a nanna nap today!

    Rain!!!!!!

    I am glad I kept the trailer sailer in the shed. Another 39 days and I reckon we might be using it to survive.

    Geelong. My son-in-law picked up a near new SR400 Yamaha to learn on today. He needed a helmet so we went to PS and while I was there I got to touch a new 800. Nice but I think I prefer the graphics of the gen2. I saw a AT super tanker as well. The graphics are rather garish for my taste. The new V-stroms look strange. I was impressed with the Moto Guzzis and the classic Triumph roadies.
