Stop me if you’ve heard this one before…
A bloke parks his bike 1.5m (5 feet) behind a car, an SUV, in a quiet street.
I have to be honest, when I posted up Shall We Play A Game I thought I hadn’t left enough clues for you and it was going to be too hard to figure out my name. Happily, I needn’t have worried, as in the end the three clues I left were enough to lead the winner to the answer.
Remember this bit from last weeks post?
“One thing I remember consciously doing when I started this blog, was that I wanted to use a pseudonym. I don’t know why I did that; fear of failure maybe?”
Or this chest-nut.
“In fact, the day may come when I appear in a photo without the helmet; I probably won’t own up to it, but I’ll be there. Just look for the bloke that doesn’t smile a lot.”
I’ve been thinking a bit about these two paragraphs quite a bit over the past week or so. During that time, Brandy over at Trobairitz Tablet made a comment that more-or-less crossed the T’s and dotted the I’s, so to speak.
Last week after my Mt Tamborine post went up, I realised that The Experimental Ghost had reached a milestone. Truth be told, I didn’t realise anything, I got a message from WordPress congratulating me about it.
100 posts isn’t a lot in the scheme of things, especially when you compare it to other bloggers who write two or three times a week or more.
One of my favorite ride destinations is Mt Tamborine south of Brisbane. There are so many routes I can take that I never get bored with going there.
There’s the run from Oxenford up to Eagle Heights, which is an easy ride with lots of nice scenery (See map). Or via Henri Robert Drive (see map); this road can be steep at times and has some sharp corners too, but is worth the ride if you like a challenge.
Back on July 1st, 2014 the New South Wales (NSW) State Guv’mint amended their traffic act to specifically define motorcycle lane filtering and lane splitting.
Previously there was no specific rules outlawing the practice of lane filtering, but popo frowned upon the manoeuvre and usually booked you for failing to keep within a defined lane or some other such thing.
Back on January 14 I wrote about pre-ordering a set of SHAD (SH36) hard cases and frames to replace some soft panniers that had failed after only 1200 km (745 mi).
Clicky here if you’d like to refresh your memory.
Last Tuesday I got a text from my local motorcycle accessories emporium advising me the hard cases had arrived.
