I Ride To Rediscover The Part Of Myself Lost To Just "Existing".


Attitude Adjustment.


In recent years, Queensland (QLD) has seen a steady decline in the number of riders killed.

Since 2006, statistics held by the QLD Guv’mint show that from 2006 to 2011 the fatality rate for motorcyclists dropped from 5.26 to 2.90 per 10,000 riders. This was despite a 40% increase in motorcycle registrations for the same period.

Support The Little Guys.


In the past when The Pillion and I have traveled and needed somewhere to stay for the night, we usually checked into one of those big chain motels. You know the ones, Best Western, Golden 4 or something similar.

The Plan.


The Pillion and I haven’t been out on the bike together in months because of the damage from that knock over on February 17 I told you about a few weeks ago.

Yes, Bluey is still ride-able, solo, but the pillion peg on the off side was damaged in the fall and along with the hairline crack in the pillion peg hanger, it has made it unsafe to have anyone on the back.

Happily, I’m told all the parts will be in by the time you read this and Bluey will be as good as new in no time.

Stop Me If You’ve Heard This One Before…


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.

All Has Been Revealed.


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.

Shall We Play A Game.


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.

Mt Tamborine.


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.
