Never Leave A Rider In Distress

G’day

Many states in Australia have adopted lane filtering laws.

Each state has their own rules, and while much is similar, there are some differences in what you can and can’t do legally. Which in turn can cause some confusion for interstate riders.

What’s legal in Queensland may not be in New South Wales or Victoria.

She’s Buggered Mate.

G’day

Well, it appears my (t)rusty old computer has carked it.

The manufacturers smoke has escaped and I’m damned if i can get it back in.

So, as I’m not keen on publishing from my phone, I might be a bit quiet for a while ’till I can get it fixed or replaced.

Watch this space. 

Cheers

Never Mind The Bollock(ie)s.

G’day

I’ve come good on a threat I made about three weeks ago.

I don’t normally make threats, but on this occasion I saw no other way to deal with the problem. A tune-up was required.

Riders Stories.

G’day

You might have gleaned from my posts that I don’t give too much away about myself. Strewth*, it took me 2-1/2 years after starting this blog to fess up to my name!

I Can See Clearly

G’day

In last weeks post, Take The Long Way Home, I mentioned arguing with myself about why I don’t ride the scenic route home from work more often:

The days were too short during winter for this route (but there is a slightly shorter alternative I retorted, you’d be home before dark. Easy)

Take The Long Way Home.

G’day

When I worked on the Gold Coast I was lucky enough to have an early knock off on a Friday, usually around 14:30.

This allowed me to take any one of a number of routes home through the Hinterland.

Taken For Granted

G’day

Have you ever noticed how you tend to take your local area for granted?
