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.

A New Stable Mate.

G’day

You might remember back in early July, The Bar Tender did his motorcycle training with Noel out at Q-Ride Redlands.

Getting his motorcycle licence was something he’d been wanting to do for a very long time; I guess it was inevitable seeing as he has been exposed to bikes all of his life.

Hey You With The Funny Head!

G’day

It’s true, I have a funny head.

As a result, I have a great deal of difficulty finding a helmet that’s comfortable. One that I can actually get my head into, and one that doesn’t give me a headache after 10 minutes.

Lessons Learned.

G’day

Well, The Pillion and I returned home to Brisbane from our little junket to the Western Suburbs of Sydney (Penrith) at 16:30 on Sunday. In all, we covered 2259km (1403 mi), much of it was done on the weekend of the 8th & 9th then the 15th & 16th for the return trip.

It’s Only Flat On The Bottom.

G’day

A few weeks ago I was riding with one of my mates when he got a puncture. We were miles from anywhere and mobile phone coverage was patchy at best. So we were kinda stuck.

Let me spear off on a tangent for a sec.

To Group Or Not To Group. What’s The Question?

G’day

Last century, my pillion chose to hang up her jacket and lid, reasoning that if something unforeseen was to happen, at least Search, Bash & Destroy would have one parent to see them through ’till they were old enough to look after themselves. I respect that, and I’m sure some of you have made similar decisions.

Motorcycle Leathers – All You Need To Know

G’day

I bought a Stagg leather jacket last century… 1990 I think.

Stagg Leather Goods^ are an Australian company renowned for their quality products, only Walden Miller, another Australian company, are considered to be as good or better.

Throttle Snatch

G’day

My bikes have always used carburetors for their fuel delivery.

My current bike however, uses fuel injection. This in itself is not a bad thing; better fuel delivery, economy… the list goes on.

Stone

G’day

I had a few inquiries about the movie Stone (1974) since this post.

This low-budget Australian film produced and directed by Sandy Harbutt was controversial in its day due to its nudity, strong language and violent themes, receiving an “R” rating from the censors.
