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.
Its’s not often I head in to the city for a night of fun and frivolity, but when I do, I take photos.
Allow me to introduce you to Brisbane; my adopted home town.
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.
On Thursday, November 27, 2104, Brisbane was hit with one of the worst storms in 10 years (ABC News Link). Even though I left work a little early to try to miss it, I still managed to catch a few drops and a puff of wind.
I guess I’m one of the lucky ones, I mean, living in the sub-tropics I can ride all year round.
It can get cool in winter, with some mornings getting down to -5°C (23°F) out towards the west of Brisbane, but usually it only gets down to 1°C or 2°C (34°F to 36°F) and once the sun starts to climb, the days can top out at a balmy 23°C (73°F).
It’s been a long while since I’ve ridden the full 60km (37mi) stretch of winding black top between The Gap and “The T” at Splityard Dam.
As much as I love The Mt Nebo Road and the Northbrook Parkway, and even though I live not far from the mid-point, I tend to avoid it like the plague. I guess it’s because I can’t get out for a decent ride on a weekday when its quiet, and am restricted to weekends when tourists, boy racers and popo abound.
