motorcycles, travel, friendship, respect… I may drift off into WTF-land at times so hang in there.

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.

City Under Lights.

G’day

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.

101

G’day

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.

Rider On The Storm.

G’day

Rain, Hail & Shine.

G’day

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).

That Stretch Of Road.

G’day

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.
