A Chookie in the Watagans

What again? Yeah nice pun Lucky. Anyhoo Nige and Lucky headed off to the hills for a nice dirt ride on Sunday. Mohawk was an early withdrawal suffering a flat rear tyre. Etiquette dictates that good friends and long time mates would wait with him till the NRMA arrived. We didn’t and both of us […]

Superbikes Anyone?

Some time ago noises were made by some Niges about riding down to the WSB on 24th ~ 26th February. Anyone still interested?

Leaving Thursday afternoon (23rd Feb) and returning on Tuesday (28th) and staying at the Silverwater Resort outside San […]


The Gentlemens’ Ride – January 2012

Blue skies and fair winds welcomed five gentlemen setting passage for the rustic hamlet of Walcha; as fine a group of gallants that e’re trod this federated land. Motoring north we tarried in Gloucester where the local peasantry proffered us with fine Italian coffee imported, I assume, for just such an occassion. “Crumbs, this coffee […]

Not that we haven’t loved and admired the former scallywag with the daring-do attitude and the mischievous twinkle in his eye but now it is a more mature, more centred and soulful man who will […]

Hell Freezes Over

Took delivery today of my nice, shiny new BMW GS Adventure. The speedo on this bike wins as it came with only 4kms on it. Yes, they are still ugly ….. Yes, they still have things hanging out the side ….. No, I didn’t buy any BMW branded clothing 😉 Yes, I still have the […]

Long Way Up – December 2011

Catchy title that. Think I’m on to something there. Anyway since Lucky’s Busa is still in being repaired he took the Halfabusa up to Andy Pandy’s farm in Gloucester for a ride up through the ranges. By the way Andy Pandy is a genius at making things designed for one thing work perfectly well for […]
