Sunday 20 January 2013 - Mandurah, Western Australia 32 degrees sunny and blue skies
I am still waiting on my ProCycle box so I was going to wait on valve adjustment before throwing the oil in and hitting the magic button. Then the weekend came and I thought it was time for a spin. Oil went in, new plugs in and the air filter was good to go. Everything was nipped up (pending valves being done when my box lands) and the roads were calling.
I thought I would post a few local pix to show the lie of the land here. If any of you are cold and damp right now I hope a bit of blue sky lifts your spirits. The spring and summer is coming for you, guys!
Peel inlet - Mandurah WA (Cox Bay)
all the sun dries things up a bit
Dawesville Cut and bridge is in background
same location looking inland from the Indian Ocean
Peel Inlet - eastern foreshore
lots of little coves here
access roads are pretty quiet and serviceable compact gravel
the bush is never too far away
fanged over towards the Forrest Highway on Southern Estuary Road - quiet road and dry as all buggery
bush fire damage is recovering slowly
it's not all quiet country roads here
dry here, too
I am much cooler since I switched my crushed and battered oil cooler for a swish eBayed 'previously loved' unit - and a shiny farkle cover, too!
I fanged it home and then readied to clean, lube and adjust my chain for the first time. Pix in another section.
Everyone like those mirrors? Now I can see more than my elbows. Anyone recognise them?
