Every rides an adventure These things appear normal to me 'cause I'm so used to it. I have this secret fear of one day being abducted by aliens. For me, it's probably not a case of if but when.

Im bringing some tinfoil on the next ride so we can make some hats, that will keep out the signals

It was a fine looking rabbit you bagged. Have you ever thought of getting some roadkill tank stickers for the Orange Reaper, like an old fighter ace? That'd send any greenie we ever meet into a frothing meltdown. Be hugely funny.

Actually Stuart, it'd probably be easier on everyone if you just strapped a Webber kettle to the carry rack. We could stop every so often on a ride to baste the meat and add more critters.

I could use the chance to try out my new soft bags fill em up with road kill and we can toss a coin see who gets to wear the dog collar from any stray dogs, could be hilarious to go through the fruit fly inspection point on the border,,

Yes. Yes it could. Got my Steel Pony bags now as well. Looking forward to using them. Might hold off on your idea though.

I think the dog collar might go down well at the kersbrook servo.

Well just got back from a quick spin tonight up around MT Crawford forest, I found the bike handles better than anticipated on easy dirt roads for such a large bike (must have been how slow I was going ) and the power delivery smooth.

Due to recent events, will be going on a ride Monday morning. If anyone’s keen will be a the gully hotel at 8:30 for a 9:00 departure. No real plan just ride as many dirt roads as possible up towards Morgan/Sudan.

I might defiantly be up for that on Monday I knock off work at 8am and can be at the Gully by 8:45 but if Im not there by the time you need to leave then don't wait, Im sure Sundowner will be there too.

on another note if anybody is ever up the mid north then do go to the

Well done Rich, good to see that Corey finally got that bike back together and its looking pretty neat.
Your bike was acually my inspiration for buying my own S10.
Have Fun.

I think the silver tube is a Flux Capacitor...
