Takin' Bacon

Carolyn and I picked up Bacon from Andrew2 on Sunday morning.



A bit of a chat about the Limeburners Australia Day weekend amongst other things and we were off.

Andrew lives right near the bottom of one of my favourite pieces of road - Macquarie Pass. I knew we would be going there but could not find my video camera mount!! I'll spare you the 'file footage' - search it on Youtube if you like.

You Bacon is growing up very fast - he stole his first kiss while posing at the Mac Nat Park Sign - cheeky bugger!



We stopped at the top of Range Rd for a look at the view:



We headed through Mittagong, Buxton, Hilltop, Thirlmere and into Picton. Took Old Old Razorback and went to Douglas Park - stopping by the creek:



He's a bit of a daredevil too - didn't want to stay on the pillion seat:



Broughton Pass and onto the old Princes Highway - sneaking off for a little powerline play on the way:



That's 215km for the total (2185) - on a 2006 DL-650. Bacon saw the DoctoR in the yard when we got home and is really keen to take it out!!

I was hoping to take Bacon sightseeing around Sydney after work this afternoon and maybe for a little dirt tomorrow but I tore a calf muscle playing squash yesterday and don't think I'll be riding for a week or two - perhaps another Sydneysider can take him?

Sorry bout the name. There I was thinking I'd done well to remember them all, and yours was one I knew.

Old-timers disease has kicked in. If anyone sees me wandering around the bush in a daze just point me back to Canberra.

Cheers

Pink In Newtown!

I just picked up the little fella from Dean.



We did some shopping.





I then showed him some ADV riders favourite shops.





Then home.

Pig meets Duc.



Off to bed as we have a big day tomorrow.

Go Bacon! Say has anyone started a map with a track of Bacons travels? Sure would be nice to visualize the route? Linky?

Has someone sat him down and had "the talk" with Bacon yet? Surely he must be wondering why we are eating all his cousins?!?!
