As if finding an inflatable Stonehenge in the centre of Glasgow wasn't weird enough, things got stranger moments later when Sarah and I went to sit by the river to have a drink ..... out of no-where a large seal swam past! A seal in the river Clyde ..in the centre of Glasgow! ...on the wrong side of the weir. I was curious to see how it would negotiate the weir so we jumped on the bicycles and gave chase. When it got to the weir it just stopped briefly then using it's flippers it hauled it's self up and over the barrier. Awesome.
I managed to get a few pics (sorry they are poor quality, but I had to be very quick).

The seal ist just gorgeous!
They are kinda smart, aren't they?
Would have loved to see that - thanks for taking the shots, mate.

Nice ride-out shots as well, of course.
Does Gary use the sparkie WIZ sliders? I'm gonna get me a pair of those when I get a new bike.

I wish the weather would get better here as well. It's been terrible the last days and weeks. They say it's gonna be better by the end of the week. Let's see.

Cheers, mate!

Hi mate .... yes, I am going to keep my eyes peeled for our seal friend in future and see if I can get some better pictures of him. It's a good sign that the water in the Clyde must be getting cleaner. Sarah and I also recently spotted a porpoise in the river near the BAE shipyard at Govan.

I'm not sure what make Gary's kneesliders are but they are solid titanium pucks .

'Sometimes it's the little things in life that matter most'

This little thing sure mattered today ...




It managed to ruin my plans for a rideout when I discovered it embedded in my rear tyre whilst I was oiling the chain getting ready to leave this morning.

Still went to meet the others for breakfast and see them off..... snapped a few pics whilst there.

Spring, - and the blossom is out on the trees.... (Stevie's ZX6R in the foreground)..



I say 'spring' but it was chilly enough for Dave to have his heated grips cranked up to the max....


Stevie's can ..... both he and Dave have the same systems (ZX6R & GSXR750)


Mike, Stevie & Dave getting ready to roll....

Flinders Ranges

We had a few days away with the bikes up in the Flinders Ranges South Australia. Just a view of a few turns from the lookout.

Great looking trail! ..... not much rain round there by the look of it.
'Razorback' - 'is that a reference to those wild boars? (I remember an awfull film by that name - killer boar in the outback !.... probably fairly harmless beasts in real life? ).
