Looking good Kam. May this be the start of a looooong relationship. Is that pic a little out of focus or is the bike trembling?

Even sorrier to hear about the biff, but glad you are (mostly) ok
But now a new bike for the new year

Neil.

Ha Ha ...thanks, your granny was probably right..... but I don't lose them if they live on my head ..and just a quick 'head nod' and they snap down into position for reading.

[QUOTE=DougZ73;23104663]The man, the myth, the legend. Congrats on the new bike and a happy new year to you and the mrs./QUOTE]



Thanks Doug .... same to you and your family.

'man, myth, legend'? - you missed out 'the muppet' (who keeps trashing his bikes) bit !

btw.... I have upgraded to a better camera too.... just got a Sony NEX 3n ...can't wait to try it out when we get out riding .....although it will need to excel to beat the wee Canon that was perfect for the task..... time will tell. However I do love the 'low light' capability of it and the 'panorama' mode that stitches pictures together ..here's my first try at it .....(and with no flash in the dark). I'm pretty pleased with it ... (That's Sarah also taking a pic in the pic! Lol!)

Cheers Terry


Hi Terry.... the 14.5C sounds quite appealing .....but you can keep the 49.3C ! Yikes! I can't imagine even thinking of wearing leathers and helmet in that heat!

Cheers .... As for riding in 'comfort' that will be when the weather improves in spring..our rideout season should kick off again in about 9 weeks, - early/mid March usually ...although I have got to sort out picking the bike up in the next two weeks which will involve a 200 mile ride home....I'm hoping the snow keeps away!

Hi mate... yes, I'm going to do my very best to keep out of helicopters from now on - those things are dangerous!

Look forward to seeing you and the Mrs back up here ...lets hope we are in for a glorious summer!
