Yeah scary stuff actually. That guy was lucky to get away without broken legs. I've come across a couple of rams (in farms) that were capable of grievous bodily harm. They sure aren't friendly lil fluffy things.

There is a annual award for the local running club of a set of boar tusks after one of their runners had to hot foot it away from a wild boar on one of the city tracks.

Bloody productive weekend this last one.
I assessed Schmidt after his fall from grace & found a broken headlite plastic & the exhaust brackets had broken off - more from the bouncing around than the fall. Got those fixed up, set the valves & rebalanced the carbs.
An oil change & filter followed.
Runs quite nicely now but will try some jetting changes when I get other things out of the way.
Speedo 200kms

I thought about my tool roll & had a great idea. I went down to the recycling shop & aftera bit of a rummage around found most of the bits & pieces to replace the lost ones - saves cash & already have that well worn look. Started making another tool roll - this time out of easy to spot white imitation leather for that eighties feel

Started making the kids a hovercraft too for the school science fair. Quite cool seeing them getting into making something rather than being stuck to a screen. i'll post up a vid of it when it is finished.

I've sold the KLX 400 now which is good - unfortunately the money for that is going to the new driveway.

It was a small group of runners :)
Trev, the Maitai Dam caretaker drowned the boar in the river (by hand).

How can you expose yourself when your short and curlies are covered by a helmet?
