Slow going...

The 640 has sold so looks like I'll be heading down early Saturday morning on the Postie. With gear it has a top speed of 80 (flat road, tail wind) - taking the inland highways as I want to avoid the freeway. Kev and his brother are taking Harleys and he reckons they'll ride with me

Looks like i'll be on my own...

Hitting a few drinking spots on the way home sounds more like it.
You will be amazed at what a Harley can actualy do. Thats if we give it to Howard.
