Well he has been sleeping in a field for so many weeks maybe it is just a bit of brain fade..ok I will give this one a pass.

But then..

Seriously?

You cant figure out how to use a facet or as you put it a water tap.

There is only ONE lever...



Complains the water takes forever to turn warm (all the while failing to see the circle with the red and blue halves in it). I simple walk over and move the lever to the left...walla hot water.

Chop Chop, Sean-O is he really this slow/simple/dense/inbred and an exception or the rule when it comes to people from Australia?

I'm afraid he is going to end up trying to feed my dog from the wrong end...









We be but simple folk, not wise to the ways of the world or these magical devices of which you speak.

In saying that don't let Hodgo near matches and your dog at the same time

Sure is Jeff, I am amazed at the generosity of the North American People.

After leaving Gary's place I headed down to Rads place in San Diego. Elephant Rad 900 has put up a lot of photos of our activities already.

My activities down in LA at Daves place has mainly consisted of cleaning my bike ready for sending back to Australia.

I removed the exhausts for cleaning and decided it would be easier to get the exhausts ceramic coated, instead of scrubbing them clean.

They turned out pretty good.



I really didn't think that the ceramic coating on the exhausts would make much difference to the heat on the RHS. But boy was I wrong. I actually feel a cool breeze on the right leg now instead of constant heat.


Cleaner bike now.
So after the cleaning I did manage to catch up with Mr Cobb Rider914 & go for a blat up into the hills.

Mr Cob was on his trusty old Hog.


Got to love the yanks for the new "Designer Dogs"

Mat & myself.

Myself & the "Youngfella"

The awesome foursome.

Some train action on the way home. Just love these big suckers over here.

Well I have cleaned the bike & dropped it off at shumacher transport for the shipping home in a shared container for $400USD.

As I pulled up I noticed that they were also shipping some ducati's over to New York.


Luckily I applied for my approval to Import my bike back to Australia on the 20th of Oct but still here we are 4th of Nov and still no word back from the Oz gov.

Heading up to Death Valley this Friday with hopefully half a dozen riders and get the privilege of riding Dave's Vstrom.

So should get some great photos of up there as it was a bit hot the last time I went through that area.

Might need to investigate this myself. I was under the impression it was quite expensive to get done.

I would have expected with the Poms planned return there would be a lot more activity in this thread planning and scheming for his house wrec..uh warming and welcome back part.

He is partial to pink so you should decorate the place accordingly.
