So I'm sitting on my couch high as a kite on painkillers after my accident on Tuesday. I was travelling city-bound on Chandos St in St Leonards & when I was approx 50 meters from a T intersection with a terminating road I noticed a red commodore pull up to the intersection. I was already covering my brake as I pretty much always do so but decided to slow down in case he decided to pull out....
After some deliberation, decided to go ahead with the Rosso III's on Friday (AND also decided to get the 190/55 Rear instead instead of the stock 190/50). The ride home was just about 15 mins but I could immediately feel the difference between the squared off PR4's and the new R3's. OK, maybe it was the excitement of new tyres. So Saturday - took the bike to the Melbourne Moto Expo...
As a few of you know, i dropped my bike a couple of weeks ago and it scratched and left a small crack in a couple of fairing parts. The fairings were Chinese ones that i wasn't really happy with, because of various reasons. i made the decision to paint my original fairings that were dark blue. First step was to take the gloss layer off the original fairings with 400g wet and Dry. Cleaned them up...
Well, Sibi and I got invited along for a "Nasho/Macquarie Pass" run by chilliman64 with a couple of his workmates including Turks and oh lordy what a day it turned out to be. Distance: 320km, Riding Time: 5hrs, Average Speed: 64km/hr. We met up with some of the guys at Parramatta at 8:30am and then made our way to Sutherland where we met up with two others. From there is was a nice ride down...

For a long long time, I've been thinking of doing CSS (California Superbike School) and after a lot of deliberation, finally got my thumb out and f***ing did it. A lot of you know why the Lazy in my name is there so I won't expand on that part but I had one of the best experiences of my biking life. It's been 3 weeks since that day but not a day goes by when I don't think about it.
Went for a nice long ride on Saturday. My current favourite day trip (which I’ve posted about before) is what I’ve been calling the ‘Kakadu Triangle’ - a 700km triangular loop from Darwin, southeast through Jabiru and Kakadu, then back north through Pine Creek and Adelaide River to Darwin. I am working up to a tour in early 2017 (exciting news, will share more about that soon) hence I am using...
I wanted to publicly thank @Stever42 for taking time out of his Sunday and taking me under his wing for an hour and a half today. The patience he showed with my questions, waiting for me to put fuel in my bike and even readjusting both my gear leaver and preload made my confidence increase. So thanks Stever42 i really appreciate and look forward to another session soon. If...
I had a day off work yesterday and intended to have a short ride.... things got a little out of hand.. Yea first up with cake and a drink... not unreasonable. Then Benalla seemed reasonable and was a good lunch stop. Well Yarrawonga was only a short hop from there so that was ok. What's that, a border? Well I'll just have a sneaky peek at Mulwala and see what Vic looks like from the other side ...
So you want to ride a motorbike... the controls are all different & weird, you’re out in the wind & rain, it won’t even stay upright by itself, AND THEN THEY TELL YOU TO RELAX! Almost every new rider has found themselves locked rigid on their bike – more than once!! It’s human nature in the face of new, unknown, potentially threatening circumstances and we all know what it’s like!...
