Close but no cigar

Hope for the best, plan for the worst.
  1. After a late night on the town, i dragged myself out of bed under the assumption that today's weather was going to be horrible. Typical BOM changed their mind and decided that there would be a chance of showers as opposed to an apocalyptic storm.


    It was business as usual for most of the ride to Sorrento. With the occasional twisty and surge of the throttle. I was feeling confident I had allowed enough time for sightseeing but at Safety Beach I realised that id be 10-20 minutes late. The crosswind at Safety Beach was powerful and unexpected but nothing a little blip of the throttle couldn't fix.


    I arrived at Sorrento with not a ferry in sight, but being the only one there gave me a good photo opportunity. I went for a walk in the brisk wind and hopped on the ferry at 3 o'clock.

      Thanks Brad, it's getting service at the moment but they've hit a few snags :(

      Like what? I found my spada a little difficult to work on due to age but accessability was great.

      well it turned out the rear tensioner was a tad wonky or something. the timing chain was loose compared to the front. we decided not to do anything yet as it's not catastrophic and too expensive to fix.
