Yesterday was way way too tired to put up a blog and hence its being posted today:

Day started quite early and in much "nippiness". Cracked our the hot water bottle again Woke up before the alarm clock too excited to be able to bed-in the new lawnmower's engine without the weight of my full luggage & panniers - felt just as naughty and free as skinny dipping!

Off to the Great Ocean Road & surrounds for some fun in the hills with Wheres me Boike. Struggled to keep my excitement below red(lining) levels & also finally being able to ride my own behind such suave and elegant BMW beast. Talk about my bike looking like a toy next to it! Hehehe

Got back to Melbs in the arvo straight to clean up, pack up & shut shop. Once lawnmower was fully loaded with all bags, off I scooted into the fading light to get away from Melbourne's suburbia sprawl before it noticed (or I noticed the emotional goodbyes of a leaving!).

I arrived to my destination near Moe; Tired, cold & hungry & then proceeded to freak out with possibly disk/caliper brake issues. As It just turned out, I WAS just being irrational, cold, over tired & hungry . Phew!
When I first joined in Feb/March this year, someone stated in a thread, that if I came unstuck that there would always be someone with advice or on with a helping hand... And I tested it out. It's true. This was a testament to the NR forum power: thank you GeorgeO & Wheres me Boike for after hours, & prompt remote tech support !!! Saved me from completely freaking out
I was more or less wiped out and found it hard to get my brain to function enough to blog. In true form, I get too excited and wanna cram as much as I can in a single riding day; and maybe yesterday was bordering on slightly too much! Lol
Never mind, you only live once!
