Yesterday I went to Tamworth to recce the ride route for the weekend. It was on the basis of "Yes, Mrs Hornet, I'll be careful, and I'll ring you when I get there and I'll probably stay the night up there and see you back home Wednesday afternoon, kiss, bye" sort of stuff. Well I left Wollongong at 6:00am, got to the ride start point at Wilberforce at 8:00am and arrived in Tamworth at 4:00pm, all stops included. Rang Mrs Hornet, yes, all ok, might stay, or just head a few kays down the New England and stay somewhere closer to home, it's still light, warm, you know the drill!! Anyway, I stopped for dinner at 7:00pm at Singleton, and got home a 10 to 12 last night!!! 1228 kilometres in 18 hours, all stops included. Can you tour on a 600 Hornet? Mate, I want it buried with me when I die, because I reckon there's not a hole I could get myself into that that incredible little bike couldn't get me out of!!! So, do I get an Iron-Butt award, huh, huh??
