Dont know what the deal is with the other states, but i have my chosen 'sunday drives' which date back since the early 80's. now they are the sunday RIDES...now that i have my firt MotorBike. On these sunday rides, the same places i used to go for 25 plus years, there are now hordes of Mbikes that i never noticed before. today am having my first coffee at a quiet country cafe/bakery (meadows)....25-30 bikes roll up and line the street in front of the cafe. go the the next place 20 kms down the road (strathalbyn), already there are 30 bikes parked at a coffee shop, then 25-30 triumph owners roll up and join in. then half a dozen harly riders roll up. go for a walk around the little country town 20 plus bikes parked at the pub. i dont remember that many MBikes arounds when i used to do these trips with the cage. is it becaue i am now a Mbike rider, and i am more alert to them...or there are genuinely more Mbikes out there these days?
