well in the driest state, in the driest continent......its just so convenient to have a never ending continuous run of wet weather in Adelaide. it all seemed to start the DAY....the very DAY that i signed the contract for a new GV250 for my chick (you know her as Soozie) so i been doing the following behind in the car thing....in the wet, since we got it nearly 2 weeks ago. we have been riding at nights after work, locally and today was the first proper 'day run'. this time we went out for a decent ride to barossa valley. she lives on the doorstep of the road that leads to it. anyway after a patchy ride on a 100% damp road, we got to the home stretch and only about 6kms from home, and we come to the one bend that i have warned her about repeatedly. its a hairpin that falls away, off camber. so we are on the exit of it, and im thinking all is well.... then the azz end skips out and i thought she is gone, but she just caught it. i am thinking what the hell did she do to have that reaction and i thought maybe she gassed it up too soon, but when we stopped it was the first question i asked. it was simple. she was about to change up to 3rd....and got first instead. i dropped my bike as a learner in my driveway, doing the same thing, but she was lucky it didnt go down......this time.
