  1. G'day Punters,

    Came on one of the "Mystery Rides" tonight as result of an invitation from a friend of someone who had had an off on a ride.

    Ironically enough I was filtering down Punt Road on the way to it and heard a bike in my 'blind spot' doing same.

    Eventually I pulled up next to the rider at traffic lights and as we drew along side (after he'd kindly pulled aside to let me through) I said to him "Man - those pipes sound great!" with was something I'd normally never do (but they DID!) and we had a brief chat before the lights changed.

    As we riders tend to do.

    Off I went.

    Off he went and we lost each other in the carpark traffic (although of course I was keeping an eye out for him and I then knew he was for me - like it should be).

    Rocked up to the BP servo in St Kilda - had just finished filling the tank in preparation for the ride and guess who pulls in to do same?

    "Seen you somewhere before I think" I say to him and we grin at each other.

    Turns out it was his first time out on a Mystery Ride too.

    Thanks heaps to Will for the invite.

    A great pity it took another rider's off to get me there.

    But the whole evening was a pleasure.

    Unfortunately for you lot you may well see my ugly mug there again....
