  1. I got all the way from the Nepean Hwy to the eastern Freeway along springvale Road... Without touching my feet down once!!!....




    I always love it when that happens..... and it led me to think that there must be some decent distances amoungst us...... we'd have to seperate them into two catogaries.....


    City and suburbs

    And

    Touring?




    If you think you've gone further... tell us all about it!!!!!!!

  2. I usually put my gloves on at the lights after I get out the work carpark (due to the fumbling with car park pass). Once I left a bit early and got all the lights, got home without having a chance to put them on - cold fingers. About 15kms, nothing special though.

  7. I once got, in morning peak hour, all the way from home in Mordialloc and travelling along the Nepean Hwy and Kings Way to Park St in Sth Melbourne. Not a foot down or the bike coming to a stop from me leaving the garage all the way to Park St. I was impressed :) Have yet to achieve it again, or even come close, but I still casually strive to beat it one day :)

  9. Are you supposed to put your feet up?

    But that would put all the weight on the little outside wheels at the back!
