Post by scrubrunner » Wed Apr 05, 2017 6:55 am

anyone up to add to the numbers - we got aprox 1/2doz of us just now meeting up for a bit of a pedal through the nebo/glorious & a bit further out type lap on sat, if interested kicking off around 730 at the bp at the gap, you'll recognise us - orange bikes but wait? mines black 8-)

there you have it, meet some new faces, variety of sized orange & BLACK things, varying skills but all with the common desire to ride & have a giggle along the way, so be ye fast or no - most welcome to come play

G'day Scrubrunner and fiends......I've been wanting to tag along for ages, but my Saturday's are tied up with mundane stuff.......I mostly get down to the Outpost Cafe at Canungra for breakfast on Sunday's, being the only orange bike there (have seen a hot looking black SD-R occasionally)...... followed by a cruise through the hills or over the mountain.....gets me home before the summer heat sets in.. :)

I also infest KTM Central (Tony's Cafe) for breaky on some Saturdays (before I have to do that mundane stuff)...... though the days are getting longer (daylight now 5 ish ).... ;)

Cheers Scrubs, got the pm.......now you're in strife.......we can protect our rims, and our reputations, with skillful blarny those young blokes wouldn't understand...... ;)

I gotta admit I haven't had the opportunity to give the 1290 it's head yet (pol-patrols or rough narrow roads or all sorts of excuses.....), so I'm not likely to embarrass anybody as I don't like being laughed at while lying under a scratched up bike..... :lol:

Ps......but I have given it some stick when no one is watching......and F*k me it flies.... :D

:lol: ..... if'n it's gunna bee this ferkin hot ..... might have to aim for Tenterfield's altitude (and coolness).

Oh wait...... forecaster's say cooler weather coming........haha......when have they been right recently :roll:

Been messing around weighing up options to replace U13 (gearbox went boom yesterday :( - that was fun, not) - the car is 23yrs young - bloody nice to drive.......cruise, aircon, shocks, tinted windows, pwer everything, and a 90Ltr LPG tank in half the enormous trunk........ :lol: :lol: ......yeah, it could go 1000kms on full tanks......but it's the end of the line for the old girl......

I'm liking the new Suzuki "Vitara" that was released in 2015......f drive (I don't need 4wd), 6 speed auto, full spec trinkets and almost as frugal as a Honda CBR1100XX..... 8-) ........ all for a couple of $k less than a 1290GT :o .... i love aircon...... ;).........but wait, there is a turbo option....... :twisted:......decisions eh?

Rainy Sunday's........ :(

Bike Show (Laverda Club's annual 'Concourse' show......remember those old 3cyl beasts?).......washed out.... :(

My early am breakfast ride .......washed out..... :(

Bugger........

Oh well.....got the mowing done yesterday just before it started to rain all night (and today).... :)

The U13 (car) lives to fight on......it was a LH drive shaft that went 'Bang'...... :)

So the CBR1100XX got some useful riding for a week commuting in our deadly 'killer' traffic while car off the road........and just missed the rain showers so no need to wash and shine it....... :)

KTM got to take me to Saturday morning coffee with ageing reprobates (to vale our fallen mate who succumbed to his un-winnable fight with throat cancer.. :( )........so that's a mix of :) and :( ............

And the Motegi Moto GP is on at civilised time this afternoon on free to air TV...... :)

That's a good mix of smiles to balance out the sad's........... :lol:
