Lookin For Adventure...... Head Out On The Highway.......

Post by Aussie Dave » Mon Sep 03, 2018 6:58 am

Oooooh yeah....... 2018, a year I'll never forget :(

However, I've been busy preparing my 1290GT for some adventures in 2019 (or sooner, if I can ;) ).

Decided to graft my old style 40Ltr cases on and create a Heavy Duty Hauler........ well, I was getting itchy feet (or cabin fever :lol: ) lounging around home, restricted from driving/riding as I recover (slowly :roll: ) from heart by-pass surgery - anyhoo, ere's a pic of my enhanced SDGT-HDH....... now, come on Doc, sign the letter so I can get out on the highway......... :mrgreen:

That's what 40Ltrs looks like.....

Gotta stop posting any reference to anticipated riding approvals....... fickle finger of fate spots them and slaps me down with longer delays... :lol: Oh well, it's not 2019 yet....... arrrgh I've done it again........ :twisted:

:mrgreen: I'm feeling good to go...... hoping the medical team agrees........ it's time to ride ;)

Holy crap, bike rider hit by car (today's morning news) and then a woman was hit while trying to help the downed rider......... :shock: ........... drivers must be blind (though I don't know the conditions other than the incident happened at night)....... always make sure you are protected when trying to assist other road users ;)

What a difference a day makes.... :roll: ....... the above bike guy was a drug dealer on the run from the law who crashed into another road user. The woman trying to assist this drug dealer criminal was killed by another motorist (it was night time so vision might have been difficult at the scene)....... what a waste of a good samaritan's life......... so bike riders aren't always innocent victims of car driver's mistakes...... :shock:

Ho Ho.....bloody Ho...... well at least the medical team has given me a date, even though it's another month of waiting..... at least I have a target date ;) - though the SDGT might still have to wait for 2019 before I feel confident/fit enough to ease back into riding...... :mrgreen:
