Tourist bimble from Cleveland to Wellington Point, then Wynnum Esplanade for a coffee. Been on a cruise for five days and had to get out on the bike somewhere, anywhere. Hoping to do a day loop up to Sunshine Coast hinterland next weekend.

Cheers all...... nice pics...... once again I was due to throw a leg over (to ride in to get my recalls done :roll: ) but have been struggling with another virus or weird heat/dust/whatever effect..... I'm ok but not as good as last week...... dang it, just bad timing...... oh well - re-booked for the 24th and a couple of long term super friends are available to ride with me so long as I buy the coffee :lol: .

Lots of those pics (except for mick's) are places I have haunted over the years....... :mrgreen:

Hey, Mrs Lackloin :lol: ;) ...... you were only a km away from my place when you parked on the Wynnum foreshore last Saturday. (looks like the wading pool precinct)...... I was having coffee with my elders down Springwood way in the morning (car), and came home feeling a bit off (suspected virus) and wasted the weekend being careful and resting..... :(......I might be a bit of a WUSS but it is scary pale face, tummy discomfort, stingy eyes, tiredness stuff that reminds me of my pre-heart bypass symptoms.. :roll:

I hope the tide was in like it was the last time I had a ride on my Bluebird.... pic up near Darling Point Lighthouse park......looking back to where you were coffee-ing.....

Just spent a week riding with my son, i brought him an MV Rivale to ride when he's home visiting from Melbourne, we did some great roads, averaging 500kms a day. We stopped for this pic on the way home over the Central Plateau.

I had my first day out on two wheels in five months last weekend. Cobwebs well and truly blown away, and a proper ticking off from the wife after a few two-up ton-plus wheelies cos I forgot how fruity the XR is. Think that's the longest I've gone without even sitting on a bike in, christ, must be at least a decade. Mostly cos of this...

Between the bust ankle*, the thick end of a month in Aus, and crappy British weather when I got back, I just couldn't be arsed to ride.

Anyway, I won't bother with photos or a writeup, cos it wasn't on a KTM - I finally sold my knackered SMT to a fellow hillclimber late last year, after almost two years gathering dust in the garage. But the weather's perking up, I've got a couple of Brexit-busting foreign trips planned in the next six months, and I can't bring myself to socialise with other beemer owners, so I'm still kinda here.
