Thanks Michael but my young bloke has his birthday party on Sat and I'd be shot if I went on a ride. Id love to join the guys on another ride though so will have a look at the calendar. By the way, some good action stills off the video camera, well done.

Cheers,
Mark

Was lucky enough (by chance) to meet up with the guys at Wollombi, nice bikes, and a 1098 was there too.

Looks nice but a bit far from home........................

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.


Skye I miss you. L'essentiel est invisible pour les yeux.

the other girls were busy washing their hair..

the 1098s had 50klm on it at the start of the ride, so he was taking it easy, which is understandable..

on a sadder note, i had a tangle with a patch of gravel and the armco barrier after we left wollombi (about 15k from wollombi), doing about 80k through a right hand bend, hit a great big patch of gravel on the road...managed to keep it upright, but by then was on edge of bitumen and heading for the armco... bounced off the armco about 3 times, (my leg between bike and barrier), before i managed to pull it up... 2 new stripes down side of bike, and broken foot peg mount, luckily my Gilles rearsets have multiple mounting holes, so i took a bolt from other side and relocated into another hole... allowed me to ride and change gears (after a 15 minute stop to regain composure & blood pressure..a little white...)

anyway, for once i was lucky there was a barrier there, unlucky about the gravel, and although i have some bruising and a sore leg, the bike is rideable and doesn't have a lot of damage, compared to what could have happened...have bought my lottery tickets today....
