Last Ride Day on 31st May 09

Well its finally turned a bit chilly but not too bad considering its Winter - out on the bike the aches & pains are a good sign that we're not getting any younger.
Up in the northern hemisphere ridng in minus temperatures was normal, even in snow - wearing jeans, pair of Doc Martins and a Levi jacket minus the sleeves - hard to believe now when I'm freezing even with 3 layers of clothing and its 12c!

Its this time of year when that exhaust under the seat of the Sprint is very appealing!

The calendar has a break over June - I'm not sure if anyone turned up last Sunday anyway.
A few of us did the May ride to Deans Marsh. It was a great morning and great to catch up with a few old faces a Martians. Stefan was there on the bonnie - those exhaust modifications were too much for some of us - riding in his wake was like riding behind a tractor. I think he was going to put the original exhausts back on - too many of us told him the mods sounded crap!
I had an e-mail from the Point Cook Motorcycle Club - they're orgainsing the Pink Ribbon Ride this year and there's a departure point from Mercer St on the day - 25th Oct - see link for info.
Hopefully the week-end will be as good as the last one - I should have a new chain on the Sprint on Saturday and hope to get out on the road Sunday.
Might see you on the road...
