A nowhere ride

Yesterday I was busy mowing and gardening and several bikes rode past whilst I was busy cutting down branches out the front. It's double points long weekend here which means the cops virtually take your license for doing 1 kmh over the limit. So I resisted the temptation, then a few more bikes went by. Did I mention it was a fantastic day for riding. Then the missus and kids got in the car and went to church. Was I gonna stand here all day doing boring chores all by myself or was I going for a ride?

Bugger this it's to good of a day to waste doing chores and no riding. So I quickly cleaned up and got the bike out. I wasn't going to go on a long ride as the minister of finance and warfare would be back in an hour and a half.

So I just went for a short ride locally. I happened to find myself out the front of Yamaha Australia HQ which is only 10 minutes from where I live. This is where my bike came from(factory in Japan excluded).

  2. the long weekend double points/fines scenario is always a reason to have a second think about going out for a ride

    1. Ride to the snowys sounds good. Yep there wasn't any on e around except one girl riding up and down on a motorcycle and one pushbike rider doing the same.

  3. I am glad they don't have those double points days here. It is a given everyone goes 5-10 miles over the speed limit and the cops don't usually ticket until you are over 10 mph over the limit.

    Nice you go out for a wee poodle while the family was out.
