Just to let you know the V8's are down here this weekend, traffic is gonna be mayhem. I realise it's not so bad on a bike but it may be something to consider anyway. The V8's dont bring a very nice crowd, MotoGP on the other hand.... perfect crowd
If you are going to come down, send me a msg and I'll meet you somewhere!!!

GPXBabe,

Are you getting a new bike?
What are you getting?
If you get a new bike, we can't call you GPXBabe anymore? LOL !!!

Cheeers,

Well, I'm very open to suggestions re. the bike. Would love a new Triumph Sprint ST but looks like it's going to have to be a used mid-size bike. A friend has suggested the Kawasaki ER-6F. I'm just going to have to ride lots and lots of Saturday :D I've decided that choosing a bike is like choosing a partner - it's really hard to find everything you want in one package....

Looks
Reliability
Excitement
Performance......

Now I understand how some people end up with several at the same time :p

As for the name, I'll put it to the vote once I've bought the new bike :D

True ...
Would be a good bike.

However, if you have been riding sport/supersport/sport cruiser for a long time, you may find riding the naked bike a little bit different, initially, because of the riding position, etc ...

I remembered when I started riding with a dirt bike and switched to sport bike (GPX), it took me 20-30 minutes to get acquaint with the bike and riding position.

That's why GPXBabe said that people have lots of bikes stored in their garage/carport/driveway ... Add different flavours to your riding life/style !!!!!

Cheers,
ctruong.

Hey Ben,
Thanks for hanging around while i had the psychic read happening, I swear I'll never ride at 2 in the arvo again, or on the 15th, or the 6th, all those dates hehehe.

Was great to meet you, Andrea & Chris. This was the first time I've gotten to meet any of you, had a near miss with Old Doc & PK2000 a couple of weeks ago though...

Look forward to seeing some of you, hopefully some more of you as well, and remember, if anyone's stuck around MotoGp time, yell out...

As for Devotus & Christo, I did think of what I was writing when I was offfering to ride people home, perhaps I should've used the word 'escort' but I dont think that sounds any better!!!

Should probably say thanks to Andrea for her innovative approach to helping the surfers get out of their wetsuits, I'm try that tomorrow, I particularly liked the "Hey honey" part at the start... I'll be having sweet dreams about the sound of your bike too.

Ben, Linc loves your bike, thought it looked awesome in the pics, even better in the flesh though.

And Chris, yours & mine aren't all that different, nice to have something small & reliable to start with, and it gives us something to look forward to in the future...

bens369

thanks Winesy and Linc, next time i'm down that way young Linc might even get to jump on the back for a quick dink if he's game enough...hehehe... :p

WINESY

Thanks Ben, I'll let him know, he'll be drooling you know!

Actually after the ride & meeting you guys, the wkend went downhill really after that. Got home from picking Linc up at 10ish, got to bed 11ish, midnight get a phone call from a baker at work, she lives across the road from school, Linc's primary school is on fire!! So I make a few phone calls, ring his teacher, then go in to Cowes to see how bad it is. Not too bad as it turns out, but lit on purpose. On the way home, nearly hit a young man who was in the middle of the road, standing on top of a hill, just put my high beams on (am usually looking for bunnies or wallabies) and this young guy is standing in the middle of the road, on the double lines. I swerve to miss him & he jumped in front of my car. I was swearing & screaming, Lincoln was screaming, the car on my tail swerved at the last minute. Made a call to 000 so I hope they bloody got him. The full moon & alcohol really brings out the best in people doesn't it??? Finally got to bed at 3am, after being up from 5am yesterday morning, been many years since I've been up for that long. Don't fancy doing that for a long time! And this is all after a local man drove himself off the cliff & blew himself up Friday night!

Hey Winesy what bakers do you work at?

WINESY
14-09-08, 09:03 PM
Im Bakers Delight In Cowes Colsie, know someone there, or Woni?

Colsie

I help Build Penguin Resort on settlement road and use to go to bakers every day to get my lunch.....best pizza top rolls I ever did have...didnt know anyone by name but Im sure they would know me mugg:D

they might be extending penguin resort so i maybe back there soon??

WINESY
15-09-08, 06:55 AM
Ah that would make sense. Penguin Resort has half the bloody population living there! Although there's young families sticking around, it's mostly an ageing population down here. So you used to shop at Bakers, wonder if I'd know you. I'm always at the store so I guess there's a good chance I would. Well if ever you're back down, you know where to find me. Can't guarantee the quality right now, we lost all 3 qualified bakers in a week so we're training newies now hehehe. We'll be back on track very soon though. Might see you around then!
