Morning Losers!

I managed to get out for a ride last night, it wasn't much, but I need to get the legs (and ar$e!) back into cycling. Whilst on my ride yesterday I saw some cheeky singletrack, so I checked it out on the googlemaps and found I can add to my little ride. I think I'll be up to speed by June. Well, maybe not up to speed, but I won't be dying on a bike!

Laters!

    Busy day....

    been invited to join a 24 hour race team next year.... went out for a scoot on the road bike and going to look at a new apartment which has 2 car spaces and a storage cage.... pretty much unheard of in Melbourne.... so will be able to smash the rollers again :D

    Good ride into work, now for the usual grief before hopefully a decent ride home, before becoming dad taxi as I pick up the rug rats from some random theatre

    Morning all,
    TKM that almost sounds like Codyesque riding. Still more than I'm managing at the moment, wish I had a motorbike that was up and running. Preferably a big loud red one again. Mild hangover as is traditional for my Thursday mornings. Dull drive into work hasn't brightened my mood, bunking off early so all is not lost. Plenty of running about to be done tonight, ferrying large child to and from rugby training, sorting out some admin for scout group stuff and going to visit my folks. All good fun.
    Onwards, to tea.

    Extended my ride home to 20 miles, then added a few more miles on to this mornings ride pushing it to 15. That's 100 miles I've done this week. I think that'll do for this week so after a day of work meh, I'll be driving home.

    Going for a walk is Crudder code for knocking one out.

    Thought so, just seem to see the mention of DIY quite often. Thought I might have missed something during my period of absence from the forum. Good to know some things never change.

    I haven't been following the Cody thread as he was too much of a troll. Not like the old Surfmat threads where the guy was just a real d1ck.
    What motorbike do you have? Do you mean a Ducatti? That wouldn't surprise me why it isn't up and running then ;)

    He is a troll, and a major arsehat. But strangely compelling.
    Had a Ducati SS, awesome thing big, red and f@cking loud. Rebuilt it from this:

    To this:

    Now I've got this:
    IMGP1161.jpg
    Which should look like this, my old one:

    Motorbikes should be loud, and belch flames on the overrun. :twisted:
