  1. Occupy Melbourne Tent Monsters

    No, I wasn't sure what it was going to be when I saw the title. It’s illegal to camp in the parks in Melbourne, so when is a tent not a tent? When it's an outfit :D Occupy Melbourne Tent Monsters - YouTube

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    well it's a long time since I've done more than about 300k in one go, & never on the transalp, who's seat is killingly painful after only an hour. Having asked for ideas on here (& elsewhere), & having failed to buy some cycling shorts I managed to grab an inflatable neck cushion thing which I...
  3. My first trail experience.

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    Well I suppose this is not really a ride report as such but my first experience of any kind of `off road` experience. The closest I have ever come to leaving my nice smooth roads is a slightly bumpy country lane. So I set off and the first port of call is a quick break in Saltburn ready...

Stinking hot weather all week-end &...

  8. Going up or down, what's the hardest?

    I was at Bridge Motorcycles today and was looking at some of the smaller bikes. One, a 650 trail bike much like my old KLX-650 staggered me at how totally tiny it now looks after I've been riding things like the ZX7, @ and now the Vara. I then thought that it would be quite daunting getting back...
