My motorcycle is soooo spoilt

Not only has it been to the service place and had new rear tire (which yes, is way more slippery than the old one, but I'm sure it will wear in) new air filer and clutch cable, but it has also been (drum roll please) WASHED! I know, I can't believe it either. I have not be washing it, not because I am lazy in any way, but because there is a water shortage, yes that's it, there is no water to spare for things like motorcycle washing. I had even been feeling quite bad about how crappy it was looking, but now it's dials are shiny, the mirrors are clean and the spider webs are all gone. It's a whole new motorcycle! (even if it did miss it's 30,000km service)
Anyway, what this port is really all about is that next week, we are going on a ride with the BMW motorcycle club, following the Major Mitchell Trail (not a great link, I couldn't find a better one). So, for the next little while, I will be posting to our travel blog. I will be posting from my iPhone, so the formatting will be crap, till I get home to the internet and fix it, and also I won't be doing photos till I get home, as last time I tried that it wall went pear shaped. Anyway, have fun til I return.....

Guess what!! It's a bit of bummer when you take a day of leave, to go to Bendigo to go to an exhibition of lovely cloths from the 40's and
50's, then go straight to the pub for your Scottie club committee
meeting in South Melbourne only to discover, when you are sitting
comfortable out the front with a beer; whilst cleverly and nerdilly
checking your email on your iPhone, that the meeting has been
postponed to the next week.

It's 80's time

The 80's have come up a number of times in the last few days, for various random reasons, and I was reminded of this photo of me and some others at an 80's party.

As you can see, martin, on the left, went to no effort. Heather in the middle is looking very 80's and I had a great time at the op shop, although the t-shirt I already had, as I did the neck lace, badge and net and ribbon in my hair. The bracer's are Neils', as is the beer!!

So I have been back from fire for a long time now and I am still fairly buggered. I can't work it out. Now, maybe silly-ily I have said I'll go out tomorrow after noon for night shift. It's only 4 days/nights, I'm sure I'll be fine, no really :S
