    Rode from Tamworth to Bellingen on Fri, picked up my daughter and rode back today - the Triumph runs perfect! (That's Miss Linkin on the left).

    I think in Qld, more than 45km/h over they take your licence and your vehicle, and maybe crush the vehicle - there were threats, at least. They also threatened $1000+ fines for mobile phones while driving. Unless you cry to judge, then you get let this one time.... Each time...

    None of my business, but their riding gear doesn't look appropriate!

    Here is one for the record books I think... although.. in Katoomba that would be normal practice...
    Taken from Nine News.

    A woman has racked up an astonishing 34 demerit points in a single incident while driving in Sydney's Blue Mountains.
    The woman was driving through Katoomba yesterday around 2pm when NSW Police officers on motorcycles noticed she was using her mobile phone when negotiating a roundabout.
    After pulling her over, officers attached to the Motorcycle Response Group allege that none of the woman's passengers including three children and a man were wearing a seatbelt.

    Had some big plans for today, re-wire the trailer, slip the good motor into the CB250 but then the mercury started to rocket up and with smoldering embers dropping I ended up staying inside.

    Still over 44 here at present

    Tomorrow will be better, quiet night tonight

    18° overnight? That's crazy looking for a jumper on a 45°C day. At you should have been able to work late in shed last night; everyone was up until midnight for some reason..

    Nah... A Southerly was blowing quite hard and the smoke etc carried on the wind made it uncomfortable outside.
    It is better today with a top of only 33 so a bit will be done today hopefully.

    So.... after Penrith officially being the hottest place in the world yesterday (48.9 C) and me giving up at around 10am when it was over 40 already today was a much better day at only 33.
    Managed to manipulate the engine into the CB250 and bolted a few more items onto it... I will finish off bolting back on the loose items I have and photograph it all to put onto Flea-bay next weekend...Then back into the SRX... New Year... New Goals...

    Yep... the hole (intended) of Penrith can be a nasty place in Summer and Winter. I just wish it would rain... even just a little, I am sick of the crunchy stuff outside that pretends to be remnants of grass being brought inside by the dogs...lol
    Today is a better day... pity I am back at work again.

    I had rain last night, poured down for a while. Unfortunately I was riding my bike home at the time - not so good.

    I left pretty late from Brisbane, after 3pm, so I had a couple of naps on the way home. One such nap was just on the gravel of the roadside - the leathers made it quite bearable, or I was really tired.

    Thanks to @kiffsta for his help and hospitality. I did a little work to the Aprilia RS125. Fitted side fairings.

    Picked myself up a 99 1100cc V star for $100, it sat in a guys front yard partially disassembled for 2 years after he bought a Harley , so far I spent another $100 on oil , filter fork seals and fork oil , going to do the seals today then it is off for rego

    I am not really a cruiser guy, but it will do as a run about

    $100? now that is a bargain. I bet you sell it in the next few weeks. Better still, swap it for an RVF400.
