Hey Rolex,

My PM was basically to thank you for your generous offer of the Sit and Fly, however there is a back story to my sheep skin seat.

I‘ve always lusted after a sheep skin from Berry, particularly on previous bikes.

Anyway, when my mum got chair bound she used to sit on a good quality sheepskin. When she passed away I realized it was a good fit for the strom’s seat. I got a leather worker to sew on some Velcro to go under the seat and it works well.

I’m a little sentimental and actually I think it’s kind of cool! I can’t see myself riding with anything else.

Thanks heaps anyway

Maybe I was being a bit optimistic about the weather, maybe Kiama or Nowra might be better? Sydney siders may like to come down through the RNP and people down the coast could, well, come up the coast. Would that suit you p38?

I'd be happy with Kiama or Bundanoon. Not sure about Nowra - although I could go via Kangaroo Valley

Kiama might be warmer than Bundanoon which is currently 3 deg C (feels like -4.4 C)

There's not much difference in distance between Bundanoon and Nowra for me.

What are you thinking ???

It is my son's birthday but I recon if I invite him that takes care of things.

Sydney to Nowra is no fun but if I spend Friday night a Rolex it could work, Rolex to Nowra can be good fun.

Geez V-Harry,

the middle of winter and you'd prefer to go to Broome than have a lemon squash at the local!

Hey Rolex,

do you want to meet up this Saturday as it's your son's birthday? Do you know what Brucestrom is up to? Looks like the weather should be ok however the days are getting short. I don't know of a good pub in Nowra. Ride or postpone?
