You scared me Ron....

I'm always concerned someone will get footage of my riding or driving and post it on line, it would not be a good look.

I have taken to giving others a wave after one of my stupid manoeuvres hopping it will ease their pain and if I crash on the next corner they may stop and help.


My bride did buy me Rolex plates similar to the ones in the photo but I don't really like them as I'm too easily remembered.


I once had a tussle with a Range Rover all the way down the Bells Line of Road I was doing over 160kp and he would not let me get by, I have never forgotten his personalised plate.

Some of the 19 rides in my shed
2014 V2, Snoopy
2009 Wee, Pumbaa the pig
WR450F, The Blue Postie Bike
YZ250N smoker with rego, Stinky.
Yamaha MT09 (FZ09), The Scud missile.
Club Lead not Club Med.
He with the most toys wins.
Out of my depth in a puddle.
Live life on the edge you will see more that way.
Ridding a motorcycle keeps things in balance.
At the end of each trail and at the end of each day history is made.

Phew! Not me, I don't have personalised plates on my Rangie.

I feel conspicuous enough here in LA with a learners tag on my windscreen of the Wee. Thanks to a good fellow from down under.
The Scientology badge on the saddle bag is bad enough too.

Still remember Rolex's comment in Tumut.
With the 650 I spent to much time on the wrong side of the double lines, so I got the 1000.
Great couple as all were at Tumut.
We use that road to get around Sydney, that's fast.

And we also invented Wi Fi technology just so we could share the ManKini easier with the rest of the world.
