It’s the Full Monty, @mikeS

Now if you’d only get on with test-fitting the 1250 under-screen aerofoil I’d know whether I could trim back the lower edge and bring some air up under it.

After a few months of lockdown, working from home, and regional travel restrictions, it was good to get back into a work-related routine, rolling the sleeves up and back to business. I managed to cover over 600K today on LC and got to ride rain-sun-cold-fog and everything in between and loved every minute.

From my home base in Sydney, outer inner-west travelled along the putty road to the upper Hunter to Gloucester, Thunderbolts Way, Oxley H’way and an overnight stop in Tamworth. Here are some snapped along the way:

Arrived at Walcha and decided to have a quick smabo and cuppa. Always an intresting stop at this little cafe with it motorcycle theme.




Arrive Tamworth with enough time for a quick shower and headed to my favorite new england region Indian restaurant.

Yum!

Your odometer must be edging up a bit by now, @mikeS, with all these generous day trips you do. Maybe time to take advantage of the EOFY specials and trade in for a 1250? 😉

At the moment, Panzer - I’m very content with my old LC.

I suspect that Pz is testing the waters to see if you may be interested in joining him in a group buy - of two x 1250s...

Those trip photos look very familiar, @mikeS - you didn’t take a virtual rather than real tour, simply reprising some old pictures? 😉

Since you two seem to have so much spare time, how about advising me how to reinstate my signature line, if you please. Step by step using terms understandable by an eight year-old would suit. Bituminous material....

Yes, but it doesn't automatically appear, as it should I believe... or does it?

My daughter, who’s home from college for the week, joined me on a nice afternoon ride. She’s been riding with me since she was 12, and this was another wonderful Dad-and-daughter ride to file away in the ol’ memory banks.

Hers is the hot pink helmet.;)

There’s an option in your Profile Settings, Lawrence, to partially or fully show signatures when you are viewing. The full signature is always there.

Another fabulous day out on my LC with thew weather laying on a near-perfect winters day. From Tamworth, I headed off the long way around for a lay of the Oxley H’Way to my overnight stop at Port Macquarie. With not so early start New England H’Way and turning off Piallamore-Dungowan-Woolomin-Niangala, Made my way to Thunderbolts Way to Walcha and onto the Oxley H’way ... twisties galore! Here are some pix from my day out.








Oh, @Panzermann, I can wait to share this little snap of two little flea-bags with Nigel - Looks like these guys are living the dream.


Managed to crack of 450k and arrived at my Port Macquarie hotel - check-in, shower and, yes, dinner. Nothing special but hits the spot perfectly...
