Mean Dean’s birthday surprise: A Marty HC yarn

Greetings! With Dualsport Australia Volume 2 finally finished it was time to get away from the computer and go riding. Having roughly made plans for a Sunday (my birthday) ride with Craig, it was up to Mean Dean to finish off the organisation with a general location and time. Quality time with my granddaughter and a swing session that she did not want to end meant I wasn’t geared up when Dean and Craig arrived….

Blog: October 20. Here it is! Disc two is ready to roll.

It’s been a tough week of work. I don’t think I’ve been away from my desk for more than about 15 minutes at any one time, so I don’t have to any riding to tell you about from my personal point of view. Ooo!

Blog: October 13. Farewell TrailZone

And for the first time ever my Klim suit leaked. It does have a few holes in it, so it’ll have to be replaced. I was on a current model BMW F800GSA, so the bike and terrain were fabulous, and I was…

Blog: October 6. Back to basics.

I found a job lot of Australasian Dirt Bike magazines on a website and they’ve just arrived. These issues range from 1980 to 1983, and as I approach my 22nd year in publishing, I still firmly believe it was these magazines, from this era, that began my love of magazines. Since then I’ve moved into a more focussed fascination for the business of magazines, but it was these mags that first made me realise the…
