Blog: September 28. Getting old. The bike. Not me.

It’s Sunday and I’m sitting at my desk nursing my knees. They feel like they’ve been hit with lumps of wood. I raced my little Suzuki yesterday and had a great time, but it was tough going. Craig Murcott did his usual brilliance with some fabrication, including moving the footpegs well back as I requested.

Blog: September 7. The new disc is out

It’s an overcast Sunday afternoon and although I haven’t done any riding this week, there’s a few things to discuss. First up, volume three of the new DualSport Australia discs is done and Marty has sold about half the first pressing.
