Blog: October 30. A good weekend

Hello to everyone. It’s Sunday arvo and I’m a bit sunstruck. Work was steady all week, so it wasn’t until this morning I was able to drag the KLR out of the shed and take it for spin.

Blog: October 2. A good week

It’s Monday of the long weekend, and it’s mostly been a good week for me. It didn’t start too brilliantly when I had to bolt down to Sydney to pick up a Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled. The pressure of work was such that I decided to go down and back in a day. It’s an easy drive compared to 10 years ago, but it’s still not a lot of fun. But I ended up with…
