Blog: April 7. Late.

The blog is late.

I’ve been in Victoria riding with the Triumph guys at an event called Touratech Travel, and thanks to a sensational bike – the Tiger 800XC – and some rain, it was a brilliant ride.

I cocked up my flight bookings, though, and that meant I lost a day yesterday, and now I’m going like a cut cat trying to catch up. What a pain in the exhaust port!

I really don’t have much news and until I get my desk sorted I won’t be able to think straight. Here’s a couple of pics to give an idea of the ride.
