cruised into sydney with all the aploumb that a k bike deserves after a 1000 k run

after a pretty cool night of some solid riding (rain from kempsy south to buladelah)

made sydney by 5.00 am and southern liverpool by 6.10 bugga outby 10 minutes ...

made the event by 10.00 for a 10.30 start .....

all verry sad stuff lots of tears were shed

heading out to see rt tommorrow some time .....

and some concideration of the return leg some time in the next couple of days

and yes your rt was mighty cold down here ....even stopped to find some cardboard to wrap around my ankles ,under the wets to ward off the coolness

thanks for the thoughts guys ......appreciated

and yes my daughters support was most welcome ....must remember a special hugg for her efforts .

An epic midnight ride - I shall have to award you this, Charlie.....

It's not cast Iron...Bronzed in fact and came to me from the antipodies, so it seems fitting.

It came with a bottle of Bourbon but you've no chance of you getting any of that unplanned trips and rides  22936

Now you know why I'm keeping my lower fairings for the cool season, there's noting like tucking the balls of your feet your feet up on the pegs out of the breeze and wet!

Condolences Chas on your loss but congrats on the safe long ride .
Isn't this forum amazing ? It continues to give us life emotions and feelings for others that we (mostly ) only " know " here .
We have had sickness and bereavement , care for each other and humour even in adversity . Having met Charlie i have this image of him rummaging through a dumpster or wheelie bin for cardboard ! Oh for a photo of that .
Go well mate , thinking of you and your family .

Wash your mouth out Saxon old boy
it is the bestest of bikes there is
not only is it a Kawasaki 800 Vulcan, it is my neighbours' who won't ride it and won't sell it but pays me for the
Rego etc and to keep the thing mobile. When I feel like being lazy and need to stretch my legs out I take it for a run where there are no corners or gravel. That's my chick puller, although that hasn't worked yet.

Smashing pics there Charlie, I love the menacing sky in the first one, great capture.

I'm quite taken with the neat bag on the pillion - I assume it's a waterproof?

I've been following the weather reports from Brissy area, Charlie. "Softball sized hail" reported in the area. One report said some 9cm-wide stones fell, but a lot of them were 4 to 6 cm across, power out for 100,000, trees stripped of leaves, vehicles damaged and the airport closed for a while...another beaut day in Queensland.

"C'est bizzare! Non?" usually you find things that shape and size under chooks! You wouldn't want to be out riding in it.

Did you take those lightning pics yourself Charlie? If so ....amazing!

Very interesting bit about the Vulcan......

I have a friend in US who some time back sent me a photo of his daughter...who was getting married. In the corner I saw what looked like something nice.....a K1200S. Same story, belonged to a neighbour 'who no longer uses it'. I think five years he is 'minding' it, ensuring it is kept in perfect order. He is planning on coming to Ireland to track north and suggested a bike swap. Worth exploring......so I get a K1200S to go up east coast USA....

When I was 19 I had a friend who turned up one day on a new black boxer when they were twice the price of a Honda CB750-4. 'I am minding a summer house for someone and I have to keep the bike serviced' lark.

I have a big shed, all thats in it at the moment is my K..and my sons Honda Bros which "I am keeping in order for him"........Anyone want to 'store' a Ferrari or such like?????
