Welcome to another week on two wheels. This morning’s ride was great….the temperature was perfect, there were no Grey Nomads in their Land Cruisers or Patrols towing their Jayco’s out of town…..and it was great to be out on the road.
And coming home was awesome too, Anthony had a long day of training at work today, and so his brain was pretty fried by the time he walked out the back door of the office, but as soon as that helmet was on and the iPod was cranking, all was right with the world and off we went. And it was a great ride home.
Each corner was taken with precision and determination. Yes, the road is not a race-track, but each day there is a chance to make the most of each turn and enjoy the road. Anthony’s ability is increasing all the time, and to be able to help him with that is so great.
Also over the weekend Vicki had a wedding that she shot in Yamba, and one of the groomsmen was a motorcycle drag racer – but not just any drag racer, he’s a world land speed record holder and recorded a record speed at the Bonneville Salt Flats during Speed Week 2009…….yep this guy got his Suzuki up to a speed of 212.404mph (339.84 kmh) – and he is one of only 4 people on the planet to have broken the 200mph barrier on a 750cc bike in the past 60 years. Well done to Greg Watters.
So that’s it so far for this week….i’m sure we’ll have more stories to tell soon. Stay safe, keep the rubber side down and have fun!!
This week’s winner(s) of Derbi’s Celebrity Pillion Passenger of the Week are a group of four women and part of one of the most popular products out there in the world of motor-sport….
We have previously featured girls who are at the very pinnacle of their profession (the girls of the Rizla Suzuki MotoGP team) but this week we have another group of girls who’s team is one of the sponsors of the Mercedes Petronas team ……yes the team that 7-time world champion Michael Schumacher is now a member of.
Anthony is a fan of the product they represent and the people they sponsor – whether its Schuey’s team, Chad Reed’s Kawasaki Supercross team, Ken Block’s WRC car…….or anything else that they are a part of.
These girls represent a great product and so today we present the girls from Monster Energy….
