Time for a service…

Howdy all, this weekend we had a road trip to the Gold Coast to get me serviced and get me a new back tyre (plus it was an excuse for a weekend away)…….

Due to the time that we left for our weekend away, and the distance involved…..and the fact that Anthony & Vicki had luggage to carry and would possibly be bringing stuff back with them….we took the car with me on a trailer – and off we went first thing Saturday morning.

This is what my rear tyre looked like before we left…..

As you can imagin, the new one looks (and performs) much better!!   So now I’m all ready to go for another week and ready for another 6000km!

Last Tuesday we had another wet ride back from Grafton and for some reason, Anthony’s protective clothing wasn’t providing the waterproofing abilities that it should and hopefully coating it in some water repellent spray will help!

So as a result of the massive downpour, he was sitting in a puddle most of the way home….I was wet too, but I’m a bike so its ok. It would be nice to have a whole week of fine weather this week.

This weeks winner of Derbi’s Celebrity Pillion Passenger of the week is Canadian. Born in Vancouver in 1988, she is an actress and singer.  These days she plays the role of Adrianna Tate-Duncan on the TV series “90210” where she plays a teenage, former junkie, pregnant high school student/actress.  Say hello to Jessica Lowndes.
