Where did that fog come from?

After weeks of hot rides to work, today we had something different…..thick fog!!   So thick in fact that it was difficult to see the vehicles in front of us.   But despite the lack of visibility, the cooler temp was much better!  My new tyre performed really well….and I’m definitely sure that Anthony appreciated the extra rubber on the road as well.

So what’s happening this week?   We’ll have our usual rides to work, and that’s always good fun.

In the racing world we have had World Superbike testing at Phillip Island, with Michael Fabrizio from the Xerox Ducati team coming out on top.  Haga and Biaggi were also in the top ten.

Aussie’s finished 13th – (Troy Corser  – BMW) 16th – (Chris Vermeulen – Kawasaki), 19th (Andrew Pitt – BMW) and 20th (Josh Brookes -Honda)

Tonight Anthony has been mucking around with a demo version of Pixelmator and decided to use some image filters on some photos, and as this is a bike blog, why not use some of the photos from the weekend, so here they are…..

BMW S100orr

Ducati Desmocedici RR

Suzuki Gladius

Triumph Street Triple

And somewhere in there is a Yamaha VMAX

That’s it from me today, hope you all have a good week….ride safe and enjoy the road.

And once again to finish off the blog post we have Derbi’s Celebrity Pillion Passenger….and tonight we have a singer from the US.  She was a finalist in season 7 of American Idol, finishing in 6th place.  She was born in Dublin in 1983, is married to a tattoo shop owner (Todd Smithson of “Nothing Sacred”) and is the singer of  “We Are The Fallen” a new rock band featuring former members of Evanescence (including founding member Ben Moody)  She is Carly Smithson.
