Get up, Get out, Have fun!!!!

Hi everyone,

It’s been a bit of a quiet time for me for the last couple of weeks……I have been off the road for a bit and looking forward to getting back out there next week!!!

We Googled “great motorbike rides australia” recently and number two search was IronChef’s “Motorcycle Paradise” Checkout his site – it’s awesome!!

One popular bike around the net at the moment is the Ducati Multistrada 1200.  Hell For Leather Magazine featured a story recently about the Ducati that got binned by a journalist who was testing the bike off road….not pretty!!  The Ducati seems to be awesome in Urban, Sport and Touring riding modes, but whether its Enduro mode allows it to be a true competitor for the BMW GS1200 Adventurer or the new Yamaha ZTZ Super Tenere 1200 remains to be seen….

Here’s a shot of it from the recent Gold Coast Motorcycle Expo….Personally I think it’s a sweet looking bike….

This example was shipped out especially from Italy for the expo….well done to Ducati Australia to organise that.

Today its also time to say G’day to a fellow two-wheeler who’s not only a great guy, but he also knows the best beers and where to find them!! …..but most importantly he’s is Anthony’s brother!  So let’s give it up for Gavin and his Suzuki GS500….Gavin moved from a 50cc Daelim scooter to the Suzuki last year.  It’s a sweet looking ride…(and Anthony is absolutely itching to have a go on it!!)  Have an awesome day tomorrow Gav – you are awesome dude!!!

While scouring through the photos on the Mac recently, I came across the following one.  It was taken by Vicki one fine Sunday afternoon when we were out for a ride around the southern end of the Gold Coast.  This shot was taken up on the hill above Kirra point.  The camo-clad guy chilling out in the background under the Rusty Eagle is Anthony, and I’m loving the way that I look in this shot….Vicki, you are so incredible, and your photography, your talent and creativity and your ability to capture images and emotions is truly awesome, inspiring and a work of art…. We love you!!!!

So that’s it from me this week, have a good one and we’ll see you out there soon…..

This weeks winner of Derbi’s Celebrity Pillion Passenger is an American NCAA Basketball player and 2006 American Idol Finalist. She is the daughter of a US Senator, and TV reporter.    She has been an actress, she is the 6th highest basketball scorer in Massachusetts basketball history, (male or female).  She is 21 years old, and has a NICE pair of boots….she is Ayla Brown.

    Fantastic photos as ever Anthony. Sorry to say that your scooter failed to mention the significance of the rusty eagle which is my personal favourite. Is it an emblem of the local fauna?

    Cheers

    Hi Geoff, the “Rusty Eagle” does have an official name, but I’m not sure what it is……Its a statue that overlooks the beach at Kirra Point, Qld (on the Gold Coast) Its been there for years, and was rusty when it was first built.

    Its also one of the places where Vicki and I used to take the bike for a ride on a sunday afternoon to sit and watch the world go by, so it has special significance.

    Here it is from another angle…. https://anthonyparker.files.wordpress.com/2010/03/rustyeagle.jpg

    I’ve always thought it was a good place for a pub, and there’s only one name it could have!! 🙂

    Cheers,

    Anthony
