Wet, Wet, Wednesday

Hi all,

Hope your ride today was a good one…..but if you were anywhere between the NSW-QLD border and Port Macquarie, it was pretty miserable.   Initially we went to Maclean, and the further away from Yamba we got, the worse the weather was.  We then headed back to Yamba mid morning, and it was really wet most of the way…..so wet that Anthony’s “waterproof” gloves started leaking.  Then for the short ride home, it started again.

Then there was the guy in the SUV who decided to move close to the centre line and hit the massive puddle that generated what was close to a massive wave that ended up hitting us head on….well done cruiser man!

The weather is expected to be a bit ugly for a few days, so we’ll see what we get in the morning.

So what’s been happening in the two wheeled world?

The Roman Emperor, Mr Max Biaggi is on fire in the World Superbike championship, pulling two wins in the weekends round in Utah.   Anthony always thought Max was a complete Tool when he raced in MotoGP, but his admiration for him has grown, and in such a short time, Max has managed to make the Aprilia RSV4 Factory the bike to be on!  Go Max….

One website we enjoy checking out each week is Killboy’s Blog.  Filled with awesome photos from the “Tail of The Dragon” at Deals Gap in the USA….the bike pics are awesome…check it out.

This week’s Celebrity Pillion Passenger of the week is a British actress on her way to stardom.  She’s starred in “Quantum of Solace”, “Clash of the Titans” and most recently  “Prince of Persia”.  She’s 24, she’s the daughter of a cleaner and a welder, She is Gemma Arterton.

    Hahaha – we’ve been getting your second-hand eastern seaboard weather for the last few days Anthony, with bonnet-deep flooding only a few km from us so no riding yet this week!

    You mention the Aprilia RSV 4. One passed us when we were out in my wife’s convertible last Sunday. I had never seen or heard one before and the noise made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up – sounded like a Moto GP bike!

    Impeccable taste as ever with the photograph…

    Hey Geoff, the weather is just as ugly here today as yesterday, and unfortunately is going to be hanging around for longer…..

    Yes the Aprilia is an awesome (and expensive) piece of machinery….interesting that you mention that it sounds like a motogp bike because in the most recent issue of Rapid Bikes Magazine they have their 1000cc superbike comparison, and they describe the RSV4 as basically a MotoGP bike with headlights.
