The week is coming to an end…

Hi All,

It’s been a good week out on the road, and Anthony is very happy with the new thermal gear to keep him warm!!… Thumbs up for that!

Today we had a short trip, but it was still good to be out in the fresh air having a ride!

So what’s been happening out there in the two wheeled world?  One of the most eagerly awaited bikes (well, awaited by Anthony…) is the soon to be released Honda CB1100F.  Set to be arrive at the end of the month, this bike with its 1140cc inline four-cylinder engine and dual overhead cams is classic perfection.  Combining vintage looks with modern features, this is one bike that is sure to be popular……(and yes, Anthony would love to have one in the garage!)

In racing news….Moto GP heads to Le Mans in France this weekend to compete in the Monster Energy GP.  Hopefully Casey Stoner can recover from his not so great start to the year and gain some more points this weekend.   As for the top Yamaha riders, currently only 4 points separates Lorenzo (position 1) and Rossi (position 2)….who will come out in the lead?

World Superbikes head to the USA in 8 days to the Miller Motorsports park for the next round.  Can Mad Max and the Aprilia team gain the top spot from Suzuki’s Leon Haslam?  Will Haga be able to gain ground…he is alreay 101 points behind Biaggi.

Another new bike that Anthony is impressed with is the Suzuki GSX-R 1000 with its 999cc, four-cylinder, liquid-cooled, DOHC engine, featuring Suzuki’s Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) fuel-injection system…sounds cool, but the bike looks awesome, particularly in its 25th anniversary colours

So that’s it for us today, hopefully you’ve had a good one, stay safe, ride with a smile and get out there!!

Cheers

Derbi.

Its getting colder….

Hi all, It’s been cold on the road this week and to try and make things more comfortable, Anthony has some new thermal gear coming, and it should be arriving today, thanks to the excellent service from Bikebiz.

So we’ll update you on how it performs later in the week!

There have been plenty of bikes out this week, everything from chrome-covered cruisers to BMW 1200GS Adventurers, to Hayabusa’s and R1’s…..Everyone out enjoying the road!    The orange & chrome V-rod spotted on sunday was very cool!

This weeks winner of Derbi’s Celebrity Pillion Passenger of the week is a model, and a bike racer.   She’s a competitor in the Australian 125cc championship, she is Stacey McMahon

Short tuesday blog post…..

Hi everyone,

This week’s Grafton rides have been cold…..and foggy!!  Anthony loaded up with an extra layer today to keep him warm, but for me it was simply a case of suck it up and deal with it!  But that’s ok, because I’m a scooter and not able to add additional layers.

So how has the two-wheeled experience been for the rest of you?   We were lucky enough to leave the office after a storm rolled through Grafton, and thankfully the road was mostly dry by the time we left.

Tomorrow we are off on a shorter trip to Maclean, but it’s still a chance to get out on the road and ride.  Any chance to put the rubber side down is always good, so enjoy your rides and we’ll see you out there…

Cheers

Derbi
