    Think I spotted you on Zelling St the other day. You were stopped on the side of the road. I stopped (in the VW Tiguan) to check you were ok.

    Congratulations. Someone said to me years ago when I was on my Ls, "when you go shopping on you bike, you know you're a real mototcyclists".

    Well done! I still get a kick out of parking for free when everyone else is paying. And riding too of course!

    Cheers Rob! and Stu thanks for the tip!

    Rode up Mt Stromlo and back with Dan (Another CR member), such an awesome feeling! saw a few riders out on the street today! all nodding at us :D such a cool feeling I must admit, just adds more confidence, i stalled my bike almost at the top of mount stromlo a rider who happened to be passing by stopped and he was waiting till i regained myself and was able to move off safely such a cool dude!

    I think I saw you as I headed out on the Cotter, there certainly was a lot of riders out. Glad you had fun!
