A right royal pox-ridden shit of a day - AGAIN.

Fer crying out loud, it's supposed to be summer and not the middle of a rainy, stormy winter - for fucks sake!

Made the decision to ride this morning, only for the monsoon to start within minutes, and it hasn't let up since. So I took the tin top, only to get soaked running the 100 metres from my car park to my office. Damn!

Just a moment.

I need to grab a tissue to dab away my tears.

Here's my reality.

Actually, I happen to be in Atlanta, some 600 or so miles south of that scene this moment.  Here, forsythia is in bloom and daffodils are up and thinking about popping.  But, in a few days, when I get back to that snowy scene at the top of Virginia, the lows at night will hit single digits, with highs only marginally better, and all making Fahrenheit into another F word.  No

Seriously, it does make one feel cheated when bad weather in summer curtails riding.  So, best wishes for a drying out and a great ride to celebrate.

Cheers, Bill. At least with your scenery you could get a light trail bike out and have some fun...

I got a half inch of rain yesterday. That's it for the next six months.

OK folks - today is sunny (well so far) bike is awesome (logs later today, Mark). Was hammering along in top gear and just went through 190, when the back of my head said "OK that's enough for now" so I backed off to 110.

3 seconds later, a cop car came the other way - SHIT! that was close, nearly got Ropered! Speed limit was 100, and he kept going the other way. Lucky me...

Still pulling strongly though - must be mighty close, Mark.

Then today I got pulled in the fucking Jimny for Christ's sakes! "Do you realise you were going 107 KPH Sir? The limit is 100!"

No, he didn't book me but he wasted fifteen minutes of my life giving me the Constable Clownshoes lecture. Fuck me? Did I shoot a chinaman or something???

I think I'll take op smuggling drugs in Indonesia, it's less risky than driving or riding!

Pricks!

Was it the Feds? Or just the corrupt locals?

107?? Fair dinkum? That's ridiculous. He must have missed out on a root last night.

The Jimny goes that fast? Wow.

I remember years ago a cousin of mine had a hotted up Ford Transit (original motor was a V4 slug in front - he transplanted the 250 2V 6 cyl out of a later model falcon, and the thing did get up and boogey) when he got pulled over between Goulburn and Marulan at over 100mph. When asked why he was doing such a speed, my cousin responded with "I was going how fast? In this? Wow, must be the fastest Transit around". Cop with so impressed with the fake surprise he let him off!

That was before radar and when common sense sometimes found its way into real applications. Bring back the good ole days - I think...

Never mind Pete, only one more to go - don't do anything stupid.

I prolly wouldn't hold very long to my license in your neck of the wood. Crying or Very sad
107kph in a 100 zone is not even 5 miles above the speed limit.
Pricklets!!

I have to get on board with grisonut. I can't live in Stralya.
I would be the guy AC/DC sings about in Nervous Shakedown.
