It's been a bastard of a week culminating with the enormous shit-storm that this buggered Stelvio I'm stuck with is turning into. On Teusday I have to go in to find out if I've got something seriously amiss with my insides and I can't eat for the next couple of days followed by a day of heavy duty laxatives!

I'm so over it it isn't funny! I'm going to fire up the big green torpedo and go for a ride. The sun is out and the roads are beckoning!

I hear you. It's a beautiful day. Perfect riding weather.


I'm sure your insides  will be good.

If all else fails, go for a ride, never fails to clear the head and make you smile

Do the ride Pete, you deserve it.
Or anything else that you REALLY enjoy.
Take a day or three away, recover, refresh.

None of us are brand new anymore, look after your good self.

After the ride ...........................
Ya can't eat, but ya can drink right. So there are two activities that will refresh/relax ya mind.

Best wishes Pete!

What grisorosso said. Everyone needs more frequent mental-health refresh rides as the years roll by. And at my age I should know. Just enjoy the day mate.

Looking back towards Canberra you can see the telecom tower on the hill.

It's not a fast road but there are plenty of tight corners!

The country is outrageously green and pretty at the moment!

And Wee Jasper it self is charming....

When I got back to Bungendore my fuel light came on. I'd filled up in Queanbeyan on the way out and from full to 'light on' which is within a bee's dick of 12.5 litres got me 227.5km! No, I wasn't riding hard, just bimbling and sniffing the roses but that's pretty nice economy.

With regard to the 2nd last photo, I hope that sign isn't suggesting you ride a "beached" whale Pete.

Enjoyed the pics Pete. last time I rode through Wee Jasper was on my Shiver travelling south to Melbourne and over to Tasmania in 2011 - met quite a few sheep (4 legged kind) on the road back then.

Nice pix, Pete.  Beeyooteeful countryside.  We won't see that sort of weather again until late next April.

Such rides do clear one's head; good for you for "self-medicating.  cheers

Have to ask about that first pic.

What are the two mounts/gizmos ... at left and center of bars?

And, surely that isn't rust on the left one!?  No Very Happy

Bill, the gizmo on the left bar is the controller for the crappy Oxford heated grips. They're pretty ordinary but they're better than nothing. The central thing is a mount for my phone but I only ever use it if I'm using it as a GPS.

As I've said before it gets bloody cold here in winter, what with arthritis in joints, especially my hands, becoming an issue in winter heated grips and a Gerbings heated jacket and gloves are my bestest friends from about April to September!

Just feed the need.

That's some nice country. Reminds me of hill country between Fresno and Oakhurst on the way to Yosemite. Hope that healing ride did it's magic.

Great pics - not jealous at all. I've never had heated grips and from what you and others are saying, I think I am going to just sort a connection and go for heated gloves instead.

Hope you are feeling better inside too!

Be careful with the heated gloves. My Gerbings have hot spots just where the crease of your hand meets the fingers, and you can get burns from them. I just use a plaster from the first aid kit where it happens.

If anything mine aren't hot enough! Hence the grips to supplement them.

Best of luck with your insides Petey. Don't ride too much on an empty stomach, personally, it makes me all fidgety.

All went well actually. Surprisingly hassle free and painless. Turns out I have a beautiful, gleaming bowel with nothing serious wrong with it. They knocked off a couple of polyps and found a small lesion which was the source of the bleeding, sorted that and I'm now good to go. Golly I was hungry by the end of it! Very Happy
