Hi Everyone,

Just sharing where I am up to with my place, after a couple of months of growth to let all the winter grasses so to seed. Today was the day to fire up the Fergy and spread the seed for next year so back to mowing regularly for a while, at least the Fergy does it easy cutting 5 feet at a time and plenty of power to move obstacles around.

After parking the tractor and a cold drink, a familiar face rolled in the driveway with a big grin asking to have a look in my bike shed. So after the tour and comparing notes on several bikes, we decided to have a ride. Interestingly he wanted to ride the :suzuki Town Bike and what he described as the Blue Wavey Thing so who am I to disagree?

Perhaps I made it too Hard? Maybe I should have given more Clues? Or did I just get it wrrrrrrrr..wrrrrrrrr. ..wr ong?

I was thinking: How hard can it be, how many people can jump on the :suzuki Town Bike (remember she is in her 40s now) and ride the :sherco SURF? Can't be that many but on closer inspection, it seems he had his eyes Closed? So it must be Easy?

It's probably just that the photo does not show much of the person's facial features. However I did just notice the modern Bell MX helmet, which is probably a good clue for someone who knows him


relax, nothing is under control

Hi Greg.
No frame number, but may have stripped the tank to plain alloy.
Was thinking of fitting it to my old James, at the time.

Just found a couple of pics, when I got it.

David, It was not intentional to make it confusing but the riding gear is NOT a good clue. My riding pants with boots, gloves and helmet all belonging to Donna. So I am thinking the Fearless Young Fellow wants to join Team Hardwood?

Shane, I definitely don't have your :suzuki RL as all of mine have steel tanks and I think yours is an Exacta? Hunt it down and get it Back!
Anyway, here is Dan on the old Girl today:

Hey Greg,

I certainly wouldn't describe myself as fearless, as you can see from that picture.

I think that particular photo was the first time over the Blue Wave and i had just reached what can only be described as the wipe out point of the obstacle. You have certainly succeeded in your goal to make an awkward obstacle to ride.

It was a great days riding, thanks for the lend of motorcycle and gear.
Stumps for me came up trumps in the sections.

I would have replied earlier but i was too busy practicing riding along logs to get on the interwebs.
