Winter doldrums

So, we are in the depths of winter here in Canberra, and whilst its not been an especially cold winter, it’s certainly been exceedingly wet (like record breaking levels of wet) which have lead to not much riding at all. I had to replace my battery as it finally gave up the ghost from not being used most days out of the week, and that’s probably the most exciting thing that has happened to poor Stella. And my heated grips controller came unstuck, but that’s an easy fix. 

I have actually been looking into the world of vlogging (out of boredom perhaps?) and even purchased an action cam with the plan of recording some rides (but to do so I have to actually go riding lol) but I screwed up and didn’t get one I could plug a mic into. Sooooo, back to the drawing board and youtube reviews. I will pop up a review on the new little camera soon though, as I’m pretty impressed with it. 

In other news though, Stella will soon have some new roads to travel – justanothergirl is moving! Its time to start preparing for a large interstate move involving a houseful of stuff, plus several motorcycles and one car. Any tips appreciated! 

Lots of flashback pics going up on instagram – give me a like to remind me to get out there more. I miss hot summer days and long hours of riding……

Take care everyone. I hope my American readers are enjoying their rather balmy summer!

So……I know I’ve been slack and not been posting anything or even really been in the sphere of bloggers lately. I could list my excuses, but it won’t change that overall. However, I can happily report I have been doing things of absolutely no interest when it comes to riding. Nada, zilch. Its been very quiet on that front.

Which is probably a major factor around yesterdays surprise purchase. Continue reading

Repost from MHRSF: Yet another night in Sydney

I had another blog that I used for a trip around Amsterdam, Germany and Prague, and that I used to start cataloguing my frequent stays in hotels. Sadly, I am also forgetful, and this blog went by the wayside after I got JAGOAM up. But, I rediscovered it the other day and feel as though this one belongs here as well.

So for my recent birthday the fabulous OH brought me tickets to see a Soundwave Sidewave starring Korn and Rob Zombie, bands I was mad about in my teens.  I’m young enough that they’re not scary to see on stage, but old enough that I wish I had been 18 in the late 90s to see them in their prime. Anywho, the gig was at the Big Top in Luna Park, a place immortal which I have never visited. I was very excited🙂 so it was off to Syd, taking the bikes the long way to expand upon the holiday feel. Out of Canberra down the Clyde to Batesman Bay, turning north up towards Nowra with the tyres sticky and the tail pack bobbing. Continue reading
