My “Orange” is my 2006”R”, picture on my CP page. It’s waiting for an output shaft bearing, but has accumulated 130,000 miles.

It’s my turn to run the death star this week.



The best part is I can blow up the car park camera and gaze at my bike all night.



I’m so bored haha

I buzzed my workmate going back to the camp after night shift this morning. He didn’t see me coming up behind him probably because he was putting along in his little farm truck, dreaming about playing golf or fishing or something, he’s a bit older. He said he didn’t shit his pants until I was about 100 metres past him, haha I was moving at a good pace.

Speaking of shit, I have noticed a lot of kangaroo shit outside my room at the camp. They must be coming into the camp at night and feeding on the green grass they water there. They like that fresh green pick. I believe this why a lot of them get hit on the road. The councils here mow the grass on the sides of the highways for our safety, so you can see any wildlife on the verge easier. But when it rains that’s the first place in the bush the fresh new green grass comes through which attracts the bloody things. It’s crazy, personally I think they should be grading the sides of the highways not mowing it, but that probably costs them to much.

It’s my last shift tonight, back to the camp for a sleep in the morning. Set the alarm for 11am, should be on the road by 11:30am. Might go home a different way, it adds a little more time but the road has less bumps and potholes. Should be home around 3:30-4pm.

Acorn nuts, used black rubber hose instead of the stainless spacers.

My workshop assistant Murphy. He’s good company but loud pipes aren’t going to save his life, he’s as deaf as a post.

I’m just going to drop this here.

This is one of my brother-in-laws bikes, David James of East Sussex ..
1967 350 Harley Davidson Aermacchi Ala d’Oro, fully restored, but never raced in its restored state, as David died of a brain tumour before he had the chance. David was well known in classic bike racing around England racing this bike and a Norton 350 Manx. He raced in the Isle of Man classic TT and also had the privilege of racing classics with the legend Barry Sheene.
R.I.P. David.
