My reasons for quitting are my own, but include having done the job for a while, and having had enough of it. I...

Recent trip to Phillip Island, on the ZZR1200. The trip was 8000km. Front: PR5 Rear: PR2. This turned out to be a very good combination. My son ...

Re: Dehydration

Good post, Bruce, and timely with summer coming.
We did just that crossing back on the Eyre Hwy, making sure to drink plenty along the way, not just coffee.
We copped 38 degrees at Ceduna, which can be energy sapping.

Keith Snr was there soon after it happened, and Keith Jnr was there not long after that. As a result, he was taken to RPH. The ambos pu...
