I need to build my pack. Rack this weekend.  Then my prep is about done. Ill touch base with the courier on Monday to arrange getting him.up there. (See his time frame etc)  I don't want to be too long without my 50 down here. (You can guarantee if I sent it up tomorrow the weather here would be 25 degrees every day between now and then.

So lets all be honest here guys. Im a manly man from the deep south who enjoys swimming in snow melt waterfalls. 

Ya'll reckon I need to take my thermals ? Wearing decent Kevlar jeans & Jacket while riding with standard bogan gear underneath.

Just planning my bag packin

Rode home the other night with just a tshirt and my jacket sans winter liner was a bit nippy but nothing you southerners couldn't handle so she'll be right mate on the thermals front. Less stuff to bring.

Im fizzin to hang with you again @mark105 . Last time we hung out we smashed a 1L of coruba gold each and got fucked up

Pretty keen to see this happen again..... 

 

Been riding the vespa around quite a bit. Speedo stopped working tonight on my way to @Beavers place.

 

A 12 pack of 7% coruba doesn't quite fit in my side cabinet. But if a bummer.

Finally took mine for a decent ride. Pushing a lot of oil out of the top breather, little concerning. Burning some too. 

Picking up a backup engine next weekend just in case.
