    He he, my son had the same problem as we didn't realise it's still getting dark early. Had to ride back with his visor up - thankfully wasn't hungry when he got home as he ate enough bugs on the way home. They were out in force - summer is definitely on the way.
    I know the feeling, I had a few in my helmet as well!

    I post this every year, can't believe people are still doing that and I even posted a reminder on the Wednesday night meet up thread a week before this thread started.
    Face palm is right... not a big deal I guess, just saying is all... and it gets cold too a lot of evenings this time of year, pack that extra layer.
    www.remotemoto.com has finally arrived!

    Geeze, the seasons barely started and already the flames are up to my ankles..

    You better believe it nanny Tranny (didn't see your informational posting on the other thread - perhaps posting in this thread would be the go next year). Will be prepared for next week...

    .. and thanks to all those who offered loan helmets... even if they didn't belong to them lol.

    Bout $400 if you buy in NZ.. the exchange rate isn't so good right now, so you'll only save about $40 buying from the states instead.

    Yea man, I think my early vids should be in some kind of museum or something tho the crank handle was useful for hitting smartarses over the head with ...
    As for the $25, all I can say is depreciation!

    Was nice to be on a bike again huh? I've really missed it. As for your speed, what's new? I've always had trouble keeping up with you even when you were on your 250 but now, well, we'll never see each other apart from the beginning and end of the rides

    Sadly not anytime soon - the WOF on my bike expired a few months back, and it needs a bunch of work to get a new one, so I'm saving up, but it'll probably be a while before it's back on the road.

    God yes! Bike is awesome and have spent the last couple of months building up the confidence. Oh I remember a few times that you have overtaken me when I was going really slow (yeah me, slow!)

    Bugger Buyusta, hope you get back to us soon!

    That's right, no names lol.

    So to anyone heading to the ride on Wednesday - heed Transalpers advice, and my (and Freespaceage's son) bad visor experiences, and use or take a clear visor /sunnies on the rides. OK? End of.
    These aren't the bikes we're looking for....
