Someone once told me that I should try dirt bike riding to improve my road riding.... I listened (for better or worse) and signed up for a day on the dirt. Today, in borrowed gear and on a...

So just had confirmation my finance is approved for another bike. Ducati 848, in white. 5400km, new tyres, fluids and belts inspected. I wont probably get it till next week as I have to kick in 1000 to keep the interest rate lower and I wont have that till next week.
As many will know it is the 20th Anniversary of Netrider, in its current Web guise at least, and one of the suggestions was a thread of photos of you and your bike or bikes, preferably out somewhere enjoying what we do rather than in a garage.
One picture per member.
Single picture of you and your bike.
If you generally ride with a partner a photo of you both with bikes would be...

The best bike ever…
What’s that bike that you forever regret selling… 10, 20 years on (yes, some of us are that old!)
That bike you wish you still had in the garage, that you could take out for a fast fang ….
The one bike… was the GPZ500S…. power to weight ratio, fantastic. Handling, fantastic. The places we went and things we did…. Fond memories indeed.
If you see something like this between 15th and 20th Feb around Bendigo, Eildon, Omeo, Mitta Mitta and Dunkeld, give it a nod, there's a good chance the old buzzard behind the wheel will wave back. If you see it parked outside a pub look me up I'll shout you a coldie.
So, I've done a couple of track days at Mallala and Mac Park (Mt Gambier). Mallala was pretty good, Mac Park was really fun. But, I was on the Continental GT so a bit under biked on the longer straights. Anyway, all good fun. However: a month or so ago I went to a Motard track day. Took my old DR250S with a pair of semi road tyres borrowed from the Mrs' XT. The Motards use a go kart track, a...
So, I rode to work yesterday from Homebush for the first time in anticipation of the industrial action by Sydney Trains. Left an hour early as I had an early morning meeting with our legal counsel. Took the ANZAC Bridge way, and for some reason I went up and over the Harbour Bridge and its dreaded lanes, and ended up in Kirribilli. I work at World Square and I can't figure out which lane to...

Was surfin' the web (I mean working on a project!) and saw this.. Looks mint!
I was happily riding home this evening knowing full well my bike needed petrol. Being a most of the time optimistic person I believed my pride & joy would carry me to the servo down the road from my house. Little did I know that wasn't going to happen & I probably should have filled up at one of the three servos I rode past.
Having never been on the bike when it was close to a coughing fit I...
With the talk of some people wanting a weekly night ride, lets kick things off with a Ride thought the Royal National Park. What makes this ride a little different is the Super Blue Blood Moon occurring on the 31st, this is a very rare event where 3 lunar phenomena all converge at the same time:
Super Moon - The moon will appear 30% larger and 30% brighter
Blue Moon - 2nd Full moon in any...
