    Went for a lunch run with some friends yesterday on the ZZR250. Did an easy 162Km and am impressed at how good the little bike sits on the road. I think that with a bigger screen and some higher bars that I could do some big K's on this bike.

    The latest wander involved the CF Moto and a three day wander to the Moto GP at Phillip Island. Went down the Putty road, across the Bell's road to Lithgow and on to Oberon for the night. Next day to Goulburn, Braidwood and down the Brown mountain to Batemans Bay and on to Bermigue for the night. Followed the coast around to Eden where I joined the Prince's Highway to Sale. Next day went to museum at Maffra before heading into Melbourne. Down to P I next morning dodging the rain showers and very cold at the track. Was great to see and hear the Moto 3's flat down the straight.
    Left Melbourne Monday morning after what I thought was 'peak hour' but still got in the traffic 'dog fight'. Turned off the highway and went Kyneton, Heathcote, Shepparton to Cobram for the night. Up to Jerilderie, Narrandera, West Wyalong through to Peak Hill where my bum cried enough for the day. Next morning home through Dubbo, Coonabarabran, Gunnedah and home. 8 days on the road and 3,172Km. The CF didn't miss a beat and apart from being covered in insects is ready to go again, but will let my ar*e recover first.

    The bike park at the Island. Cost $10.00 to park but they gave you a piece of plywood to put under the stand.

    Went to visit my youngest grandson for his birthday and give him the toys I've been restoring (https://2fiftycc.com/index.php?threads/other-stuff-ive-been-doing-lately.10266/). Packed the CF Moto and off early morning. Few stops on way and arrived for lunch and unwrapping. Couple of days with family and home again. Another 1,000Km added to the speedo.
    Smoke from fires from top of Richmond ranges.

    I have been using a gell pad on the seat but find that it only helps for a while before my bum gets sore again. It also doesn't breathe and causes a sweaty patch that bought on a rash on the Phillip Island ride. It might be ok with the sheepskin over the top, but didn't find a big improvement on it's own.
