    That is so far off my radar, I was making it up for April! I'll say I'm coming. I'm sure someone will remind me. Zxr250C, Across or something...

    Was just pondering what transpired on my last trip to Texas.
    Had to take out a second loan on the house to simply cover my fuel bill
    My trusty steed.....zzr600 is running much more economically ...thank god!!
    The house on the Sunshine coast sold just prior to Christmas
    Now settling in to townhouse in Brisbane.
    Looking forward to catching up with old friends....it's been awhile

    Not sure if I'll make this one. Not taking the CBX250 learnt that lesson on the Coffs ride, just not quite enough power to sit comfortably on the highway even with my skinny ass on it.

    I'm retiring the current engine in my RX7 so if that sells within the next 4 weeks I might pick something up but it'll be pretty close. Not going to promise anything but there's always a possibility.

    Mick is on long service leave from work for 2 months driving around SA with his dad somewhere, don't think he'll be back by the 19th.
