“Sometimes you have to lose yourself ‘fore you can find anything”

Hi everyone,

It’s the end of another week and yesterday I got to go on the back road to Grafton TWICE!   Despite the cold there wasn’t any fog so it was good to take that route.

On the way back I decided to turn off Lawrence Road and head down Riverbank Road.  It’s a meandering goat track that (as the name implies) runs along the river bank of the Clarence River.    It feels a bit like “Deliverance” country, but it was a nice alternative to the normal Lawrence Road route…..

Lawrence Road is straight most of the way (as you can see from the photo above) but Riverbank Road was a nice change.  Its a road I’d only been on once before in the car, but didn’t really pay much attention to it.

Here are some other shots of the view along the way.

And here is yours truly waiting for the ferry…….

Cool bike of the week would have to be the new Ducati 848 EVO – 140hp of power….. plus Brembos, single sided swingarm, twin underseat exhaust…yep, its a sweet ride.  Would I want one?  ABSOLUTELY!  As About.com put it…they’ve taken a respectable middleweight “and made it lustworthy”

And finally there was a cool link that I found this week on the Roland Sands Blog, its a link to a Cycleworld video of an amazing flat-track Yamaha R1 custom bike.

Enjoy!!

Cheers,

Anthony

  1. A guy who gets to work on a bike PLUS a ferry crossing lives in a very special world!

    Hey, that flat-tracker is awesome. Ever since I saw a flat track Bonneville at a classic bike meeting earlier this year, building a flat-tracker as a project bike would be my #1 priority (if I wasn’t so busy actually riding!).

    Cheers Anthony!

  2. Yes Geoff, I’m pretty lucky!!

    As soon as I saw that flat-tracker I wanted it!! I love the way he backs it into the corners….

    Good luck with your project (when you get started!!) maybe you could turn the Street Triple into one like the German’s at Motorcorner did –
