Short trip to Toowoomba

Hi Guy's
Cath & I went to Toowoomba for a ride on Saturday. Weather was great, no rain a bit of cloud cover temp mostly around 26c. A few photos below one of the beasty in the drive ready to go. Picture of my sweetheart having a drink break in Esk. One the way back from Toowoomba we stoped around 15klm from Hampton on the way back down to Esk. They have opened up some land for housing, It's a fair way from anywhere, meant for retirement and holiday houses. After our recent rains It looks beautiful, everything is green all the way from home to Toowoomba.
Took a couple of pictures of the land thats for sale. Cathy was ready to move there now. Picture of lt under a Jacaranda tree and one parked on one of the narrow laneways. I finally dragged Cath out of there and headed home. Stoped in Kilkoy for another drink break "2min" when a couple on a Harley went through. I gave them a big wave but was ignored "or not seen" anyhow felt the need to catch and pass said Harley. This was done around 10klm up the road, he was sitting on around 120, when I caught up he went to 140. I had to pass left him good in some long sweepers. Bike feels very nice at these speeds.
Back down to cruising speed for the rest of the trip home, did 450klm for the day and caught up with cathy's brother and sister in Toowoomba during the day. Can't wait for our Melbourne trip at Christmas. Three weeks on the road Whoohoo and no work to think about!!

Youre bike is a real treat. First I had to get used to the color of the bike (never seen it before) but it grows on you. Lovely colour, great pictures, happy missus
