New Bike count down

Well guys Looks like next Monday for the new bike delivery.
I was hoping for this week. That will make four weeks since I've been able to ride AHHHH!! It's killing me.
Last new bike I got "only 7 weeks ago" I did 2500km in 3 weeks. Sounds like some LT riders do that before morning tea! I'll do my best but can't make any promises.

I will however post some pictures when the bike arrives.

Six Days, 8 hours, 14 min, _________ not that I'm counting.

I'l be waiting for my happy snaps Dezrae. What's the new job you have that you get four days of, and can I get a job there as well?

Catch you all later Nick

Seems it's not so much a count down as a count up!!!

I've been told I now won't get my dream machine till the following monday.

I'm not very good at this waiting thing.

I know the feeling.
Haven't been able to ride for almost a month. "NO BIKE"
Well I've had a few test rides.
As soon as the new bike arrives Cath and I are heading down to Stanthorpe. It's around 450klm from here and if you go the back way there are lots of great roads.
We went there about 6 months ago. Spent a day visiting winerys and one of the national parks. Should be even better on the LT.

Enjoy the ride to Paronella Park. I'll be expecting some of those happy snaps.
