.... change the scrolling count down banner every day without fail.

This is about all I will do, but not necessarily a daily update.

Only 20 sleeps until BMW Nigel, Moto Guzzi Martin and I hit the road.

Don't be ashamed of what you ride... Wot thuh :butt :well

I rode a BMW to the last one in Tassie and will be riding a different BMW to this one.
I can take the club number plate surround off the  :blk13 and put it on the R1200.
Do you think anyone will notice Nigel ?

I've just discovered that on the Saturday that we are at Mannum, DragonBoat SA is holding a regatta.    See  https://www.dragonboatsa.com/news-racing-events/upcoming-events/hat-regatta-2022-mannum/

I'm actually up for having a go on this.

I'm sure if I do it, I'll regret it later though.

I just rang to have my  :13Candy serviced at Bridgeland Motorcycles in Murray Bridge prior to the National Rally.

The first time I could get in was September 8.

Unless it is a minor issue and they have the capacity, they won't be able to do any service or tyres.

Cheers

Just been talking with my motorcycle man, he has some spare capacity next week (after he's finished with my ST1300).  Any excuse for ride is good; if it's a ride to Melbourne, it's better; to get your ST1300 serviced, even betterer.

Silly question.

Is the road down the western side of the river from Swan Reach to Mannum sealed all the way now? Last time I went through there (a few years ago now, I admit) most of it, at least from the Stott Highway at Swan Reach through to the Angus Valley Road west of Walkers Flat was dirt.
THERE ARE OLD RIDERS, AND THERE ARE BOLD RIDERS, BUT THERE ARE DAMN FEW OLD AND BOLD RIDERS.

Keep the dirty side down.

I just saw this on Facebook.

"The State Emergency Service has issued a flood advice message for the shack areas between Cadell and Mannum.

Areas that could experience minor flooding include Morgan, Brenda Park, Scotts Creek, Walker Flat and Bowhill.

Flows into South Australia are likely to exceed 60 gigalitres in two to three weeks and are expected to remain high for several weeks.

What you should do:

Follow your Emergency Plan now
Prepare your family and home for flooding in your area
Move items of value to a safe place
Regularly monitor river levels in your local area to avoid becoming isolated by floodwaters.
Camp on higher ground away from the river bank

For SES assistance phone 132 500. If the matter is life-threatening call 000 (triple zero).

The River Murray Flows Reports and mapping can be found: www.waterconnect.sa.gov.au/River-Murray"

The expected high water is two or three weeks away and should not have any impact on our activities.
