Son's not in a good mood, angry nobody wants to go cycling with him   :013:

This is a bloody great Bike....!

 :031: Floyd.

Amazing is man's pursuit of resources. At this location, rig was at a depth of 250 feet and her legs in 60 feet into the seabed.

Managed to remove dull faded bits of plastic for a respray.



First V1K wash after a while, found both side case below strips were loose. Removed the old glue and stuck some decal on.

Hi Rog,

The Rev'it Dominator 2 is holding well, though the plastic air vents have brittle off. Sewed them close back a while back and have been good. Still fully waterproof  :028:

Saw  Rev'it has the new Dominator 3 suit out - https://www.revitsport.com/en/motorcycle-jacket-dominator-3-gtx-black. Black really looks good.





Took a 4-hour ride this morning. Can't leave the state yet but see maybe interstate might be allowed in 2 weeks.











Today is vegan day, homemade and delicious  :001:

Steve the new Dominator 3 looks superb I hadn't seen that before, my Rev'it gear has served me well and continues to do so, as such I'll stick with it for now

I have seen these Halvarssons jackets which get good reviews

Hi Rog,

Looking back, my Dominator 2 now is 5 years old. Still good and functioning. How time flies. Prefer the dominator over other Rev'it jackets as the goretex is sewed in and it does not have a liner (due to the hot climate here).

That Halvarsson jacket does looks good  :169:

Some pics visited a small plant nursery to look for some pots and soil. Mini bonsai trees are really cute.























Son says Hi!  :002:

Interstate travel has been approved last Monday and was wonderful to ride further out enjoying the ride and sights.

Started early morning to a nice waterfall about 60 km from home. Chilling ice water swim which was  :028:







Did not stop much this time. Just kept riding the quiet backroads till the petrol marks came down and refill twice. Reached home about 1730 in the evening. My son will have to give me a massage tonight  :034: Weather was really hot and humid after downpours last week.

Trying on something.  :124: Have this chair gel seat cushion which is really comfy - https://shopee.com.my/Egg-Sitter-Gel-Flex-Seat-Cushion-Soft-Silicone-Honeycomb-Design-i.10933605.1528142649?sp_atk=cee91701-0b9b-493e-91ee-ae596f332bc5

Put it under the seat mesh cover and have been riding close by in town. Actually feels good and firm. Try it long-distance when have the chance. Gel is 30 cm thick but the honeycomb design compresses under the weight.
