    The Himalayan wasnt the best to look at, but was probably closest to my kind of bike (I cut my teeth on an XL500 and owned an early BM GS for a while). 1518179569165.jpg

    But I could park one of these in my lounge room..

    I rode a proper Enfield once in my youth. Unreliable, uncomfortable but had a sort of mystic about it. Been interested in the Royal Enfields ever since the Indians started making them. From all reports the early ones were rubbish but now it seems they are up there with the best. Would love it if someone would revive the BSA Gold Star. That was a bike to lust after.

    There’s an Aussie I know named Andrew who makes these awesome videos of him doing covers of bluegrass and Texas type stuff. Has a killer version of some filler music from The Beverly Hillbillies. Is he among you fine, upside down folks? :)

    yep another stinker up here... 35C and the air is so thick/humid it feels like walking through soup....:lol:

    I was sitting at the table this morning doing a restring under the ceiling fan...sweat was dripping off my face onto the guitar and my shrit was saturated.... whew, hard work restringing guitars....:rolleyes:

    34 degrees here today, and yesterday, and the day before that, getting a bit monotonous.dogs flaked out on the tiles in the laundry, fans going full blast. I did a truss rod adjustment on one of my Teles that has a barometer neck, it changes with every change in the weather. Last time I set it, tightened it, the temp was 15 degrees, 34 degrees and I have to loosen it off again. The physical effort of turning the Allan key half a turn got my shrit all wet and brumched. Even my cargo shorts were soaked.

    Cooler today.. we had a band practice penciled in, but the drummer phoned in crook so we called it off...

    grrr.. I was keen to have a play....

    what the hell, I'll get the Bass out and play to the band in my head....:twisted:

    Plugged it into my super 210/+cab using my tele settings, instead of my Bass amp,.. out of laziness......... same house volume, drive channel and reverb.... to see how it sounded...

    noodled away practicing my patterns...The Bass sounds damn good through the 210 ..:):cool:

    It's raining, men. Hallelujah! We've had nearly 10mm since 5pm and it doesn't look like stopping soon. Good steady rain.

    I was tossing up between racing home to mow before the rain, or putting it off because it was going to rain. The latter won out because it started as soon as I got home.

    Rain from Stanthorpe north and rain from Armidale south. We’re stuck in the middle and apart from one shower - nothing. Didn’t bother to rearrange the dust on what used to be lawn. Tomorrow’s forecast look more promising, at least it will be cooler, 22 degrees.

    90 mm of rain here up to 9 am this morning, although it sounded last night like 80mm fell in one five minute period. Bucketed down. Rain all day today, so I'm indoors playing with guitars :)

    Looks like it is moving down from you to us w3stie, should get it tomorrow, ground is so dry though that most will probably bounce back up. Went down to Ballina today, rain all the way down and all the way back, patchy but good.
