Desmo Tests The V7 Moto Guzi Racer

Thu Jun 16, 2011 4:30 pm by Desmo

After a great ride on Queenies birthday with some from RSA and others who are not RSA but known from the days of the overclockers whom have moved from hideously high powered sports bikes to the awesome BMW multi functional ride that we know we should own but are just too cheap to invest in such technology. Monday was a fantastic day on two wheels MrsD and I enjoyed the ride immensely it was the …

Riding with AC/DC ringing in my ears

Thu Feb 25, 2010 4:31 pm by Desmo

Tuesdays don’t you love them? The day after Monday with the sun out, everyone still has four full days of work to go and all the Colonel and I can think of is how we were going to burn off two and a half tanks of ozone depleting fluid sitting on the wall of the Mobil servo at the big junction drinking an iced coffee, reminiscing over Neka’s runny nose ride waiting to see if anyone else was …

Yellow Peril on a Spring Playground

Wed Oct 21, 2009 3:45 pm by Desmo


With floors cold from a 4 degree night it was a lazy start. The aroma of those finely ground beans; the essential warming Colombian arabica coffee brewed by a departing Mrs. D an hour previously as she readied for work provided the impetus for Desmo to peel back the eye lids and allow the muted morning tones to …

MV in the Southland

Sun Oct 11, 2009 8:21 am by Desmo

Contrary to rumours Desmo does ride his other bikes and the Monday after the Geelong Cats had beat the St Kilda Saints after 25 hard fought rounds late in September was one of those days.

It was a glorious day with 23 degrees proffered by BOM. The day was begun early with MrsD translating the finer details of German Ebay for me. With that out of the way Desmo took to the fitment of his latest …

A Day With Supertramp on Kimmy

Thu Sep 03, 2009 9:51 pm by Desmo

“Monday has come around again” the seventies super group Supertramp had many great songs and this one started to play its way into my Monday some thirty odd years on.
“I’m in the same old place….think I’ll rob a store escape the law and live in Italy”
Why is it we remember certain things? Like bits of songs, I don’t know any more of the words than I did then but there you have …

Pointies Head South Run

Wed Aug 26, 2009 8:44 am by Desmo

It was one of those days when the weather had taken a turn for the better inducing conditions favorable to support a winters outing in the southern environs. We have become use to the dry drought stricken winters where the cold dry air provides us two wheeled enthusiasts with the means for days of endless enjoyment on our twisted playground. With BOM proffering a dry cool day with light northerly …

3SV'S@3Hrs+Twisties=Fun!

Sat Aug 15, 2009 12:07 am by Desmo

With winter in its final throws of miserable weather, today was a nice taste of what is to come with the spring flowers already in bloom.
The sun rose with a colourful crescendo of red and ochre hues to usher in a chilly but fine winter’s day. The beat of V-twins were drumming in my mind as the girls were heading to a short day at Uni and both were keen to squeeze in a ride between other …

The Ride!!!

Fri Jun 05, 2009 4:29 am by Desmo





The thought of riding is never too far from the fore of an enthusiasts mind.
Those of you addicted to the thrill of two wheels know what I mean.
The thought of the decreasing radius apexes that have the rider feathering a back brake to wash off the extra …
