I had 3 plans for 2006
1) to get an 89/90 Explosif which I did.
2) build up my first bike from Scratch which I also did (with a little help.)
3) Re-spray and trick out the 89 Rockhopper, this is not yet done.

I had 2 goals in mind for 2007, a Raleigh technium Chill and a Yo Eddy.. The Raleigh is on it's way over the Atlantic at the moment so that plan is already coming to fruition a little earlier than expected,though it will need a re-spray and some new kit. The Yo is probably going to have to wait until bonus time as they seem to be very expensive...

Other goals are to complete the monsterman duathlon series without embarrassing myself too much, take part in a couple of enduro races and most importantly get my other half out on her bike so I don't feel so guilty about p*ssing off at weekends ...

2007 is gunna be Big for me, moving back to the UK.. Started my MCP yesterday [Microsoft Certified Professional qualification] so hope to finish that by March/April.. Hitting the road in September and driving AntiClockwise with my girlie Rosie in a Winnebago for a coupla months, surf every break we come across [dodging the sharks near Esperance].. Cannot wait :D

Bike wise I have to slow down a bit.. The GT is as good as complete [in parts, but still in pieces] and the Bont never fails to make me smile.. Big savings push to make an Aussie Dollar balance not look so paltry in Sterling when I land in London Town..

Looking forward to my First RB Meet in March :D
