Even though it's only 8:00 here in the UK the sun will be setting on the other side of the world. As such guess I'd best get the aftermath thread up ready for the first night riders.

Looking forward to seeing the first pics before I finish my breakfast 8)

Nice to see a couple of snaps already. Let's keep this for ride pics and banter only. The time for chat and jibber jabber has passed :lol:

at 8pm AEST time, I was fettling my current build Proflex. The downside to buying most of your stuff on eBay is the waiting game, never mind, nearly there..

Well I trapsed off down to the garage, when I realised that my ye oldie DB apex needs a seat.. that and I really wouldn't ride it at the moment (needs some tlc) and my other DB had some bits missing off it as I had been fiddling with it... woops... So if you don't mind I took the zaskar re-issue, which tbh is actually "retro" kinda type thing...

anyway as i'm an unfit lardo and had already been for a ride today, only went on a small ride (*cough*, small, *cough*...)...


but the bike is awesome, love it and had some fun...

I managed to get out on 5 bikes this evening. Ok it wasn't at 20:00 but I started then and rode through to 21:30ish.

I threw all the photos on friendface because it was simple...

Unlike the chaps on the southern hemisphere we should still have some daylight! Just wish this drizzle would stop.

:D
