I have finally filled in my application for teh Australian WIMA Rally, which has been on my mind for years. Further more, I have booked my flight and my bike. The 20% WIMA discount gave me a very reasonalbe offer for the bike. My application for volunteering at the Moto GP is being filled in. This is the plan: I’ll arrive in Melbourne on the Tuesday before the Moto GP to recover a bit from the jet lag. From Thursday to Sunday I’ll be at the Moto GP. From Monday I have booked a bike, BMW GS 650, and I’ll have it for 10 days, so after the WIMA Rally I’ll ride the Great Ocean Road, slow and easy to take in the view, I’ve been wanting to do that for 10 years. Last time I could not go there because of strong wind, so I hope it will be possible this time. After I return the bike I will still have 4 days to enjoy Melbourne and whatever comes up.
What a treat! I took a break from essay writing and ventured over to the Tobacco Dock to rest my sore eyes on these beauties. The theme for the exhibition was Scrambler and all bikes were heavily customised. It was a great pleasure to spend the day musing over curious solutions and intricate designs.
Woohoo! Exciting times ahead!
After a long winter without riding, summer can’t come soon enough, and yet somehow summer is coming too quickly. I can’t keep up, essays to write, exams to pass, routes to plot and a bike to prepare.
For this season my blog is going to get a major upgrade, new design by Hexaten is being crafted at this very moment. The new blog will go live this upcoming weekend and to celebrate the launch I will run the Hackney half on Sunday, wearing the new logo!
