Jonathan, that is brilliant! I'd love to get that made into a sticker for the bike! Would you mind if I did that?

No....not at all. In fact, if you PM me an email contact, I'll send you the file. It was just a doodle on the drawing software I have  :028:

Hit a rather large kangaroo on my way to work. Luckily it was more of a glancing blow and my kneepad took the brunt. I managed to stay on and the roo hopped off dazed and confused. regarding the riding having lived in Northern England for 45 years before moving to Oz, my hat goes off to the high mileage commuters over there and other cold wet places around the world. I have ridden over there and know how bad it gets. Its a breeze over here in comparison. You guys must have some good riding gear to keep from freezing.
  There are some fantastic rides around here [south east Queensland and northern New South Wales. The only weather problem is the occasional torrential rain or the extreme heat. I don't miss riding around the North West of England in the cold wet and terrible traffic. I just arrived home today after a 3440km road trip from Darwin NT.[in a car] The first 3000km there was barely any traffic and no hold ups.
   All the best

That's piling on the miles! I've recently got to 40k, mostly year-round commuting, in just over 4 years, having bought it at 4k.

Nice  :821: I ride 365 days here, but my commute to work is less than 5 miles round trip. I need to get out more on the weekends!

My bike is 2 years old now and has 13,800 miles on it.  Last winter there was no more than a 3 day stretch that I couldnt commute on the bike.  I will not ride if below 15F or heavy rain or snow/ice on the road.

This winter is altogether different.  If its warm enough to ride it is raining.  If not raining the temperature is too low and/or there is snow/ice on the roads.  The bike has been unridden for almost 3 weeks now and the coming week doesnt look good.  It is currently raining and 55F with the rain to continue through Friday when the temperature is to drop into the low to mid 20s with the rain briefly changing to snow.  Any water on the roads will freeze as black ice. 

A friend couldnt take it anymore and rode to work in conditions like that and went down on a bridge covered with black ice.  Busted up his bike a bit but he is fine.

After the cold snap this weekend it will warm up and the rains return Sunday afternoon through Tuesday where the forecast ends.

Im dying a little inside to get back out on the bike, but not willing to die to do it.  This is really putting a dent in my bike mileage and in my cost of fuel to commute to work!

Just had 144000km service done. valves checked and all still within tolerances. Fuel pressure good. May need a new battery after 5 years service. Can't fault anything else. Here's to the next 50000kms
