Sun glare – tinted visor acquired

I was coming up over a crest on the Monash freeway late in the afternoon and was blinded by sunlight.

As a rider still gaining experience, it was just a little unnerving having reduced visibility.

A visit to Peter Stevens was a must. One of the guys checked the part number for my RJay helmet and quoted $30 for a tinted visor. Do it.

It was a bit fiddly to install, great helmet but I’m sure it’s not as functional as a more expensive Shoei.




New boots and motorbike jacket acquired!

It’s been a long time coming.

I’ve been getting sick of my current boots, the zip catches when trying to zip it up. My current jacket swims on me after some weight loss, which has to be a safety issue if I’m unlucky enough to ever come off.

My credit card is quietly sobbing with the new purchases.



Great day to ride to work

With Metro Trains striking today and the sun shining, it was a great day to ride to work from St Kilda to Melbourne CBD.

Melbourne Central train station is dead quiet though, feel sorry for the businesses.


I couldn’t help myself. I popped into Peter Stevens during my lunch break to take a look at their bike range and perv on the Vulcan S.

They also had the 2016 GSX-S 1000F on display.


How NOT to ride in traffic

First ride: Kawasaki Vulcan S

I visited Peter Stevens the other day for a browse and noticed this purple bike sitting next to other Kawasaki sports. It was love at first sight.

I’m now trying to talk myself out of buying one….and I’m not sure if I’ll suit the cruiser style ride. Test ride a must.

Amazing riding advice here, I recommend the read for inexperienced riders

Service time before warmer weather hits

Dropped my bike off this morning for a minor service. Just in time for spring!

Shameful to admit, I’ve had the bike about three years and had not serviced it. It was sitting for an extensive period of time as well.

The poor thing will feel like new tomorrow.

Women riders are not novelties – Road Rider Magazine

Women are empowering themselves in the male-dominated world of motorcycling. Again. Still. Or maybe it’s just another slow news day.
