Yum Peking Chicken Drummets $2.00EA

Took her out for her first really big run last weekend, The Canberra run was more of a day trip. Sydney to Echuca, return. Made it as far as Jerilderie on Friday night, first bit of country night riding. You know, the high beam gamble, where everything turns a bit video game like and you start imagining the different sorts of kangaroo-stepping-onto-the-road scenarios... At 110kms an hour. Stayed at the pub Ned Kelly held hostage, complete with open fire and steak and beer. So good. Onto Echuca from J on Saturday morning, where I had the chance to wind open that throttle as far as it could go. It worked. Home again on Sunday morning. 788kms in 12 hours, including pie and coffee stops. Not bad. Easy, compared to Jewelz, who completely put me to shame by doing the whole damn thing on a Kawazaki ZZR 250. Good fun though. Brought the Ghostesse home with 2,800 kms on the clock, well overdue for her 1,000km service. She goes in on Wednesday.
