Well hope you've all had a great Easter weekend, not that I believe in these religious festivals, the days are all the same to me, I either work on bikes, or I don't.
I didn't get the opportunity to pay my respects to the people who laid down their lives so that we could enjoy the lives of relatively calm and freedom this morning, but there has been enough about our ANZAC boys in the press for the past few days, and it has made me sit back and reflect on what those brave young boys ( for that is all that they were) actually did. These days, it's gone so PC, that I think people who complain these days about anything, and everything forget what life was like back then and the sacrifices that were made so that today they do have the freedom to complain. Our modern day society is based on their struggles and their sacrifices and we forget that. There seems to be some sort of self righteous thinking going on today that enables these people to have their say, and what they say is supposedly right, based on today's politically correct thinking with no thought for how this society that we have is today was formed. . Bullshit really.
Enough of this bollocks, had some great conversations this week about how we as a group of riders and motorcyclists are very fortunate in that we have this common bond, this tangible thing based on our lifestyle choices and all centered around motorcycling. That wave to an unknown rider heading the other way, that pulling in for a warming coffee on a cold night with a few hundred K's to go and the conversations struck up with someone on a bike heading the other way, the knowing nod of acknowledgement to another rider at the petrol forecourt, walking into a bar and spying a couple of helmets in the corner and a couple of people sitting enjoying a quiet beer. All around us we see this and we acknowledge this, sometimes without saying a word, but it is there, that kindred feeling of 'they are like me'. Pity that the rest of the world didn't ride motorcycles. I think it would be a more peaceful place. And speaking of which you have arrived at my quiet space so that you can enjoy this weeks images in your quiet space.
One of the nicest Moto Guzzis I've had the pleasure to put up on the page, this thing has it all. Italian, style, looks, stance, lashings of period go fast bits, this is IT.
And that's all from me this week, it's out a little early, that's because i am waitng for parts etc etc to turn up, so think of you all, cheers
