Not a bike, but I did take the picture. Local concrete company dresses up two mixers with over
twenty-five thousand lights and drives them to town events.

Re: Random Pic of the Day (2)

So, on New Year's day, and just when you think you've seen everything, I was riding my bike around the block after doing a bit of service (coolant, brake flush, air filter, oil change....) I came across this mashup, a '59 Chevy rear end, a Camaro roof line (maybe) and a '57 Chevy hood, and if the badge is accurate, "789 Cruiser", a 789 CI motor, there ain't no substitute for cubic inches!!! Odd, but cool, anyway, happy New Year,

Re: Random Pic of the Day (2)

Two photos of a trip up - and back of a ride up iconic Mt Glorious in Brisbane. A couple of enthusiastic photographers sit up there and take photos and then post them on the net. The HP2 is an amazing bike - about as fast as a Jap 600. Not as much torque -115nm - or hp -133 - as my k1200r nor as comfortable (plush) but it's light weight 177 kg (389ibs dry) quirkiness and quality make it a beautiful bike to ride. It outhandles and outbrakes the k1200r by a big margin. One magazine tester said he got to corners faster on other bikes but never through them faster. The potential for those carbonfibre rocker covers grinding through corners still concern me.

Re: Random Pic of the Day (2)

There you have it, Martin. You look just like Paul McCartney!

On the bad side, you don't have all his multi-millions. But on the good side, you also don't have his one-legged ex-wife!

Yes , that's our brother Benoît who died August 2015 ...

He's been with me on my Australia tour , well most of it , as I drop some of his ashes on top of Mt Hotham , and in Cape Leeuwin .





I think this year he'll be visiting Uluru , or Ayer's Rock as the ancient calls it ...

There I was, the proud owner of a slightly used Gold Wing. This was around 1978. I didn't know any better back then.

Re: Random Pic of the Day (2)

Some boat construction photos or links to them for Mogs or anyone else who's interested. For some reason I've lost the ability to post photos. Not sure what's up with that but it's been like that for a while now.

Hole where the drive unit goes in. It's a Voith R21. If you don't know about Voith units go here: http://voith.com/corp-en/drives-tran...eller-vsp.html. At the bottom of the page you'll see ivsp or something like that. It's a little video game that shows you how it works. Has two of these.

Lining up the shaft bearings using stretched piano wire


http://www.i-bmw.com/gallery/showphoto.php/photo/45301

Overall boat picture


http://www.i-bmw.com/gallery/showphoto.php/photo/45300


Boat is 270' by 65' or 82.3 metres x 19.8 metres. Not quite 3000 HP

Nothing I've posted comprises a security issue so I won't have to kill you if you look at it.

It does. Can go sideways, spin on its own axis and stop in its own length from full speed. Not bad for a 1200+ ton vessel.
