Roaming to Aussie Boxerworks weekend......

“First weekend n March. Charlie has a fine campsite in mind near Tumbarumba NSW........ “ is what Mal posted up on the Boxerworks forum. A call for us Aussie Boxerworks guys to gather. It would be a round trip of close to 1100 kms for me. Leave in the wee hours of Saturday morning. Arrive Saturday arvo. Then head home Sunday morning. One problem. One I was dreading. Riding the boring Hume Highway. Or as I like to call it the “Ho Hum Highway” Charlie and Geoff will be there. I have not seen them since my trip to Mitta Mitta this time last year. Ok I will bear the ever so boring road called the Hume.

Friday arvo I am packed. Billy is in the traditional travelling spot hanging off the back of the bike.

Forecast is for rain over the weekend. They got that right. I woke up at 3am. Was supposed to be 4am. What the heck it will give me an extra hour on the road. Water and feed myself. Kiss Jan good bye. Walk bike out onto the wet road and ride off. Rain and fog in the dark. Road works near Cam…

Time for some TLC...... too much love? No!

The TLC keeps going on.

New seat. The old one is so worn out. Torn that the rain leaks into it. When you sit on it after the rain water oozes out when you sit on it. I am so sick of the wet pants. The padding in the seat has compressed so much. So new seat from Motobins. Wow the difference. Is this really now a comfort seat? I thought the old one was comfy. I will find out this comming weekend. I am off to the Boxerworks Aussie meeting down past the Snowies. I hope this new seat pampers my rear end like a nice comfy bed.

Poor old seat.

Lovely new seat.

Some indulgence now. I hate the later style rockers covers. So I bought some new pattern old style peanut shaped ones again from Motobins. I love the look of these old style ones.

Off with the old.

On with the new.
