In times like these....well any time really, i like to look towards one of the most knowledgable role models in todays society....Homer Simpson. HAHA. Crack the fridge door open and pitch a tent around the outside LOL... It's coooool, in here boy
Note: dont try that at home kiddies LOL. fridge motors arn't cheap :p

Well for me the heat has now gone, but my arch nemesis has reared his ugly head yet again and is costing me more time off the bike and jumps... I call him "Storm-blor"
Yeah early in the morning or later in the arvie are the best times for a session. Make sure you all Slip Slop and Slap when you're out in the sun :p

Yes yes, i will also confirm the nice early morning ride time scenario here. I've been gettin up at 4:30am to work and it's the nicest time to ride I've ever witnessed, well maybe not that early, probably closer to 5 when it gets a lil lighter, sadly i must not give in to the temptaion to ride lol. Damn Storm-blor, he came stormin through here several times also before he got to your joint...he thinks he's so big :p
13th January 2004, 08:52 PM
Yes exactly like Mungo said, best time to witness it, the only decent pics i have with nice colour come from early morning pictures... The hard part is just getting my sister awake to come out and take pictures hahaha. Mungo wat was your strategy for defeating Storm-blor, i can't seem to shake him, been raining here heaps over last few days, and well i'm growing tired of it, just have to find his weakness... :D

now now boys all this talk of superheros has me thinking of 2 more so-called superheros, altho i don't think its appropriate to name them on here, lets just say those 2 are the next "dynamic duo" ;)
14th January 2004, 01:36 AM
