Marco Simoncelli

It was with much sadness that I watched the last lap of Marco Simoncelli life on Sunday afternoon. I will confess that I am only a bit of fair weather fan of MotoGP these days, unlike when I watched everything all night every second Sunday and got to see the likes of Rossi come up through the ranks.

When I first saw the crash I thought that is not good and was quite sickened. When they finally annouced that he had died it came without surprise only sadness. Is easy to say that he died doing what he loved and whilst very true his death has undoubtable left a gaping hole in hearts of those he was close to.

Easter 2011

For Easter 2010 - it was time to take Smooch on a serious off road ride.  This was to her used to camping of the bike and to see how we would go on dirt roads two-up.

The trip was to be up to Kroombit Tops to Beautiful Betsy a wrecked WWII Liberator Bomber that had crashed on a passenger to run to Brisbane.

After visiting my mate Tim we headed out to Esk and rode around Wivenhoe and Somerset Dams and on to Kilcoy.

From Kilcoy we headed up the Range to Jimma and some easy dirt to Goomeri via the Kilcoy-Murgon road.  Not wanting to overdo it for Sharon on the first day, we pulled into Goomeri for the night and setup an early camp.
