Another day playing around in Marramarra National Park, having fun doing some small jumps, getting better at sliding, riding down/off small drops, etc.
And I used the muffler propperly as a bashplate for the first time. I missjudged a drop and landed square on the square corner of a rock haha.
The front wheel was held up, but luckily I had enough momentum to slide along the bashplate (er, I mean muffler) and ride over the rock.
I now accept that my shiney new bike wont stay shiney and new forever. Solution: make it louder! So I order a Special O.P.S. pipe from Odie in the states. My first experience with the true Buell community, really cool people, making all sorts of cool things themselves. None of this mass-produced computerised Japanese rubbish. I like it :-)
