Happy Days


Yesterday was a happy day – one of the first beautiful days of Spring and hopefully the end of the wind and rain; the first weekend country ride for me after 11 months of  not being able to ride; a new bike to ride (Gabriella), a Ducati 999s;


 the first ride for Andre on his modified Ducati Monster;


time spent at Tailpipes HQ with Justin and Jono and Maddy;

    Ditto Max, but in keeping with the Happy Days theme, I look more like Fonzie (hehe)

    Hi Max.
    I was sorry to learn of your spill, but thrilled to see you get back on the horse. And a nice thoroughbred at that….
    Every man should have something red and italian in his life at some point .
    Awesome effort. Cheers Neil

      Hi Neil
      Good to hear from you. I’m happy to be riding again although still waiting for a full recovery (hopefully).

  6. Hi Max,
    Great to see you back in the saddle. It’s been a while since I visited the site and missed that you had the off. Hopefully by now you have made a full recovery and having no after affects.

    There is still a room available and space for Gabriella to get out of the cold should you ever venture down this way to Welly.

      Thank you Kenny. Nice to hear from you again. As you can imagine, the last 16 months has been a real challenge as I have steadily worked my way towards recovery. The last remaining issue is my left hand which is still quite numb but I have enough to work the clutch, and every day it gets better. Thanks for your offer to stay. I will take you up in that. Of course the same applies here. All the best. Max
