2006 Thousand Miler - DONE!!

Back from the 1000 miler. My arse won't mind if it's another year until the next one. It was toughter than last year, more slow twisty back roads. Made it hard to cover ground quickly. It seemed to take a long time to get to the halfway point. The second half was more open and it felt like we were getting somewhere. Finally finished just after 12:00pm. Only 21 hours after starting. 1638km's completed.

Last night after we finished I wasn't too fussed if I never rode again, but after a rest most of my enthusiasm has returned!

Got to ride through pretty much every type of weather, hot sun, rain, fog etc.

Bike went well, definately more comfortable than the 750 from last year.

Bike is in getting serviced at the moment, off on the Manawatu Ulysees 4 Points Compass Rally tomorrow.

Got a week off work, YEAH BABY.
