I bought a shirt today too, well actually two,
both quilted flanellette winter shirts to replace my ragged 20 yrs old original.
Red one cost me $30 and a blue one similar from another shop $25.
Wore it over a thermal undershirt and a Motorhead t shirt with my leather vest over that and my leather jacket over that.
Leather jeans, Rossi boots and leather gloves so had no need for any further armor.
Its turning quite cool DownUnder but never too cool to fire up the Cross Country and go for a carve through the hills, finished off with a run down the inland road to Byron Bay running under the rising full moon, and returning via the freeway.

Spent more time adjusting the backrest post this weekend, then out of the blue, the wife says "Did you want to go to Royal, I can get a proper helmet (the one she was given was too big)." I squealed, and off we went. Then on Sunday with nicer weather, I took her out on her first actual ride. Also ended up discovering that I live around the corner from Mike Holmes. It was a good day.

As for the backrest, I am going to cut about an inch off the bottom, and add in some spacers on the lower screws on the pad to angle it more.

It was a nice night for a ride last night! I was coming home from work about 6:30 and just made it down the mountain and onto the straight along the Obi Obi creek flats when there was a bright flare of light in the mirrors, as the full moon rose over the ridge behind me and lit up the road ahead.
It was a bit cool though, light frost on the ground this morning. Ride to work gear today was the usual pair of black Levis, wool tee shirt, cotton business shirt, wool jumper, Pendleton wool shirt over that, then an old army thermal vest, topped by my leather jacket. I was too hot when I got to work on the coast side of the range.
Winter is coming! Hang on, it's midwinter day on Saturday. Still got a couple of months of frosts to look forward to, with a few weeks of -5 C mornings in there.

Got in some quality time with the garage and the XR yesterday thanks to an early dentist appointment. Got a cheap little helmet lock for the wife's helmet that I ended up mounting it to the luggage rack on the sissy bar. Also shave an inch off the bottom of the backrest post, and bent it back in the bench vise about 5 degrees to angle back to my... well, back

Hoping to hit the local bike night tonight for the first time this year (it's been raining for all but 1, and my I ride with murdered his clutch arm doing lawn work last week)

I finally got to ride it to work. Second beautiful day in a row with no rain. Could have rode it yesterday as well but I needed my damn truck to haul tools, etc. at least I got today though, hopefully the riding to work trend will continue.
