Its Friday the 12th August and I’m off from Gladstone to Sydney, Train to Gosford and picked up by Johann from OZ trikes to Somersby.
Don’t quote me exactly but the train fares were like 25$ from the airport to Sydney and 8$ from central to Gosford??? go figure.
This is the what I am excited about, picking up a BOOM Trike Mustang ST1, black and all mine.
Its about 2ish in the arvo and after a short round the block Competency to Operate ride and then finalise the paperwork, Johann gives me another what all the switches and dials do and a friendly warning about ensuring I drive in the middle of the road and be aware of the location of my back wheels, I am on my way. Yeehaa!
I find my way to the freeway and freaking out, I’m wandering a bit and back wheels are going over the lines. I am getting the boomp boomp from the cats eyes and cars are giving me a wide berth 🙁
But I mange to settle down after a while and start to enjoy (maybe a little over confident …)
Its starting to get cold, need fuel for me and the Trike and a place to sleep. Here we go, Scone Motor Inn, restaurant on the side..bewdy!
Just in time too as it’s 5C and I have jeans and a jacket and really starting too cool down.
