    Possibly, Cyrille. But the camo must be good 'cus I can't make him out myself.

    However, for security reasons I have replanted my rhododendron bushes further away to keep them out of sniper range and out of view of the CCTV cameras that send their signals to the Intelligence unit of the Wilts-Lancs Mitty Regiment, Merlot Division.

    I went to pick up this funky blue beach cruiser that I bought on eBay and the fella sold me 2 more bikes while I was there...

    I should not have taken the bike carrier as I left myself open to unexpected temptation when it was laid in my path...

    Could not see what I was buying in the dark and rain but here they are

    On Yer Bike-20231129_200509-jpg

    Beach Cruiser in metallic blue with brand new beach cruiser tyres - $37

    Weird and frumpy looking Nev-style Giant Suede-Metro cruiser-commuter that does not look very cool but is insanely comfortable and has got a bonkers low 18 inch climbing gear which you would normally only find on a pro-touring bike. The padded springy seat is worth the ticket price alone at a grand total of - $50

    Last but certainly not least a feather-light Kona Lana'i mountain bike - $50

    ^ Before you bought them, did you check the police database for recently stolen bicycles in your area, Looper?

    ^They are indeed suspiciously cheap Nev...

    I might spend the weekend filing the serial numbers off the bottom brackets!

    There's a glut of second hand bikes out there going cheap.

    Just make sure you ride them far from where you bought them

    Another day another bike...

    On Yer Bike-20231201_184251-jpg

    I actually bought this Surly Disk Trucker touring bike 2 weeks ago on eBay for a princely purse of $610 and Amazonian Swiss Maori woman kindly picked it up for me from the Brisbane seller and stuck it under her tree.

    On Yer Bike-img_20231122_214157-jpg

    It was then under Santa rules so I had to be a good boy to avoid the lump of coal bait and switch.

    But ASM ventured down the freeway in her sleigh to deliver the goods today ...and switched up her fruit platter with nectarines.

    We watched a lightning storm roll across the valley (the rain forcing a strategic mattress retreat) with some Christmas carols piping out of the lounge and an avocado honey soy dip

    On Yer Bike-20231201_205955-jpg

    And as the storm settled the waxing moon did grace the sky once more upon the occasion of our 1 month anniversary...

    Out for a beach bash when what should I come across but a Nev-Special - Giant Suede Metro just like the one I picked up for $50.

    This one really does have suede patches on it.

    On Yer Bike-20231203_190224-jpg

    A little bit further on I came across a bike bearing an uncanny resemblance to my blue beach cruiser.

    On Yer Bike-20231203_190801-jpg

    This was fortuitous as the previous custodian of my cruiser had taken the unusual precaution of removing all identifying marks from the frame so I could not tell what it was. This pink one is not as curvaceous and pretty as mine but the DNA is unmistakable. It is an Electra Beach Cruiser. I thought mine had no brakes but this fortuitous identification has explained that I actually have coaster brakes where you pedal backwards. That was a handy revelation as I was about to fit it with rim brakes.

    When the mercury topped out at 33c it was time for a swim.

    On Yer Bike-20231203_191427-jpg

    I realised too late that I had not packed my bottle opener in my bike bag...

    But this is no obstacle for a cunning bike bloke and his bicycle multitool

    How old are those Asics running shoes, Looper? They look very similar to a pair I had 10 or more years ago, although mine would have been the 12 series and not the 11 series.

    Nice basket, Nev!

    I think these are the same turbines from the other side of Lamtakong, from the train. The new elevated motorway section is clearly visible.

    I got them last year I think.

    Maybe the ocker outback is off the pace on up to date shoes.

    They were quite cheap so maybe old stock with dried out glue about to fall apart!

    Very festive Loops!

    That's the first bike I've ever seen adorned with tinsel.

    Although it's probably best not to ask what happened to the mid section frame piece.
