Unwinding....

Postby Matt » Thu Oct 19, 2006 8:00 am

Well, I guess everybody has there method of unwinding...

I must admit I find it hard to relax alot of the time... for me its putting on my leathers and head out on my bike... I love the fresh air.. I'll do it at all sort of times.. although.. since im in the country dodge roo isnt as fun ...

Recent photo from the Grampians last week.. with my bike.

Hi matt

the link didnt work for me??? you would love being up here on the coast near the wattagan (sp?) mountains with your bike. its about 40 minutes from where i live. where i live we are surrounded by nation park and we have to drive through it tog et out of town too. its nice that you are able to unwind. i like to have bubble baths -its the only time i get to myself and i cherish it! lol.

OH yeah! Totally understand Matt.

I ride a virago 250cc, riding for about 3 years so far. I live up Whittlesea way so we have some nice windy roads up there. Only thing is I ride every day and find I don't get out as much on the weekend, kind of get my fill during the week but traffic is never as much fun as the open road.

Safe riding. :D

Hi Matt. Thanks for the pic :D

I also find it hard to relax. I went on a holiday at the start of this year, with the idea being that I would do nothing and relax. But I just couldn't sit still for five minutes... finally relaxed on the last day :roll:

I don't have that much experience with motor bikes, but when I lived out in the country (Jervis Bay, NSW, for about 9 months), I found getting out in my car and hitting the open road to be very relaxing. Flooring the accelerator pedal is a great way to relieve stress! But talk about kangaroos - I only hit one, once :lol: Certainly adds to the stress of the drive if you don't know what is about to jump out in front of you :wink:

Hey, that's awesome!

The bike looks great and I bet you have heaps of fun!

I'm more like Kate - a really good bubble bath helps me unwind.. but there's something about hitting the open road and just driving that is so much fun.. (well, I have a car)

My bloke seems to love playing with the Starion (his beloved race car) to wind down!
Me I like the ride home after a stressful day at work and I have to find at least some time in the week to read a book otherwise I go nuts!
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!
