New stuff for the Bike

On the weekend I purchased a 45 L topbox for my bike.

A SHAD SH-45 for $290. The 50 L version costs $500, too expensive for my taste.

I was looking at a Givi 52L box, but they are USD $300, plus  USD $180 postage. On top of that you needing the mountplate for USD $90

Now all I need are:

– Centrestand
– panniers for the side
– Protector for the bottom of the bike.

Blake’s 7 [TV]

When I was growing up in Country Victoria there were only two TV channels, no McDonalds and KFC was an hour drive away.
Did I mentioned the shops closed at 1pm on Saturday? … a very fast paced life

The point of this? …. a few shows on TV captured my imagination and allowed me to escape the fast life in country Victoria.

– Doctor Who
– Star Trek
– Black Adder

And last but not least, Blake’s 7. The special effects made Doctor Who look good. The fight scenes were terrible, but the story and the characters were wonderful. My favourite? Avon, who would sell out his own mother if there was no other choice.

Anyway I have just finished watching them all again, all four seasons.

Technology is pretty amazing now. I can stream the Blake’s 7 DVD rips from my computer to my iPad.
