Motorbikes are all about the feels

G'day, what's new you ask? In my never ending quest for awesome moto-gear, quite a bit; I got a new lid, new boots, new MX Goggles and I've been looking at (even riding) all sorts of new bikes. I'm doing a few new drawings and of course, postieing my way around Melbourne. Life is good.
