  • ONE CRAPPY MORNING

    The more sentient readers will understand that I am a nostalgic kinda bloke. To indulge myself, I perform a pilgrimage each year to the sacred mountain overlooking Bathurst. Some of you will know this non-mountainous mountain as Mt Panorama....
  • OXFORD REVOLVER REVIEW – PEACE OF MIND & A NECKLACE FOR A BIG NIGHT OUT

    I love this thing. This sweet, hefty, sex-python of stainless steel violence speaks to me. I’m weird like that. I weaponise everything. I’m like the Pentagon in that regard. Where you see a security device, I see an anti-home-invasion...

  • 3, 7, 11…25

    Blokes who have done multi-day trips may be able to relate to The Transformation. If you have not spent many days on a bike, then don’t say I haven’t warned you… After three days on a bike, you change....
  • HELD SOFTSHELL VEST REVIEW – My Soft Little Secret
