Charlies Angels again

Posted by simon

From Sun-Sentinel: Movies
Well, i was starting to think that Charlies Angels: Full Throttle might not be worth a cinema trip. Lots of reviews around the 'net basically canned it as having no plot, too much action, too many babes (yeah, right).

But this one has turned it around for me.

"Not long after, Full Throttle becomes the best motorcycle motocross epic since Bruce Brown's 1971 On Any Sunday.
Barrymore and co-stars Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu hop aboard open-class
dirt bikes to cavort in flying formation while trying to bring down a
knobby-tired assassin. Later, the trio goes up against Demi Moore as a
seemingly indestructible ex-Angel gone bad."

Amtra SA Dergholm Ride

Posted by simon

For the days leading up to the June long weekend, it poured with rain. Not a little, a lot. Three and a half inches at Dergholm!

I was ride coordinator for this trip, and had a couple of phone calls checking if it was still on, you'd almost think that we were Australian Summer Motorcycle Trail Riders Association!

Friday morning I loaded up the bike in the rain, all the while thinking that maybe it was just a little bit crazy to be going in this weather, which was forcast to get only slightly better for the weekend.
