Coffs Harbour - Woolgoolga Ride

My day started typically with another broken computer.
The client couldn't understand why it would cost $200 to fix a $700 computer.
Simple. The new hard drive is $120 delivered. That's cost to me.
I had to run diagnostics on memory and hard drive to ascertain the issue.
The client requested I recover data from the failed drive.
I have to fit the drive and reinstall windows and all applications, then copy the data back.
So it would appear Im working for a little over $10 an hour.
The client think's he's getting a raw deal. Somehow I think I am.
Bugger it, I think I'll go for a ride on my motorcycle.

Kingy and I stopped at CoffsMotorsports and Ag.
We had a good yak with Derek and ordered some parts.
Derek wants to sell his business, so if you have a knack for bikes and 350k contact me.

Then we went to visit my Nanna at Woolgoolga. 
She's just turned 96 but is as sharp as a tack.
I dropped off a few bits and pieces and we had a good talk.
The work on the highway north of Coffs Harbour is massive.
Good to see our tax dollar being utilised for good purpose.

Next stop was Coffs Motorcycles & Lawn Care for some more parts.
 I had a look at some of the newer (and older) bikes on the floor.

On the way home I noticed a cop car pulled in at a sawmill.
There was a huge plume of funny smelling smoke coming from a fire out the back.
I don't know why but I felt a bit giggly and light headed for a while.

I'm pretty sure I smelt the same smoky smell coming out of this van near the roadworks.

The Kempsey Bypass seems to be cracking along nicely too.
We will all be pleased to see this one open.

I did a bit of lane filtering but stopped when I saw this vehicle up front.
Some of them don't have a sense of humor when overtaken.
Even at a standstill.
