Here on Earth

Reactions: 
Missing you...



Tiësto feat. Cary Brothers - Here On Earth
And the sun has fallen, and the backbeat's telling truths
That you want to hear, and you want to hear again
And the closer that you get, with the force of all the weight
And it's also clear, do you want to feel her

Want to feel her, want to feel her

For as long as you are, here on this earth
I feel alive
For as long as you are, here on this earth
I feel alive

And you take your time, because we've got all night
Saturday or nothing, we can do what we want
I'm a sucker for your game, it's the way you tease
And it's so unreal, when we touch the ceiling

For as long as you are, here on this earth
I feel alive
For as long as you are, here on this earth
I feel alive

Make it so, it shakes your heart
Nice and slow, but can you let it go
And you feel life fall away, and you have no fear
And you let it go, just let it go
And you feel life fall away, and you have no fear
Can you let it go, let it go

For as long as you are, here on this earth
I feel alive
Feel alive, feel alive, feel alive, feel alive
Feel alive, feel alive, feel alive, feel alive

DJ Tiësto has always been a favorite of mine but I think he has outdone himself with Kaleidoscope, must try and get hold of it. It has some very laid back tracks for Trance... the Nelly Furtado track is brilliant!
So while MD is up in Ganstaparadise I will do some music catching up to share with her when she gets back.

FAQ for Bloggers

Reactions: 
I started a blog on "how to" way back in 2007 but as I only had 2 posts I am now taking down that blog... here was/is the contents;
Post 1
I frequently get asked "How do you do that on your blog?" so I thought it was about time to put my Blog Bashing Guide together.
Feel free to ask a question, I will get to it sometime and try and point you to the right place or put a Bash Guide together to explain the steps to take.
I will use this and my next postings to explain how to add elements etc.

This is assuming that you are using the new version of blogger with Customise option. You may want to click on each image to make it clear/larger as to see what I am talking about.
Step 1 - After logging in to your blog you will see a link named Customise, this will open the Template Editor when you click on it, shown by my crude yellow arrow on the top right.
Step 2 - Once you click on Customise the Template Editor will open, you will notice that there may be several places where it says Add a Page Element, as you want to add a blogroll to the side of your layout chose that part by clicking on that particular Add a Page Element link.
Step 3 - A new window will open with a whole lot of things to select, as we want a Link List click on that elements Add To Blog link.
Step 4 - Now we have to add a header for your list and put some links in it, the header can be added in the Title input field. The link name is added in the New Site Name input field. The URL is added in New Site URL input field. All indicated by the yellow arrows. Once this is done you click on Add Link. The link will be set up and you may then add the next or click on Save Changes. Then click on View Blog to see how it looks in real life...
You will now see your Blogroll with the title you gave it and the links you added, you can edit any element on your blog by using the Wench/Screwdriver icon.

The Heidie Saga part I

Reactions: 
I recently got the opportunity to test a K75 Heidenhau rear tyre for the KLR, here are the pics I took just after the wheel was fitted. many thanks to Harold at BikeGear for the opportunity!

The K75 has a nice aggressive look.
New K75 and well worn K60...
Close up of the wear on the K60. This is after approximately 8000 Kilometers, the best wear I have ever had so far from a rear on the KLR. After the test I think I will be back on a K60.
Another comparison between the two. The K75 is not a tar tire but as I do a bit of commuting as well we want to see how it holds up in this regard, many DS riders want a agressive dirt tire that does have some tar use as well. I think in this respect I will be able to give it a good test.

Now all I have to do is go and put some kilos on the tire... or is that tyre?.
I'm no good at DIY. I'm terrible with computers, too. And decorating. But I can change a tyre. Gwyneth Paltrow
