Yamaha XT225 Wash And Wax

Posted in Just something to say, Pictures with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 18, 2018 by getbent57

It has been has been way too long since I gave my motorcycle, 2006 Yamaha XT225, a wash and wax (September 17, 2018).  This summer was really hot with very little rain.  Didn’t want to waste the water.  Every year before the Cape Breton Bike Rally I would give it a good wash/wax.  Not this year.  There is about a week left in September.  So time is time is getting close to having to put it way for the year.  Made it to about two weeks into October last year.  Well see what this year brings.

The_Grand_Tour_GameWhile there is no word let on when season three of The Grand Tour will start.  There is some news to share.  That this years Gamescom (Think E3 but only bigger and taking place in Germany) they announced they were will be a game out about the show.  It is called The Grand Tour Game.  From what I have read.  It will be and episodic game.  There will be new content out with each episode of season three of the show.  Amazon is making the game with their Amazon Game Studios and will be on the PS4 and Xbox One.  From the trailer > here or below.  It looks nice but all so like a cell phone game.  There are some screen shots as well.  They show some four player split-screen, which is cool.  We all so see cars from the past two season.  Not sure when this will be out or a price yet.  Will be keeping my eye on it.

  

 

Cape Breton Bike Rally 2018

Posted in Just something to say, Pictures with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 4, 2018 by getbent57

It is one of my favourite times of year, The Cape Breton Bike Rally (2018).  All ways like watching the stunt show.   Took lots of pictures this.  Think around 92 but narrowed to 24 of the best ones.  You can see them below.  Last year they had the show on a dead end street.  When people packed on both sides.  The run was much smaller.  This year the blocked of a street to give them more home.  So it made it look it was a lot less people there.  Plan to go back tomorrow to buy a shirt.  They have a new design this year.

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

  

First Ride Of 2018

Posted in Just something to say, Pictures with tags , , , , , , , , , , on May 4, 2018 by getbent57

The past few week the weather has been getting a warmer.  So it is time to get my motorcycle, a 2006 Yamaha XT 225.  The only thing is on my days off have been raining.  So this past Wednesday (May 2, 2018) right after supper got it out and ready.  Have done this so may time now it doesn’t take long. The tire pressure for both tires was down.  But that happens every year.   Got the battery in pretty quickly.  Checked very thing over.  Pushed the button and it fired on the second go.  Went for a shot ride.  Everything seemed to be fine.  Now I can start taking it to work.

 

HG Iron Blooded Orphans: Gundam Hugo Update

Posted in Just something to say, Pictures with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on March 30, 2018 by getbent57

A few post back talked about the newest Gundam model kit I bought, HG Iron Blooded Orphans: Gundam Hugo.  Like the other one I put together it was fun to do.  While there are similar in some ways how it goes together.  It’s all so different at the same time.  Which it nice to to see.  This time around I found the plastic filer.  Sometimes when taking the pieces of the holder some extra bits of plastic is left on the piece.  The filer works great of getting rid of it.  Below are some pictures of the finished product.

 

HG Iron Blooded Orphans: Gundam Vual

Posted in Just something to say, Pictures with tags , , , , , , , on March 2, 2018 by getbent57

A few post back talked about the Gundam model kit I bought.  It is the HG Iron Blooded Orphans: Gundam Vual kit.  Still don’t know what the story is behind it.  Just know it was cool looking and I like to put these type of kits together.  Which I did the other day.  It was very much like the old ones I had years ago.  However with a lot more detail and parts.  Took me about and hour and a half to put together.  The instructions were easy to follow.  Even the very small stickers were pretty easy to get into place.

Over all enjoyed put this together.  No glue or paint needed.  Think I might buy another one some time in the future.  Just might all so look up the show this is based on.  Took some pictures of the finished product.  Which you can see below.

Red_Dead_Redemption_2Have some good and bad news to share about Red Dead Redemption 2Rockstar Games announced on their blog, (which you can read > here), that the game has been delayed again.  That being said there is some good news as well.  Because they gave us a release date.  Which (for now?) is October 26, 2018.  This will make it two yeas since they first announced the game.  Was really hoping to play the game this spring.  Not much we can do about it.  They all so shared a few more screenshots.  You can see those by clicking the link to the post above or see then below.
