I'm not sure if I need Longrider or MickDaNewf to decipher this post for me. Lil help !

 

I don't really care about the gas mileage part....

 

I'd like to hear how "the grog party" went....

 

I always thought a grog was a really large draft beer ?

 

I think he stated he was on a grog or in a grog with "like minded friends !

 

I can't be the only one who would like to hear more....

Normally, "The Grog" is a container in which everyone pours whatever they're drinking. Drinking from the Grog could incur any combination of beer, hard liquor and moonshine all combined.....usually to the drinker's detriment.

on the grog is consuming a large amount of alcahol for an extended amount of time, the 125mph part happened once the photo shoot happened after the railway bridge ride over the last 8 mile to Glendambo. reached that speed very easy but the frontend of the bike was starting to float on the road surface at that speed (125mph) so backed of to 100mph for the last 4mile, the bike was holding the road comfortably at the reduced speed of 100mph.
