They're using a shop front and workshop next door (Bridge Rd side) at the moment but plans were on the table for the rebuild of the old one. Looks to be a mess in the old place. They are positive but obviously devastated at the injuries and losses that people have incurred, including their own...

They're busy at the moment but I'm sure they'd appreciate as much business as they can get.

Glad to hear that they are getting their business back together.

I will be booking my bike in for a suspension upgrade in the next few months.

Cheers, Sol..

Holed up in Adelaide

Had a pleasant couple of days visitng friends of my son in Adelaide this past weekend - heading for Clare today - Port Agusta and on to the Eyre Penninsula later this week.

Hoping to catch up with Kipo as I pass through Port Augusta - see what I can do to help with prep of the Postie bike I'll be using in the Apex Postie Bike Challenge at the end of this month

Then on to catch up with Matty at Port Lincoln later in the week / early next week since I'm in no hurry

Fulfilling the QSC prerequisite

Spotted

I had a look at your Spot log this morning. I thought you were lost in Adelaide, but now I know you were having a look see, then heading out to Mawson Lakes.

If you do make it to see Kipo, can you pat my Yamaha and tell it that the previous owner still thinks fondly of it.
