So I've met this bloke, @ 'Spag' & 'Trout', should have recognised the bike!

Yep, all currently owned by me.
The R100/7-RS bike is currently garaged in Geelong (mainland bike, I hate the ferry), but the rest are in Tassie.
I am looking to add to the stable with an XR650R, to be done up in full ADV style.

Same bike, the photo at the start of the western explorer was taken on the last leg of the Spag and Trout ride.

Hi Dave, currently at sea, home again end of April, looking forward to attending some more rally's.

Nice collection of beasties, only missing an XS650!
Thinking about trying for a '74 850-T, [if money is available!]
Had one in the late'70, a real nice piece of kit,
still kicking myself for selling it in '79, [young & stupid!]

The college of knowledge was last year, now the holder of a certificate of competency of marine engineer class two, steam.

Sailing as supernumerary cryogenics engineer, training to be in charge of the cargo of LNG at -160 degrees C, hence the job name

Sailing next trip as cryo, then off for two trips, so RB is on the cards, just need to finish rewiring the cali 2.

Some 'oldies' @ 'Alpine' last year.






It was good to see these beasties out on the road & rallying!

My mate Peter's Guzzi - 'Christine'. Very different to ride but just winds up and lopes along. No brakes to speak of. 'bars feel like they are below your knees.

Those old Guzzis are a beautiful bike to ride, just kick back and cruise, but no slouches either, handle better then you might think and go well on dirt [with the right tyres]. Wouldn't mind another one, '74 850-T preferably!
