I was thinking the same Baz. Must be the cold weather wearing them down eh. Sheilas.


On a brighter note, I got my XR repaired by my "little mate" welder, luverly work. He had a crack on Wednesday night, got a spigot attached to the oil tank, and it looked fine to me. He didn't like it, snapped it orf, and said it wasn't good enough, my kinda guy! He obtained the right stuff and finished it on Saturday so it's home now, so I need to clean all the oil off it and give it a service. I need to ask advice from another workshop on how they flushed the main in-frame oil tank, as it will have some shavings in it from some drilling.
My "little mate" also pointed out where my front brake may be losing hydraulic pressure, and pointed me at a couple of businesses that can supply a couple of things I've been unable to buy, so all up a rewarding experience. For the princely fee of $40.
I want to get my 640 up and going too, but at the moment I have a particular set of family circumstances that is taking a lot of my spare time, and may even keep me from the TTT, but I haven't given up on that one, I'd love to go and say g'day to Bev and yerself, and check out that crummy Rossco impersonator too.

Hi Baza
I know of at least 5 from Canberra that are up at the OCR....... Mr Jingellic has been gone for two weeks and I gave him a leave pass for another two weeks. A couple of them are now heading back south but Mr J and Rob are up at Bamaga now. (Cape York). DRF was on his way back to Cairns I think.
Very cold and lonely here in my bed. Lucky I have the two Border Collies except they are shedding a LOT of fur on my bed.

Well I'm about as far from Canberra as you can get, enjoying luvverly warm weather.

Currently in Quebec after 2 weeks doing Canada east coast, 2 more weeks on the west coast, then pick up a new (old) R100GS in Seattle and spend 2 weeks riding it down the west coast US. Then put it on a container to ship back to Canberra.

Shame I had to miss the OCR, but needs must;-)

Cheers
Pete

I'd gladly miss the OCR for that trip Peter. It sounds like you're having a fantastic time, keep up the good work! I'll be cold for you back here, and you can owe me a favour eh?
