Anywhere but the fast food joints in Cooma (maccas, kfc and subway)
My old job had me visit Cooma every day, coffee at the Cafe on the SE corner of the round-a-bout was always good. And the owner Judy was always up for a shit stir

Suspension Work

I have arranged for Frank Pons to come down to Numeralla on 7/8/9 March, not too far away to do another of our suspension setup workshops. We've now done over 300 bikes over the last 10+ years, strip, service, revalve, setup etc at a relative bargain price.

If you would like the 'works rider' treatment from the legend himself, pm me with an email address and I'll explain more.

Might give him a ring, thinking of putting some front fork damper valves in
make the old style forks work like modern cartridge style forks

Bummer, I'll be in transit back from Speedweek.

Hey Baz, you could go the "extended forks" look and transplant some modern dirtbike forks onto the old beastie, Dennis Hopper would be proud.

Don't worry Tom, been thinking along those lines for extra travel,
Biggest trouble is my short-arse legs
