I'll be there,

It's a part of Oz that I have not been to for at least 20 years,used to live in Wydham in the very early 70's where I bought my 1st Adventure bike, a BSA Gold Flash, don't laugh it was a great bike (2up mind you) when running and handled all the dirt.sand, etc that the North West could throw at us.

I will be on Tuck Truck 2, with plenty of cold Coopers on board. It would have been on its inaurgral rally this weekend, but had a couple of teething troubles(slipping clutch). Oh well, still plenty of time to get every thing sorted out.

Good timing too. A couple of weeks after the Border Run

And as mentioned in the 1st post, it is simply a date to meet like minded people. Trust me, I had a Insurance company and their private invesitagte company trying to pin an incident/accident on me after the 2010 OCR at Wannaring

Cheers from sunny Southern Germany

They're not bad are they... no doubt you told them to fuck off. Did they persist?

Sorry, a gentleman nevers swears, I told them to go and get sexually satisfied in a far off place

It seemed to get their attention as I have not heard from them since.
Care to know the Ins company? I 'll send a 6 pack to the 1st correct nomination, name your poison.

They all learn form each other!!! (insur co)
If it works for one then it will work for them all.
They seem to think cos we get knocked out when somthing happens we are fair game to have ago at as we are normally the last ones to be in a postion to make a statement.
So the game is normally over before it is started, and it is hard to defend a postion when they then accuse you of falsifying statements, fabrication evidence, they are not able to understand simple things like how a traffic light works and cant read a drawing or understand a photograph.(blue light users)
He who speaks first and loudest seems to have the advantage.
Oh and if the other party has a an emotional melt down at the scence that seems to draw a lot of attention as well to give them the advantage.
They also seem to enjoy having a free expense account at you expense with no accountability what so ever. (insur co)
They continually hide behind privacy laws and then run you around in circles when you point out some obvious flaws in the information they are using to expend lots of your cash. (insur co)
I could keep going but that will do for now.
Its hard to tell them were to go when they are about to grab your assets and blow you CR rating.
