That would be cool. I'll be on the sporty again. Drop my name if you want, shouldn't hurt you any on the invite. I've got a friend staying with me from SA for the year. I've thrown his name it in hopes they'll have an open spot for him. We had Rick from cogent up last year. He's probably not going to make it this year, he's not much on long distance travel

Cool beans John I'll email 'em back tomorrow if I don't hear from 'em by then and use your name for some leverage. Yea met Rick and the gang in Febuary as I rode to TDA in FL... GREAT folks, kinda thought he'd prefer to ride with a trailer nearby full of tools and gear so he could tweak and tune.

Thanks for the offer man. Great news regarding the bikes longevity. Going to go for something somewhat old school in design so it should be a fairly simple build...Think XLRTT.

Hey guys
Am I correct to say we met here in South Africa a few days ago?
If so I had a good chat to your dad while waiting in the row for my steak in Clocolan at the Nationals
Cheers
