Question Tigers colour?

Has one of the Tigers changed from Red to White for the tropical North or what?

The lads have made it to Derby (lovely place) via Gibb River Rd.

Here's a link to Phils' Spot Tracker.

Where next?

Derby

Just spoke to Philth he was feeling a little crook when they got into Derby, his beer levels a little low, they are pulling the helmets back on and heading for Broome for the sunset, then topping up those levels. Bastards!

Did they say where exactly they were going to top up their beer levels? I'm in Broome at the moment and wouldn't mind catching up with them.

Hi reefdog Phil and Bob are back in QLD today im sure heel be along shrtly to give you some feedback!

in the meantime here are some photos I was supposed to put up yesterday but got swamped


A hobbit in the bath - look a bit like a wet cat doesnt he


a self explanatory shot


A boab tree that looks like it needs cleaning!


Oh wait on closer inspection it was phil nose that needed cleaning!


Podge and Bobby enjoying the view (this one is a couple of days old however it appears as though it only came through this morning - Blame telstra)


The holy light shining upon Bob as they have hit Broome! I think this drink was for luck as phil had been let off by the fuzz that afternoon!



I wonder if Phillip chased these camel like he does most other he sees ?


After a few of these photos I told bob to piss off as I didnt need to see them any more


And this is what I got sent for my troubles.

The boys are heading back today I think ??? Or maybe even last night it was dependent on flights!

So once more the tigers where cleaned and put back in storage.






Sorry for the delay - I think the next big motorbikin aqquisition will be a smartphone for phil so he can upload to Smugmug on the run
