I remember - here we go one of those I remember stories - but this is true. Usually when we hit the black top I scamper off and the group have trouble catching up. A couple of years ago we had a beer with Thrasher at Moonan Flats pub then headed off to Frying Pan Creek. Later next day I pushed as hard as my skills would allow through the range to Dungog and two crazy buggers went around the outside in a 25kph corner at lightning speed, a 990 and an old red and white R100GSPD, I was sliding out in the corner scraping the foot peg on an R1200GS, not sure how they did it but over a beer in Dungog, Thrasher said "can't remember Rob there were so many slow bikes", hooligans.

Cheers

Bit like that bloody trailer, it will be dragged in & out one year, not sure which year though,

Reckon a Guzzi should do the job alright, mind you, 'Kenny' put in a good effort all things considered, not bad for a 650cc bike anyway,

As long as Doc don't make no more of them prediction things I should be alright!!!
Cheers

Is that the same as going to bed with problem in hand, you wake up with solution?
