We are hoping to make it this year.

If you catch up with Billy on his DR with the surfboard in Tassie say from us. Really great kid who is riding around Australia.

Oh, and make sure that you see the Bay of Fires as they are awesome if you like beaches.

If you were to go to the Sidecar Rally, you may see outfits like this one.

Really good. Tons of grunt as was to be expected. Handles nice but is bumpy. I reckon that's cos the suspension is designed to have weight on it and so far I've only ridden it empty. I reckon, loaded up, me and the missus, cubbla slabs and some ice it'll smooth out. I'll let yus know.

Its turned out all right.

Doonie asked me to be a crush test dummy, (he lives just up the road), took it for a short ride. It tracks very well, front end very good, lots of grunt down low, the 4 speed gearbox will be just fine.

Love the Left handle thumb operated sidecar brake, but needs to be fine tuned, so does the sidecar suspension.

Proof of the pudding will be in the next few weeks when He and Maz head down to Tassie.

I'll be with them to take photos

Chris

Planning on heading to this rally on the Thursday.

Can you please bring some Monarch stickers as the one I had on my bike is coming off and needs replacing.

I know that I am not officially a Monarch, but like to support the club who were so kind to us when Matty had his accident last September.

Matty's arm fractures have still not healed, so he can't go back to his job of rendering. Although he has found a new skill and is learning how to repair mobile phones, has even decided to start his own business and complete a small business course while his bones are healing.

Hi Tracey,

not hard to join up.

Clubs are generally good value.

The monarchs recently raised a shitload of money for a member who lost his lower leg in an accident not of his own doing. (car t boned him or similar)

see you at Carters beach

cheers
Gaz

Yeah I know, maybe we should get a family membership this year as hubby is a member although I go to more activities.

Is Kaz going to Carters Beach too?
