Blog: August 31. Didn’t go to Inverell.

It’s Sunday arvo and I didn’t make it to Inverell for the Scrapheap fund raiser. I hope Chris Laan had a few starters and they had a good time. It looks like the weather was good, so I hope so. It was disappointing I didn’t go, but I didn’t have too bad a day on Saturday, even though it was work. Scott Britnell, a bloke I’d never heard of until very recently, decided to have…

BLOG: August 24. Scrapheap at Inverell next week.

It’s Sunday arvo and I’ve had another big week. I had to spend a couple of days in Sydney, so that shot a hole in things.

They’re off to Nick Dole at Teknik for a service and a workover. If it makes half as much difference to the KLR…

Blog: August 11. I’ve been riding!

I’ve been in the Flinders Ranges, SA, with the Triumph guys, riding my brains out and having the BEST time. I was away 10 days, and just to cap things off, my flights were cancelled yesterday, so I’m running really late with everything. I’m back at my desk now (Monday morning), so as soon as I have a chance I’ll post a few pics and tell about the ride. Check back a bit later. TF
