Default 2006...Mt. Baw Baw

Late September.

Man, 2006 was starting to look like a race.
Remember Guenther's Strom, bent on the Bonang? (just flip back a page)

Yo, it was written off after I'd repaired it the first time around with 2 boxes of parts I'd bought in Canada...
Bought it again after Guenther's little prang and turned it into the first of the WTF's.

Goodie took it for its maiden ride on a sunny Sunday....

And as to the wondrous ways of that Strom....it was sold to Mikkey in 2010, I think.
Then this happened:

...and it was written off the 3. time around !! Once more, with no substantial or structural damage (but I rather guess, due to the unobtainable body work that Mick Hone couldn't even quote on...so they wrote it off.

And Andrew (haysey) got it in his garage

Bloody good bike that!!
Written off 3 times and still perfectly rideable, nothing bent on that one.
Suzukis, man....only Suzukis!! Can't kill 'em with an axe!
(do they get better with each write off? Sorta, like a good vino needs some ageing? Perhaps I should make Andrew an offer one day...)

Default 2006....Marysville Postie Run

Late October


The Balla-Rats were back for more!!
This one was for real and it was on for young and old.




Tim was there...and Young Will from the CBD on his L-plates and hell, was he up for some educational paint-swapping!


Busted chains, this and that falling off, some towing....and laughs 'til the tears came. In hindsight, much of what I saw that day would prove a huge bonus lateron.






Go for a giggle and some more pics:

Default 2006....AusTouring Rally Khancoban

November 2006

The first AT-Rally

Quote:
Great weather, plenty of warm sunshine, plenty of good miles and best of all....GREAT company and loads of laughs.
Graham (whitey) from Sydney, Dave(dmtl15) from Nowra and the bunch of clowns from down south.....it nearly turned out to be a V-Strom gathering....lumped with the 2 DR650s a Suzuki-tribe-meet....and adding in 2 Budgies and Beemer it was a riot.

The burn up the Alpine Way was a cracker....like the day before when a Strom and a DR went mental across the top from Kiandra in an effort to "shake the old fart" ....it nearly made the Postie-ride a few weeks ago pale in comparison
Couldn't say it much better.
