Dunno why he's bringing a van? I've already sold most of it. There's only an airbox lid and a damaged rocker cover left...... Twisted Evil

He dropped in with a huge van but since he'd only bought a holed rocker cover and an airbox lid I chucked 'em through the passenger window and told him to fuck off! Very Happy

Nah, he and his lovely wife Jan arrived on Monday just as I'd arrived in on the roo-jet from Perth. We went and drank beer and had a disappointing meal at the bottom pub and threw the shitheap in the van Tuesday and they are wheezing back off to Bundaberg or whatever tropical hell-hole they come from!

You are all bloody Mexicans down that way, but we don't care as all the footy trophy's live north of the border, so we just tolerate your presence.

"Rossco" is still in the van. Made it as far as Maryborough tonight, 3 hrs to Gladstone in the morning. Our Tom Tom gps sent us on a shortcut between Toowoomba and Gympie late this afternoon. I swear I saw a kid plucking a banjo on his verandah in some old sawmill town in the bottom corner of the Mary valley. I think this was where they made the movie "Deliverance" , really creepy. All the buildings look to  have never been painted ever, but people still lived there.
A pic of the vans internals, I'm glad it fitted in , or Pete would have some new lawn furniture ( my daughters worldly possessions) that are all pulled back behind the plywood

Left side throw down, holed rocker cover and most importantly frame damage. Frame damage nowadays, because most are aluminium, is an instant TL.

For the track bike I've given Ron the perfect frame off the Queensland shitter.
