Hi Peter,
You are welcome to join us next year; others are coming!
Andrew has another Mach III; he will bring it next year.



Hi Richard, Just might take you up on that, would be a long ride for me 500k on top of the 1000k return from Kal + running around.
Hope to see you at the 2 Day IHC Rally next year will talk about it then. *beer*

Great pictures mate.
What's the local take on the bent copper who used to own the pub.
Did he fit up the Micklebergs?
An interesting tale if the truth ever comes out.
cheers

Hi Peter,
Yes, see you in march; I have lodged my application.

Olev,
Don Hancock owned the pub. He was an Ora Banda boy; went to school there with my dad.

The Mickleberg story is a controversial one.

Great run Richard. Brilliant to see you enjoying the fruit of too many hours in the shed. I'll be into it next year. Sadly missed this one.

Good to see them all battling on through the sunny weather. Gosh, imagine what biking could be like if you didn't expect it to rain as soon as you pick up a helmet. I know fierce heat is probably worse but that's no problem for a whinging pomme.

I drove in the NT from Darwin down to Alice and the rock a few months ago. I was in a little Toyota hatch - boy was it hot when you stepped out and away from the air con. I mean hot. Soon got a real thirst for those ice cold and thin beers out there.

I feel thirsty already
