After thumbing quickly through TFS and pausing at the occasional tip, it males me wonder how it is that my bike runs at all.

G'day Tomcat.
I haven't got that yet. Wonder if Daithi has that one on pdf? Hint, hint, wink wink say no more. I'd pay for it.
Been to a few race meetings where the Irving Vincent has punted about. OMG it's quick.
Him and Bert are my idols.
Cheers

It appears to be in copyright until 2062, so, discretion is the better part of wallet.

As Dylan said, "To live outside the law you must be honest."  I believe there is a forum policy regarding posting copy-written material (admin may advise), but if it's not posted, hey...
