for those asking about dutch
« on: 24.04. 2020 08:46 »
I was down at BJ's this morning buying a couple of 1/4" bsf studs.
Talking to the lady behind the counter, she reckons dutch was next door buying guzzi bits sometime in the last couple of days.
So at the very least, he's not in lockdown and he's not dead and not in jail (yet)
cheers

I'm pretty sure it's dutch. I know from his posts he deals off BJs and Tom Newell next door.
The lady knows him and confirmed he rides a 2 tone BSA.
I am simply telling you that he seems ok so you can stop worrying about him.
cheers

G’day.
I’m trying to track down a member of the BSA A7 & A10 forum https://www.a7a10.net/forum/index.php . I am the Global Moderator “muskrat” down in NSW. His nick name is duTch and rides a two tone (red & blue) BSA A10 and also a Moto Guzzi. I was told he was in your store 2 months ago. He is a valued and loved member and we are worried he hasn’t been on line for 6 months.
If you know him or he comes in could you PLEASE as him to contact me or the forum.
Thank you for your time.
Stay safe
Musky

Good morning
Dutch is fine.  He was in my shop last week.  He hasn't been working so maybe he doesn't have internet access.  I don't have his contact phone number, but when he's in the shop next, I will let him know of your concerns.
Regards

So he's alive and well.

I also contacted the QLD Guzzi owners. They are having a club meeting tomorrow night and will ask if anyone knows him.

This sounds very positive, except for his hermitage. It's hard to believe one can't find a bit of free internet use in Queensland, like hotel lobbies, cafes, etc. I think Dutch would be shocked or touched or both if he knew how many people have been concerned for him. I, too, tried some roudabout detective work, knowing he had done business with the late Les McKitterick and believing Les has a son who may have taken over the business. This was to no avail.

I am certainly feeling better for the sign of life (considering the fires near him) but still don't understand the dead air. There was nothing at all contentious in Dutch's conversations before going quiet.

Dutch, if you're reading, get writing!   *smile*

Happy to Know duTch is well enough to be still riding a bike. Thanks Musky for letting us know. We all free to drop in, out or off the page. That's what is great about this forum.
