Quick Introduction
« on: 24.11. 2019 23:21 »
G'day all, I've recently acquired an A10 Golden Flash (1959) in original (ish) condition; navigated the historic registration process and am now on the road.  I've been riding solos and outfits for the last 40 years, and am really enjoying the challenge of learning the engineering concepts and different controls used on a much older bike.  Been around long enough to realise the value of shared bike wisdom from other more experienced operators and am looking forward to sharing and learning from you all.  Thanks for letting me join the group, picture attached.

G'day Rj  *welcome*
Nice bike mate. Trying to work out where that pic was taken. Overlooking Lake Illawarra, maybe Mt Kiera or Mt Kembla.
