G'Day indeed! Gawd have we got this to come? and I was only thinking of the early February Dragon Rally a couple of days ago. So easy to plan long cold trips in the warmth of a home sitting room. Wrap up well.

G'day again,
                This is the note U got with the pics.
Rode the old girl down to the Nat Rally in Torquay Vi, made the mistake of going over the Snowy Mts on the way and look what happened. Return trip 2780k's and won the trophy for the longest rider to rally.
So asume Steve went down the coadt from Sydney th Bega then over the mountains and back to the coast in Vic and around to Torquay. Then back via coast to do that many K's. BIG place this, I quite often ride a couple of hundred miles for a hamburger.
Cheers
