G'Day Josh
Its a pity you just moved away from Perth. Hows the Flash doing. Riding her often? Mine stuck for the past 6 weeks for the bwnd pipes & silencers. Hoping to fire her up this week.
Take care

Anji,
They wouldn't let Josh in. He is too young and innocent and pure.
I doubt they'd let Orabanda in for the opposite reasons.
For overseas members who haven't heard of Ulysses its a big bunch of about a million antisocial pensioners who ride motorcycles with a motto of 'Grow old Disgracefully'
Junior members are allowed in at 45 years. You need to be 55 to be a full member.
I'd like to join but the local branch is full of poseurs and beauracratic harley riding pr*cks.
(unkind people have said I'd fit in perfectly)
and be careful about buying bridges and cattle stations from people you meet in the pub.
cheers

Innocent, I've seen more knobs than a locksmith,,,,,, oh hang on,,,,,,, *smile*.

Hi Anji,

Saw an advertisment for you and your sons business in a motorcycle rag at Orabanda's place, looks like fun.

All is well in Cairns, should have about 350 miles on the bike this weekend, good luck with the finished project, very much looking forward to seeing your photos.

Josh,

3 more years and you will be eligible to join as a junior old guy yourself.

Sorry Anji, I can not remember (maybe I am ready for the Ulysses club ;)), if you badger Orabanda he might be able to find it, it was in his shed on the bench when I was there last.

Josh,
I'm 44 a month later... I remember my 35 like it was yesterday, must have grabbed the throttle too hard at some stage, the next few years seem to have occurred in about a month!

Hi Anji,
No, I won't be there.

However, Tony Mettam from Kalgoorlie will be (riding a Kawasaki VN1300). He is a mate, and likes riding anything (and motorcycles including my BSAs), so see if you can track him down.

I think the book was Classic Bike; it's buried in the shed with many others at the moment..
