G'day Fellas.
I went down to Nerriga for prepping the UMTC land for the Winter Rally. Looking through some photos I found this one. Would be late 80's at Oallen Ford. Me on my plunger with my old mate Muskydog on the tank. In her 12 years of riding on the tank she did 250,000 Km on the BSA and Honda and up to 250kph! She's been gone for over 20 years now but I still think of her every day!
Cheers.

It's Old Scabbytank, bought in 1980 in it's first incarnation c.1987.

The first time I rode her, I had to pull into a bus stop because the plugs were fouling up and someone driving opposite stuffed his car into the one in front.

Yeah baby, best compliment ever. *eek*

And now, you lucky, lucky, lucky people.

What you have all been waiting for...

Ladies and Gentlemen, I am so proud to present....

The Awesome and Majestic, Throbbing, Red, TRT766R.
Photographed shortly before being flogged for £65 quid (I think), then thrown into Bristol docks a week later, poor new owner, whatever his name was..

I mean, if you ever wondered why mankind is surely doomed then think on that, my friends and please, please, I know you are envious, I know you wish you could have been the dashing young man astride the mighty red beast but know this, I do not think anything less of you for having been bereft of such a wonder.
