Damn it... sounds like I missed a nice ride .

going to Sydney again over Easter.... and one other w/e... not sure when yet.

maybe in April/May I can get away, found my 650 with a front flat last w/e I think it feels rejected since the R1100R moved in .

In August I plan to go to Norway for a holiday on a retrieval mission

::Pete.. the F650 is still there and not for sale atm .... still got unfinished business for it .

I remember it before the bridge ... There were a few good bridges that crossed the railway line up around Bulli area that were good jumpers too. Probably all gone now.

thats the bush patch we used for our wargames and everything else...cnr of Daisy St and Elliotts Rd...and the old stockyards at the level crossing..dont know what year it was and I dont actually recall it burning out...we lived in Clifford St..our house was bulldozed and now sits squarely underneath the distributor...I go back there to visit but its all unrecognisable now and a little depressing.
I think Towradgi Rd still has the original railway bridge on it..further north I'm not sure..Bulli end of the distributor has all changed so much.

Yup, the main drag is now a shithole. Not much left.

Guests Cakes long gone (shit I loved that place as a kid)
The fruit and veg shops all gone
The wall with the Rex Dry Cleaning is still there: http://goo.gl/maps/GwPMj
That little chinese takeout is still there: http://goo.gl/maps/d90fh

Progress...
