    Henning is in Asia (laos or cambodia building schools or something)

    We usally see him at the Leaf.

    His 1 million k boxer got a write up in this pommy classic mag recently (no mention of his new engine or 100 pots though:lol3).

    I might go, a lot of people dont like "the ditch" I dont mind it.

    Been wondering about what the campsite is like after the floods earlier? :eek1
    so no-one knows if Henning's back from overseas? :ear
    Just tried his mobile - it's switched off, home number has changed,
    any of the TVR mob know anything?

    It wasnt Classic bike, or MC Mechanics or The Motorcycle (no?) but along those lines... it has a pic of two old '60s bonnies on the cover.

    All the campsites in the Goodradigbee valley are pretty much non existant. The rain in March has pretty much destroyed the area. The Alpine/Capital site is now ( whats left of it) appears to be mainly rocks & debris. May need a rethink about the site. The Franklins had the valley fenced off at one stage at the road junction because all their boundry fences were destroyed

    Who's riding the silver R65??? Is it VKD56? Loved that bike! Terrifying but fantastic memories of the TTT Rally on her.
