    kinda old-ish news....

    not sure if its been posted on here, and i'm to lazy to go back thrue pages n pages since i last had internet to check...but..

    Adelaide BMW has handed back the BMW-Motorad license...

    so no more bikes or service on west terrace...

    seems 'honda world' (south rd, melrose park from memory) has taken over the franchise...

    I have you know I've met an SA Governor, Sir Eric Neil. He came to Port Augusta for the Apex Camel Cup we ran. A mate bet me I couldn't get a toy camel on the back ledge of the Gov's limo when his minders weren't looking.



    I won, the camel was there, head bobbing away in the back window as they headed back to North Terrace. :lol3

    He was, and he is really enjoying it. Disregard his face. It's normal for him ;)
    Sidecar on snow / ice is a very special fun :)

    That is correct Gone Again. I am optimistic that the change is for the better. They had gone progressively downhill since leaving Glen Osmond.

    When Team Orange purchases Husky does that mean they might learn some about EFI??

    Been mapping out a rough route from Mt. Bryan East to Yunta for the Saturday on the upcoming Caroona trip to get an idea of distances (see below). :type

    Starters so far include myself, Pete (Pejie) - Definites. Awaiting for two others to confirm, one of whom will likely join us on the Saturday morning from Gawler.

    Any thoughts on the proposed route welcome. Been reading a book on the Sawer family from Pitcairn - a great read if you're into some local history ("The Sawers from Pitcairn" - available at Amazon, both Kindle and print).

    Still looking at options for the return leg to Mt. Bryan East - will depend on what time we arrive at Yunta.

    mind you that doesnt mean i'll be 'automatically' going to Honda world from now on....

    be interested in some feedback if anyone gets some work done there...

    Anyone feel like a three or four hour ride out of Gawler Sunday morning? Maybe to Truro? I'm hanging out for one of their coffees.

    I can't work out the benefits of EFI either besides more horsepower, better fuel economy and lower emissions... I'll keep thinking.... I'm sure it's useful for something??

    Shame if you can't Gary, I have a window of opportunity on Sunday before lunch and didn't want to waste it, so I'll probably head off around 0800 and head towards a Cornish Pasty with sauce and a double shot flat white......yum.

    What are you doing Claude?? Paul is over in Germany so he can't make it.
