    I have never met Kipo and not sure if I had seen a pic of him prior to staying at the Blinman Pub but there is a pic of him up on the wall there and a reference to him riding naked through town. Somehow knew straight away that pic would be him. Hey Kipo the pub owes me an omlette as the cook never showed up in the morn, feel free to claim it :)

    The term 'Legend' just doesn't seem good enough Pete.....:lol3

    His dad was born in the pub, there's a Kipling family history book in a B&B up there, his grandmother lived in what's now the Rose Cottage on the southern end of town, and he has been pissed in the front bar, and out on the roadway, over 1000 times!!! And that doesn't include the incident of riding a postie bike down the main street naked.:eek1

    Funny story the postie bike thing. In the background of the photo is his good mate Doc. Kipo got on the postie bike, tucked the tackle under him to avoid total embarrassment in front of the tourists etc (this was a charity event) but he didn't know that Doc had switched off the fuel.....the kick starting out the front of the pub was a classic apparently.....:lol3:lol3:lol3

    I'll be thinking of people like you, and others in this ADV community BR, as you work hard to pay your taxes, helping to fund my retirement, whilst I'm off soaking up the countryside.......:lol3

    Adios amigos........:wave:rayof

    Great ride report & pics MB.:lurk
    Have been doing a few rides mid week myself, but just on my own, still pretty slow, can't risk any damage to the arm for awhile.

    Getting back into it slowly.

    Thanks Brett, you would have loved those nice easy enjoyable riding type tracks.

    Great to hear your recovery is going well, more than what I can say about poor Iryna ... back on the chemo yesterday for the next 6 months, the latest wonder drug isn't working.

    Sorry to hear that Kym, hope the new stuff works well for her, say hi from Vicki & me, best wishes.

    Any time you want to go for an easy half day cruise get in touch, trying to build the arm up slowly without ripping it apart again.

    Cheers B

    Maybe not the right place for a ride report, so suffice to say that the day couldn't have been better (look at that sky), the tracks that PBee selected were great fun on the big Cats, and we spent some time with nice people up at Balaklava.

    Podge even got his Tiger computer programs going and tweeked up the Cats...

    cheers
