    A couple of my bike on last weekend's 1,550 km return trip to Marree, Outback South Australia.

    Second post of the bike at this location; stopped here 2 years ago because it just shouted "photo opportunity". All that's changed is the old black 600 motor has gone and a later Hawk 650 motor lives in its place.

    This is in the Clare district, a winemaking and general farming and grazing district.

    And this one, in the northern Flinders Ranges, on the Bunyeroo Gorge road:

    Not really that good a picture, but for the symbolism of it I like it alot myself.

    I took this just arriving in John O'Groats in North Scotland, leaving Edinburgh in the morning. I had had a crash in Cairngorms National Park during the day, which I was exceptionally lucky to ride away from unscathed (as well as the bike). The remainder of the day's trip I just did the miles shellshocked, and only when I had crossed the nearby town of Wick did my thoughts calm down... before me breaking down inside my helmet upon seeing sign welcoming me in John O'Groats. It was one of those moments that made everything worth it.

    Thanks for the shout out, Potski! It's been an absolute blast touring on the TA - we'll keep doing what we can to get some good shots to post. But some of you inmates have definitely been putting the TA through its paces, and have the pictures to prove it. Thanks all for sharing.

    Bought this gem in Summerside, Prince Edward Island this morning... a quick pose at the Confederation Bridge - then a
    brisk four hour ride home to Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. What a fantastic bike... next stop - modification thread :D

    Potski is this the stock windscreen that came with the '99 anniversary model and is that what you still have?
    If so I'm assuming it works good and wondered if it will bolt on to the 1987 model?

    I believe the fairing design was changed on 94-99 TA's and that the windscreen is shaped differently too.
