    Far too flash. Rat with a gold tooth?


    re VJMC Rally - booked in Friday & Saturday nights at the 'rally hub' caravan park. Looking forward to it.

    We can get our strokers just at the back of the pack, load 'em up with oil in the 'zorst and then blast by, smothering them all with two stroke juice! It's one of my favourite things when there are those hardly dangerous things in big groups, like toy runs etc. They just piss me off with their 'look at me, I've got a Harley' & 'we ride Harleys, so we are out front, don't get in our convoy' attitude. Wannabe wankers.

    Sorry, off track.

    Nice machining. Bloody nice. Little details that will have all the old buggars ooing and ahhing.


    Hey, Leigh. You got access to a CNC machine???

    G'day

    Well took it down to the VJMC annual meeting at Victor Harbor here in South Australia. Had around 200 bikes for the show. On the way down I had people stopping at the lights say how nice it was. Made me feel it was worth it.

    Caught up with Leigh (LeighSA) and Ray (TripodTiger) at the show. All in all it was a good day.

    Here is a photo of the bike at the show......

    Thanks guys. Much appreciated. It certainly got lots of oohs and aahs and the trophy was the icing on the cake. Problem is I've now set the bar so high I might not be able to better it but I will try. One thing I did find out though is if I didn't have the chair attached I may have won another category but I didn't because it was not deemed an original option and fair enough too. The competion was fierce this year and the bikes were exceptional and it's only fair that bikes that look like they just came off the production line should win.

    Next year I will enter my GT550 "special" in the modified category if I get it finished in time:lol3

    Once again guys thanks for all your kind words.

    Later
