    Great - of all the photos not to show up on my screen, the farewell shot has to be the one. Thanks for taking Bacon, and us on some wonderful adventures.

    Bacon was very happy with the upgrade from my original bmw 650 to the Ktm990. He begged for a trip so off we went ...

    So GazzaFish, it's been a couple months, is Bacon still with you? Any plans on releasing him on the world again?

    Yep. Bacon is relaxing here sitting out covid-19 staying safe, staying home. If anyone is leaving Melbourne on a ride, PM me and im sure Bacon would love to continue on....and get moving again... He's starting to look a little bored. :)

    Bacon always had a soft spot for KTM's since he visited the factory in Mattighofen - hard to believe it's nearly 10 years since he travelled with me !

    image.jpeg Great to see my little friend Bacon again, we shared many a moment on his journey back from Europe to New Zealand with me back in 2014. As we are about to have a travel "bubble" with Australia maybe it is a good chance for him to come back over here?
