    Welll young fella, lemme tell you a story.

    A long long (well, 7 years) time ago when I first ventured into Tinderland, I found an ex Chadwicks model. 100% bona fide . Mmmmm. MMMMM. Could she walk into a room and turn heads. Back in her prime, her and Julian MacMahon were the model couple paired up on assignments. Showed me all her portfolio of pics and assignments etc.
    For all you old folk playing along, of interest, her mum was the Limits Biscuits woman on TV. Remember her? Not bad for an old stick either.
    Nutty as a fruitcake, brain was fried from years of party pills. But hot diggetty-damn.
    No, I didnt save her either :)

    I got NZ$24,050 (AUD$23,300) for this last month.
    My reserve was 12. I couldn't believe the response - I had calls from Australia and there was a savage bidding war.
    Basically, people can't travel so they're spending their money on other things.

    Fortunately, the first thing the new owner did with it was take it for a long ride.
    He says it's going into his new MC museum in Arrowtown, but it's a riding museum, and I should give him a call when I'm in the area...

    I spoke to him on Sunday, he is fine. A little pissed off that he can't ride though, just like most of NSW and Vic
