    OK.
    I see on ABC tonight there are are plenty of international backpackers in OZ with no way to get home, no work, and no where to stay, and running out of money. !!
    !!!!!!! Super stressful shit.

    I have a a couple of rooms in my house. I’m sure there’s plenty of others out there with room to spare.
    People around the world have given big time to our fire crisis, so now it’s time to give to their kids...
    If you’ve ever been in a situation overseas, and really wanted to be home, you’ll know how it feels. NOT good.

    HOW do we help these (fellow) travellers?

    I'm always picking up travelers and bringing them home for the night or a drink (the wife shakes her head at me) or giving them a lift.

    If anyone has any elderly family or friends in the Lake Macquarie NSW area who may need assistance with shopping etc in these times, I'm more than happy to help.

    Happy to help with parts fabrication and mechanical things. Diesel mechanic by paper but I do enjoy fabrication more so.

    Of note, maybe to the right person, recently I invested in a hydraulic tube bender. Which would assist with roll cages, bull bars, frames, buggies etc.

    I found it hard to get tube bent on the central coast so I tooled up for my current and future projects.
    Currently I have 2" and a 1.25" die.
    Looking to get 5/8" soon for motorcycle racking.

    If you wanted another specific size, I would be happy to pay half for the die if it lives with me.

    Probably not as exciting as a bed but you can come and get bent :)

    Canberra?

    Would there be anyone in the ACT or Queanbeyan who’d have the time to pick up a DRZ front wheel from Googong, and hang onto it till we can work out how to get it down here? (AUS Post?)

    Cheers, Boot.

    Maybe cross post here too; https://advrider.com/f/threads/act-...t-and-surrounds.623350/page-551#post-39978308

    I might be in Cbr next week, or even maybe later this week and could perhaps assist depending on specifics.

    I'm trying to get a wheel of a bloke in Robe , South Australia he says the area is poorly serviced by freight companies but he will see what he can do. Does anyone travel through that area that could drop it off at a P.O. in a bigger town

    Well, no. And yes....
    Old mate decided he wasn’t interested in waiting. Me procrastinating didn’t help.
    So I’m still looking for a wheel.
    Thanks anyway.

    Hi All,

    Calling inmates in Adelaide. I need to get a consignment note printed and delivered to a bloke in Colonel Light Gardens. I've bought an item from him, for courier collection on Monday, but his printer is busted. The consignment note needs to be attached to the parcel prior to collection. Can anyone assist?
