    Thinking probably safe to aim for Autumn 2021 (booked my 640 in for a major top end overhaul, and bottom end spec check just after Xmas with an LC4 legend so don’t want to miss the spot).
    Currently gauging interest.
    Cheers

    Previously has been held on the weekend before the Melbourne Cup, Victorians sometimes take the Monday off to make a long weekend with the Tuesday public holiday.

    Looks like we may go into lockdown again with 17 new covid cases. I had been thinking of taking the GS to the Dargo rally.

    Yep 34 now i think, got out from quarantine hotel is the news.

    Fuck me who would have guessed.

    Back into hermit mode.

    Edit, thought i heard 34 on the radio but seems that is not the case, new numbers are quite a bit lower.

    Yep me and Mrs B went out for a ride and some lunch in the Hills, we stopped at Nairne fish and chip shop and heard the news. Owner had just taked delivery of 300 chooks and 600 pieces of fish. He wasnt happy.

    Fish and chips were nice tho. We sat in the park over the road under a tree enjoying our lunch then took the dirt roads home.

    Howdy. Who can I contact on the northern side of Adelaide to do some minor mods to my canvas saddle bags? I need some new plastic buckles stitched in or modded for D rings perhaps.

    This is a real long shot, but about a century ago, there was a leather works shop in Hahndorf that did custom work. If they're still there, they may be able to help.
