    On a trip over the paddock earlier this year, I needed to dump my camping gear while me and The Enemy toured Victoria, staying in places with rooves.
    I posted up on the Melbourne page and had half a dozen offers within the hour.
    Maxx668 was the custodian of said camping gear in the end.

    Thanks to AusGoFar for lending me his crutches when i buggered my ankle in November. It's good to know there's other cripples who can't ride willing to help a fellow rider :)

    Big thankyou to Esperance Powerplant Motorcycles.
    Rang them this morning chasing two Sertao oil filters. They had them on the shelf and straight up offered for us to use their space and their tools after l told them we were on the road travelling around.
    Oil and filter change done under cover while it was pissing down outside.
    Thanks guys and gals at Powerplant Motorcycles.

    G'day Paul, you wouldn't remember me, but I remember you.. I reckon it's been about 27 years since I've seen you.. I'm pretty sure the shop was out on the Highway opposite Hawken Ford.... I'd better drop in next time I'm out that way and say g'day... Buy you a beer or two for your patience with pimply faced kids with broken XL175's...
