    Big thanks to Helinox Australia.
    I lost one of the feet off my Helinox chair 1 a while back.
    I emailed them to see if I could purchase a replacement, they got back to me within a couple of hours and offered to post me a replacement free of charge and had it in the post by the end of the day.
    Top service :D

    Thanks to Gloucester Rego & Auto Repairs, after many flats ex Sydney on my Duke 390 my tyre got a small tear and was beyond resurrection for the rest of my 5 day ride (too many dirt roads on a roadie). Limped into Gloucester, tried a tyre place and a bike place with no luck or help for a 17" rear. Gloucester Tyre & Rego in Kendall St was mentioned, so I gave him a try as a last ditch effort. What a great guy, friendly, helpful & a biker himself. Had a new tyre that would do the job, fitted in no time, free can of drink while I waited and good advice on a pub stay for the night. Bike gear in stock, clothes, helmets, accessories etc. If you need anything bike in Gloucester area he's the man!

    A heartfelt thanks to inmate @BOOTLACE, who kindly picked up some stuff for me from near Melbourne city and put me up for a couple of nights at his place, and loaned me a spare bike to ride too.

    Big thanks to @drzwalker, owner of the Peterborough Hotel.

    On Friday he drove up from Peterborough to Hawker to pick up an injured rider on our trip to the Flinders Rangers and ride with us back to Peterborough.

    The rain meant the ride wasn't going to happen, but he came up anyway and offered his services to the injured rider.

    Thanks to Monaro Motorcycles in Cooma, for actually doing what we agree to, no fuss, good rates, nice folks, just like the old days.
    It's rare these days for a multi-item request to go right, anywhere.

    Big Thanks to @willows who posted some LED globes on the 'Pay it Forward' thread this afternoon, & declined the offer to pay for postage when I'd mentioned they were for the scrapheap adventure ride fundraising ride. Just told me to make a donation :-)
    They are already in the post this afternoon on their way south to Sydney.

    Talk about a Top Bloke!!

    Well - This Thread needs a bump.

    The Lights above worked perfectly & we've just been away this October long weekend with the Scrapheap Adventure Ride, for Down Syndrome NSW where we rode to Evans Head. Had a little slide on a loose corner & damaged the weld on the mount for my pannier.

    So this is to say a big shout out & Thanks very much to Peter at Dorrigo Mountain Resort/Holiday Park.
    A Rider himself with a Katana in the Foyer! He quickly repaired my broken weld - easily (was his previous day job) then proceeded to lend tools & assistance to another rider who needed to fix a flat. Thanks Again :clap:clap:clap

    Peter - A Top Bloke & I'd definitely stay at Dorrigo Mountain Resort again!

    Thanks to @nazza for repairing a damaged pannier after I hooked it on something and tore the side out of it. Excellent service!
    Great bags too. Get some.

    A big THANK YOU to inmate @Doktor O. from the USofA for sending me a very rare spare HID ballast that he had for sale for FREE, just postage costs. What a great bloke.

    The support and willingness to go the extra yard from many in here is unbeatable.
