    Appropriate that you didn't refer to that as beer...

    He's from South Oz, after South Wark, it's probably like the proverbial nectar of the gods.

    They are all so different, really like the feel and love the sound of those single coil pickups through a nice class A amplifier.
    Had a few Gibson LP's over the years but very heavy to gig with..sold the last Gold Top to a mate a few years back...found one in a shop in Melbourne a few weeks back but at 7k...that buys a good motor bike so I'll stick with what I have got...

    single coils through class A amp, each different , i get that. I never play anymore and living in apartments the last two decades rarely plugged in, however.... my older mij Jazzmaster with SD vintage 59 pickups plugged into a Gibson Goldtone amp was sublime, i refer to that combination as the "languid sound".:bubba

    Hey @a2zworks
    You'd better slow down mate.
    There'll be no highlights left for tomorrow.
    To be fair, It is hard work waiting though.

    I’ve got too many projects on the go, and too many interests. So sometimes I just forget about them all and draw.

    On one of the old views from the front you can actually see me looking at the Google car as it was going past and around the corner.

    Your name came up in conversation with John Gourlay regarding your CSR speed record, he and a bunch of mates did the CSR, supported a couple of months ago onboard his 500.

      Scott Britnell has accepted the challenge.
      “I had planned to send my bike to Perth for a casual ride through the Pilbara region. 6 weeks ago Gary Connell put his pulled off an awesome ride to put my Canning Stock Route to his name. Hold up brother!! I’ll take that as a challenge throw down and accept it.
      Time to work up a quick plan.
      Get the support of my number 1 supporter. ✅ Thanks Christan Trainor.
      Redirect my bike to Darwin, call Tim Walker from ‘Bike Me’ to grab my bike and pick me up from the airport. ✅ Thanks Tim.
      Get some slick custom riding apparel knocked up with plenty of ventilation and pockets to carry a couple of protein bars. ✅ Thanks MIRA
      Call a couple of mates and see if they can make the huge effort to drive off into the desert and hide some fuel behind a tree. ✅ Thanks boys (still out there...)
      Get myself from Darwin to the start line. ✅ Thanks Aurora Rally Equipment for such a sweet looking kit.
      Now it’s time to pony up, point this weapon South, wind it on and see if I can go the distance!

    Give a person some vegetables and you feed them for a few days.

    Teach a person how to grow veges and their friends, family and neighbours will have more zuchinis than they can eat.
