Time is flying by I hope you're getting the most out of life.
Im pulling back from a hectic work life to savour some years with the kids before its too late, hopefully be on a scoot again soon. Not long till we ride alongside each other on motor I reckon.

Bill, I can't promise I'll bring the Bronco though it's tempting. Rob can fill you in on my latest efforts

All depends on parts availability and timing. Hmmm... tempting. If not that, then the magic carpet. Sure would be neat to meet in person, finally.

For what it's worth, my lovely black R11 languishes in my garage, having not been ridden for months. Surgery on left hand to deal with severe arthritis means I can barely hang on, let alone manipulate a clutch. Hopefully back in business by this summer.

Only at night
There are more than 100,000 saltwater crocodiles in Australia. They grow more 20 feet long, weigh over 1000 pounds, and bite with a force exceeding the weight of a small car. And yet there are a group of people crazy enough to hunt them. They cruise around in boats at night with nothing more than a big light, a big harpoon, and a gun, searching for pairs of glowing eyes peeking just above the water.

^^ That is a poisonous, rare and protected snake. Probably a hard picture to get (right place & time).

Tiger snakes (Notechis scutatus) are a highly venomous snake species found in the southern regions of Australia, including its coastal islands, such as Tasmania. These snakes are highly variable in their colour, often banded like those on a tiger.

Did it just slide up or did you park on a dead one?
