  1. Gday my name is Geoff, I live in Newcastle. last time I owned a road bike there was no Internet and a post was something vertical on the side of the road.
    I gave up riding on the road as a 19 year old, as I was sure I wasn't going to see 20 if I continued doing so. Anyway I recently bought a new Triumph Bonneville T100 and love being on the road again. As most of you already know riding a bike is the most fun you can legally have using the road.
    I now want to purchase another bike, perhaps a BMW R1200GS, or even the new Triumph tiger 1200 adventure as the minister of war and finance has shown a liking for 2 wheels also. Only problem is she has as many reasons against as I have for, so I may have to wait a little while. Personally I think all of us should all have a bike for all occasions from a Yammy hundred for rally's (did it once with a mate for a laugh) to gold wings for mardi gras (have not done the latter).
    So, since March, I have clocked up just over 3000km and would be more if the rain would go somewhere else (bring back the drought).

    The first time I saw a bike racing was Kel Caruthers on the 250 Works Honda at the 1964 Matarra Hill Climb!
