Hi Clubby & Tania: It's Australia Day and it's time to put the engine back in after the drama of dropping it on the floor! I'm a bit nervy about any more mishaps, as there is no time left for me to get more parts from Japan. Anyway, I am looking forward to another 15,000 kilometre ride on this old bike, because she is such pleasure to do big kay trips on!
Looking forward too seeing all the other Tragics again – and thanks to you guys for all your efforts in putting the while event together.

Oh, John, we just love that photo of your workshop and your chassis hanging off the stand on one side, the motor up on the bench on the other, and a whole stack of work to be done in between! Burn the midnight oil, son, and get that ol' banger firing on all cylinders and then get set for your long, long haul all the way from the Northern Territory - that's the Ténéré spirit. Will be great to see you again at Mount Panorama in a few weeks time!
