We will see Boys.
The progress on site and the budget overlooking corporate beancounters will tell in few weeks.
Sure it would be awesome but I would need to thinker a little more about it too.
There are costs for taxi, flights, accommodation and renting a scooter of some sort.
So be not upset if it doesn't pan out that way.

Smile Perfect Guest!!!!

Hi Ralf Et Al.

That's an amazing recount of your adventures, we (and I am sure I speak for all the Australians) are so glad and happy that our beautiful Country has left you with such wonderful memories and touched your soul, in the end that is what life is all about, the rest, incidental to the end game.

From a personal viewpoint, I must say that I/we are humbled and a touch embarrassed by the exalted praise. In reality, we have passions which include riding, cooking, drinking and sharing our humble home/life with like minded souls. We love having guests, old friends that become new friends and new friends that become old friends along with sharing our good fortune in life via motorcycles, food , drink and experiences.

Ralf, it was an absolute pleasure to have you as our guest of honour and of course dear friend (you were too generous with your gifts, thank you again - I will report on the cognac as soon as I smash it ) and I said to you, you are welcome anytime, providing of course, we happen to be in Australia! I love those photos atop of Mt. Keira - not a bad run less than a mile from my home!

We need to hone your Vespa skills ( we'll work on that next time) but you certainly did make that F3 your own - I wasn't sure you were going to give it back, you two certainly made an instant connection.

@silentservice703 (Chucky) - yes that is a Yamaha, I apologised to Ralf for having that track whore in 'his space' but what are you going to do when you have a 23yo living at home trying to step out of Dad's shadow? It was home this week as it was wiped out last outing at Eastern creek and had finished his reapirs and was spray painting it - Ralf (as well as Dino & Russ) saw it as a work in progress actually here's the almost finished product - only missing the decals and of course it has a change of colour scheme.


Before and after - pretty reasonable job first time out with a spray gun!

BTW Ralf, that second pic is taken where your bed used to be - it's back in the (normal) guest room now not the special guest room

It's been crazy busy around here, but I am so so glad I saw this post!

I'm flattered and slightly blush by Rob's and all the positive posts about my visit to Australia.
Honestly, never ever did I read anything were peoples wrote as positive about me, may not even my wife in our marriage heydays.
And in fact I met awesome peoples in Australia, besides all of You, and everyone was very nice, friendly and helpful to me.
It started at Immigration and Customs in the Melbourne Airport, continued with a bloke from England who sold me 5 packs of Cigarettes for 50 AUD, just outside at the smoking area.
The list would go on and on.
You are a happy bunch of peoples down under.
God bless You!
So again thank You all sooooo much for being such great hosts.
And Rob, You, Luciana and Christian You made it deep into my heart.
May this thread will live for ever and will be continued by me about another journey to down under or by someone who got inspired by me to just do it.

Brilliant Rob!
Peoples who don't know me think I'm quite a nice person.
I'm Saxon and we are known to be tough on ourselves and horrible to others.
