The day started a few days before when I sent a few texts out to some blokes, I know, with an invite to go for a run to drop into the Obi Obi bike show to see what all the fuss was about. It seemed by all the responses I got saying,.... Read More >>

It was an afternoon show which was something out of the ordinary way of doing things. Another thing that stuck with me, it was a show of both cars, hot rods and motorcycles of all makes and models, which has not happened much in the bike scene of late. Well, the... Read More >>

Hey Folks, this gig I always have marked on my calendar, as these are good honest folk that do a marvellous job looking after the little people with no voice, the children of our community. B.A.C.A®, is not a social club or a motorcycle club yet they probably do more miles and spend more time on their bikes than the most of us.... Read More >>

So we made our way from Canungra at a leisurely pace, looking for a place to put the feed bag on. Made our way to the M1 highway where we waved off Wayne then Stew and the 3 of us left kept that pace. By this time I'm in a world of my own, I had forgotten all about looking for..... Read More >>

Was a picture perfect autumn day, you know the ones when you can feel that little chill in the air and your bike just feels like it has a crispness to it and responds like a stallion on heat snorting and bucking and heads shakes that makes you feel alive?

Well this Koolsville gig was to be held last week, but Mother Nature had something to say about that. As she held a cat4 cyclone up north, which left the rest of us down south with a rain depression that had to be dealt with.
