Welcome to the IBA Australia forum

:cool: MIXR Great to see you still out and about. You never know who you see on the road good to see you caught up with a few of like minded people. Sounds like a plan retire before the muster. Hope to see you there or somewhere out on the road one day
Hi Lynne. Won't be the same without Kipper. I bought the big Victory for him and although we only did 45,000 kms on it, 40,000 were with him on board, plus all the miles on the R, GSA and in the sidecar. Damned hard to ride the same roads without my little mate.

Had to sell it when he was gone (It was Kipper's bike!) and settled on a new GS. Unfortunately :D I've taken to doing the big distances again. I'm annoyed that I didn't buy the Adventure again as the tank on the GS is too small. Can't believe I'm even saying that! Must be screwed in the head!

Anyway, chatting with Nico got my interest up again. I look forward to catching up with Davo's old crew. See you in April.

Mick, I really enjoyed catching up with you and and Kipper in My Beauty many years ago whilst we waited for the other riders to arrive. I also remember the heavy rain that fell as Toura arrived, never forget that mate. Gee time passes so fast, we have to savour every moment before it is lost forever!

Must have been one of the early rides on the Victory. Rode home in a massive thunderstorm.

Hi Mick,
If you could knock up a sleeping and viewing basket like that beauty for me , I would be more than happy to be your pillion on a SS1600 and get named on your certificate !!:D:D:D What a great memories you and Kipper created together!
 
Cheers Ian. Having re-ridden many of the roads we travelled to scatter his ashes and having gone back past those places again on other rides this past year, I'm always amazed at how well he did it. It all started as a bit of fun, but quickly got serious when the rides turned into FarRides and more.

The further we travelled, the more weather protection he needed, so the boxes got bigger and better. We met many motorcyclists and dog owners who wanted construction and attachment details. Some even wanted to ditch the missus off the back (said quietly) and take their dog as pillion instead.

Yep - Many memories.

I hear you and understand where you're coming from. :(

Thanks Nico for chewing Mixr's ear :eek:

I look forward to catching up in April at the Muster & for a long overdue HUG ;)
