Well Done Guys!

"I love a sunburnt country, a land of sweeping plains.
Of rugged mountain ranges, of droughts and flooding rains.
I love her far horizons, I love her jeweled sea.
Her beauty and her terror, the wide brown land for me."

So what's the same?
Both have no cruise control.
Both have diabolical side stands.

Our Ted (far left) looking happy. He doesn't know :lol:
Of course, there is the fact that he is 90 in three weeks and still riding BMW motorcycles...

Ted's big surprise!

If you want to hear why? You'll have to quiz Ted...
Many thanks to the creative talents of our very own Swampy.

G’Day Slackers,
I’ve been workin’ like a dog (a Mongrel Dog) to get this vid out quickly while everyone is still on a high. What a great turnout and big shout out to Ross from the Club and his supporters to pull this event off. Well done to all concerned.
See you on the other side!

:P
