A Bunch Of Oldies

Post  2wheelsagain on Fri 11 Sep 2015, 2:55 pm

Looks like we're a bunch of oldies.
Looking at the ages of those having a birthday next week is scary Shocked
Average age of this lot is 53 lucky that's not necessarily the maturity age Laughing

Sorry for the misspelling I meant USISSIES


Had a quick peek at their website - you have got to be kidding me!!


The members of the National Committee met in Melbourne on Saturday 28th August. It is usual for the National Committee to welcome invited guests to the meeting.

Obviously, ordinary folk are not able to attend. Shocked  Oh well, probably didn't miss much eh!

A few people I've worked with have tried to get me to join since I was old enough to be a associate member (apparently 40 give you full membership now), sorry, not for me, too much wank, too much structure, not enough fun!

That's probably my fault, I told her if she was going to the National Meet she had to join the nut house, she'll be 17 next week.................17 feels like forever ago, I was riding a KLX250 and driving a XW Futura.

Worked from when I was 14, $400 for the XW (imagine that  Shocked ) and $900 for a 12 month old KLX 12 months earlier 

The XW is one of those "I wish I'd kept it" cars, factory 4 speed, disc brakes and bucket seats with a 221 six (3.6L)

1968 Ford 440 Cortina - blew the motor up just outside West Wyalong Christmas of 1975 on the way home on leave, cost me my whole xmas leave pay to get another block fitted and back on the road.

Sold a 4cyl Capri rolling chassis just before we moved here to Tassie, unfortunately there were no big spenders around so only got $250 for her (rust included), was planning to shoe-horn my 460cin Ford big block into it, ahh dreams..... Very Happy
