Hello meggen, and hello to another Victorian.

I`m beginning to think, that I`m only a handful of people in QLD, that has ever heard of a Bandit!!!

BTW, madmax and I thought Hammy's new bike looked OK, took us a while to workout yours had the cheap (single colour) paint job, get 1/2 of it resprayed and we might change our impression on the space shuttle Wink

Very sorry I hijacked your post Meggen.  But you will see that it happens quite a bit around here.

ps.  Welcome to the home of the Banditeer.

Welcome M8.

I stopped in Geelong yesterday trying to get a quick fix for my blown rear shock. Blokes at Peter Stephens (both sides of the road) were quite friendly once they worked out Willow wasn't going to bite, and although they couldn't help me in the short time I had, they did offer some good advice.
