The night before the start


We are at the start of the Biggest International motorcycle event in the world.
We have passed the saftey check and also been briefed with the Route and symbols used.

The public is amazed with our machine and that someone is going to be riding in  he sidecar.

We have been doing laps arround the packing lot with our Flag in Full Flight.
Tommorow we change the Kangaroo to the Australian Flag by popular demand.

It looks like we will swap and change the flag sevearal times along the route.

The bike is going well, had a few minor problems with loosing a bolt on the exhuast and also replacing the broken glass on the fuel cap.

Reg this glass didnt work and we know have a hotel Card cut to shape and will know the number of Donimo's pizza soon.

The bike seems to be going strong and we are certainly exciting being here amoungst some really neat prepared machines.

We ahve just finshed the Gala dinner and again i think this was great.
Jsut so many peope we know.

The sidecar we doanted to the Organisers is going to be awarded to a team at the organisers discresion.

It was well recieved and will be a coverted trophey.

Anyway we leave for 210 miles tommorow at 7.04 am and 26 seconds.
This is our starting time.

I'm sure this is for logistics at the photo shoot  at 8.00 am.

More later.
