The last white 'strom at Omeo is mine.

I don't recall Linda and you being at Bruthen or Omeo, only recall you guys rolling up at Khancoban, as wet as a shags after you taking a dip, fully clothed because it was hot, very hot that weekend.

That's was I said.

What happened to Mikey? I recall the road rage incident that left him in hospital and they found the tumour. I always had the feeling that he was a temporary Australian.

Remember he rolled up late at Bruthen, he felt weak when riding through Narre Warren and stopped at an ER, they told him he was dehydrated (the Friday was very, very, very hot - the ambient temp gauge in the CB was displaying 44C), anyway they put him on a drip, re-hydrated him, he feels good and continues to Bruthen.

Next day whilst lunching at Tallangatta he tells some hard-core Harley types all that's wrong with their Harleys (we walked away, dis-owned him).

And then there was the chain smoking.

The roadies that day were Moike (leader), Tim (GSXR), Haysey, Linda (CBee), Martin, Stewy (as far as Mount Beauty), Mikey and me. I may have forgotten someone (perhaps Steve and his Linda - but I thought they went a different route).

Moike lead us on some mighty roads - Yabba Road was the stand out, never miss an opportunity to ride that again.

Wasn't it Linda who had one of those turntable jigs in her tiny frontyard to turn the bike around?

No idea what happened to Mikey....he had that roadrage incident where some bozo ran him down (which also was yet another write-off for the WTF1, it's THIRD!!).
Came away with all sorts of injuries and one of the scans discovered a pre-existing brain/ spinal tumour which would have killed him within a few months.
So, in the end he owed his life to the bozo in the Holden Ute who ran him down.

I think he gave the bikes away for a while, then bought a BMW tourer, some RT or LT.
