    Cheers on completing a Great adventure. That's allot of kilometers in short time. Sure bet some fond memories were found along the way.
    Great to have you back. I think I screwed something up in the Maintenance forum in your absense

    To and Fro:
    Graeme- I am sure the stats (i.e. miles ridden, kangas jumped, wallabes narrowly averted, oil changes on the rode (saw the pics at Jessica's)) will be very interesting! Can't wait for the video! I think that Tony is suggesting a "Capricorn One" similitude.
    Welcome home!
    P.S. Please send more pictures of Thialand> I am geographically challanged.
