Yeah!  I mean, come on!  Everyone knows he holds the record for most Test runs without a century.

What's a Century in Test, is that like a 100mph License Pass???

Oh I know, you mean that Bloke on the Hair Transplant Commercial with the Fake Tan.  cheers

I couldn't help myself,  evil

I grew up going to the Speedway to watch a Test Match.

Solo Speedway Bikes

Australia vs Great Britain

Jack White, Steve Reinke, John Titman (Aust) against Nigel Boocock, Chris Pusey Peter Collins (GB)

My Aussie Heroes were people like Jim Airey, Billy Sanders, Phil Crump. Then later Jason Crump and Chris Holder.

Later I found other forms of Motorsport and Wayne Gardner, Mick Doohan, Casey Stoner.

As far as Cars I never miss Bathurst following Peter Brock and Colin Bond when I was young. I still watch it even though I was not a big fan of V8 Supercars. This year is a good one.

I watch F1, Moto GP and Nascar, I follow Drag Racing when I can.

It's good to be back having a go myself again and thanks to the internet I can follow Land Speed Events in the US as well.

So I suppose Cricket is not really on my Radar.

Pete  cheers

Mike, there was so many great Speedway riders and Greg was one of them

Re painting a few bits.

I was a Postman and rode a Postie Bike (Honda CT110) for for 15 years so I set up this a similar type of Gearshift so I can keep my foot inside my Fairing.



It is set up as a Race Pattern Push Down to change up through the Gears. It worked great this year.

Seeing I've reinstalled the original mechanical Coolant Pump, I have to do a little re plumbing on the Cooling and re install the Thermostat and it's Housing to even out the Coolant flow to each cylinder. Don't you just love V Twins 2 Strokes  grin

I can't put it back in the original position so a bit of improvisation is called for.

Pete  cheers

Just like my house.  The mower is parked, the lawn is dead, the bikes are running great.  Good job.  It is alive!

I thought it appropriate at this time to post this link the the video that, no doubt, inspired Pete to get into two strokes.
