Starting with a Ural Indian it is odd, but the Nordian is even stranger, to waste a Norton Featherbed frame to make a modest performing Chief handle seems a contradiction to me

Anzac is more than a holiday, football match or a biscuit it means somebody died for the freedoms and the lifestyle we enjoy today. Unfortunately these days like your right to vote very few realise how lucky we are, this has cost thousands of men and women their life all for future generations to see it as a holiday like Queen’s birthday weekend and little else, beside Christmas Day or Easter this is possibly our most revered holiday. When I was a young man a lot of diggers were still alive from WW1 & WW2 now none are left from the Great War and sadly WW2 veterans are in small numbers as well Korean and Vietnam vets are shrinking in numbers, sure later soldiers from Desert Storm and Afghanistan are still around and are just as important but they were sent by Australian Governments to fight for democracy in other lands, our WW11 vets fought for our very existence, something a lot of people have no idea what may have happened if they lost that fight and these men and women are to be not only respected but honoured by all of us, Lest we Forget

Many years ago Indian’s were worth nothing, I saw a Scout advertised recently at over $30,000 and a couple in bits for $10,000 to $12,000 each hard to believe they were once this cheap. By the way it looks like UK is the place to buy if the time machine is working!

Its the first Sunday of the month, and your Association has a run on right? Wrong it was vetoed last night by text to your phone (love modern tech) and for two reasons one its hot and two its the airshow weekend, we also cancel ride events if its below zero or pissing rain for obvious reasons safety first. The good thing is next months ride is to the same place for those wishing to attend unless nature has other things in mind

It was a fantastic weekend good weather, great rides, nice food and happy participants, what more could you ask for, thanks to Noel Thornby for making such a fine rally. Report will follow in Section News

The good thing about this ride was our Club Captan was out on his C347 after 3 years of excuses. The ride report is in the Section News area
