Hi team

Thanks to everyone who either put in an act,supported the acts, provided some gnomes, provided some groans or otherwise supported the 2nd Ipswich Branch talent quest.

We had a blast, despite the Mt Lindesay branch taking the coveted GOLDEN GNOME and the Ipswich branch plaque! I seriously want to be part of a posse to go and get that back from them :-)

Next year we have to win our Golden Gnome back....start practicing!

Update Tyroola motorcycle tyres

Posted by John (Colonel Bow) on June 13, 2018 at 2:40 AM Comments comments (1)

Just an update to the Tyroola motorcycle site, I ordered my tyres today as my front tyre was $131.00 but my rear one had dropped to $88.00 anyway I found out they do not have tyre fitting partners for motorcycle tyres yet.

However all is not lost as I rang around motorcycle places here in ipswich and found that Ultimate Motorcycles at west ipswich will fit them for $22 each. So now with delivery ( $55) to my house and fitting the total cost to me is $317 bucks for 2 PIRELLI ...

As I mentioned at the last meeting if you are in need of new tyres for your bike check the prices at Tyroola  https://www.tyroola.com.au/motorcycle-tyre/sa/

I used to go to Mad Mick's but with these prices I cannot resist.

I am getting these Pirelli tyres


perfect for crusers because of the deep tread in the middle of the tyre, works out to $310 for the set for my bi...

Texas overnighter

I just wants to say thank you for looking after me when I had some tire problems far away from home.

I'm in trouble now. Anni think I have been naughty. She reckon I rode like a maniac and the flat tire was one of my punnishments.

To my defence, I was just trying to keep up with the ride leader.

Anyway, we made it home with a few stops to pump up the back tire.

Thank you Sue and Peter for taking Anni and our stuff all the way home to us. Oh - and Anni don't wanna ride ...

Sorry for the inconvenience, but we do have to remember that the Country Club is a business and we don't pay...
