I will be there.
Still havent put any of the piles of junk back together into something that resembles a motorcycle so it will be the M20 again.
Popping up to Williams Creek to cross Lake Eyre in flood off the bucket list then home via Broken Hill as I have not been there either.
Originally planned to do an Iron Bum Challenge to there on the B40 but haven't finished it yet so that gets pushed back to next year in Qld.

Sorry, not this year for Lynn and I. I gather they are going to use it as a trial for the International. Some BSA friends from Canberra will be there.

I need to be at work so I can retire just after my birthday that same week and family want to celebrate both events that same weekend as the rally.

Thanks, Lynn is thinking of keeping working for awhile longer, so I expect her to keep me in the way I deserve. Maybe a year or two before we get to do a world trip again. It would be good to both have time to meander, meanwhile I have a few other plans lined up.

Retirement is for OLD FARTS
Even worse I am yet to find a retired person who has managed to get a single bike together.

Hi Trevor,

Somehow I doubt if it'll actually be retirement. Maybe a change of jobs - some paid, some not so paid.. Alternately, maybe I'll just become an old fart.

So far it looks like I'll be renewing my machine maintenance skills for getting older items working to go to developing countries. It would be good to actually get some funds to work on my bikes as well. I have some jewellery designs waiting to be worked on which should hopefully gain capital..

Good to have a revitalisation in life. I always fancied retiring and become a tramp.

Hopefully all of you will enjoy the rally and we'll see you again somewhere. Ride safe.

John

There's always something to do, retired or not, because if there is not, you just die. And yes I put the B50 together after I retired Oh and we have met main times. I am working on getting to the national rally. <216 <216

Retirement is a figment of a demented imagination. I'm busier now than when I was working. Although it may not be fair to say that since I retired early at the age of 62 due to a health problem 10 years ago (since disappeared from my life). But I have put a few bikes together:

Bonneville B50
BSA A65 Clubman
H*nda CB350 four
H*nda CL 175
BSA B44 Victor
BSA B50 Tracker

And I'm working on another B44 and a B40

Never give up!
