    So, I arrive in Tassie this morning with a few mates for our annual Tassie Tour. I'm on the Beemer this year. Rode about 500km today and the front wheel bearings shit themselves right out front of the Suzuki joint in Scottsdale.  It's almost 5pm and I'm thinking I'm screwed. I go in and speak to the mechanic Clint. He springs into action and quickly diagnosis the problem. Then off with the wheel and to my immemse surprise they have bearings in stock that will fit. Fast efficient and friendly service. Clint owns a Harley so I was very pleased to give him a 10th anniversary stubby holder in addition to paying for his great service. If your in Scottsdale it's worth a visit to say G'day to the crew at Scottsdale Suzuki. Thanks fellas.

    That's a great outcome Rod.  Nothing like mechanical problems at the start of a ride to ruin things.  To get it sorted that quickly and that time of the day was a great stroke of luck.

    Good old Northeast Tassie hospitality. It's like steppin back in time 30 years. I love the area.

    And don't forget the one finger salute, no not that one!  Where they still raise the single pointy finger from the steering wheel to everyone who looks local on the road. You know the type, old blokes, wearing the Akubra, driving a ute.

     LOL. You're spot on. Seen plenty of Akubra wearing locals give that greating in my travels around here. It's like how "the good old days" were on the mainland.

    It happens in some states when a person finds out late in life that their father wasn't their uncle. They wave to every new male hoping it's dad..

    I live in eternal hope. Still.. anyone that'd wave back at at a mug like me, couldn't possibly be related.. It's a catch 22 situation.
