Hello everyone,
Yes what a great Trial it was Greg. It was good to see so many twin shock bikes. David it was good to see you made the trip down and show all your Peter Paice replica TY250.
Some really nice photos there too David. I must also say a big thank you to the organisers and all the people behind the scenes, as I know there has been a lot of work put into this club of late. Well done.

Moving on to the Twin Shock Masters for this year at Conondale. As we all know this year "theme" is the :suzuki RL250. Now I know Greg is doing up some special RL and as I don't have one, he is lending me an RL for the event, even though I haven't seen it, so I am not sure what I am in for. Now at the TY challenge on the weekend, Greg handed me an RL exhaust colar that he wanted me to replicate in alloy. It must be some special RL or are you trying to build the lightest RL in Australia Greg?
I am not sure what the weight difference is between a steel colar and an alloy one, but overall, negligable.

Anyway a photo of what is heading your way Greg. The alloy one is on the left.

David, you have me curious about your sling shot :?:

Took me a while to work out what you were on about there Greg. I think the size of the photos might depend which internet browser you or I are using. All I do is transfer my photos from the phone to the hard drive, then use "upload attachment" and select the photos one at a time, which is what I have always done. They sure are huge on my browser too. Maybe I'll have a fiddle with the settings on my browser

Whatever you're doing David - don't change it.
Yes they are big, but they have beautiful detail and clarity.
They are excellent pictures of an excellent day out in glorious surroundings, and shared with good people.
What more could anyone want?

OK, I could want money - skill and talent - power - fame ... lots of things, but they're still great pictures of a great day.

Great shot of Justin. Look at his eyes. Maybe coming over the log but already planning further ahead.

This is what makes up a standard fork spring for a KT250. The oil deflector at the left end is the top
