Still riding.

Dad has just won the oldest bike and rider at the Redback rally in Charlton. Born in 1929 and still camping out and riding long distances to events. This is number 12 win for that event.
Dad pictured with Tom who rode over from Western Australia for the weekend.

Pretty impressive.

Good on him.  The bike certainly looks in top condition.

History alive !
The Nortons I remember from back when, had a numberplate that could be read from both sides on the front mudguard, always made me think of a large cleaver.

My 4 cyl kawasaki came with two number plates. Now they use one it has left an ugly wiring block that used to be hidden by the front plate.
Mum has her own bike a Russian 650 Ural, the plan was to put a sidecar on it for her but never happened. She had a fall during the week and i got her an electric wheel chair. I turned up the power so she could get up the ramp for a birthday party at the RSL. She nearly took out the end wall.
