    Some time ago I purchased John Nagle's (saaz) Trophy from his estate.
    The first planned iBA ride on saaz's bike was a Centreline 24 (BBG). My ride started in Port Augusta, South Australia, and was to finish in Darwin, Northern Territory, 2723 kms in 24 hrs. The ride only lasted 15 minutes as a kangaroo decided to commit suicide and damaged the front end. Fortunately, I stayed upright. Long story short the bike was eventually repaired, parts coming from the UK, and returned to me in Canberra.

    Hi Lionel and :400: to the Club !

    It's good to hear from you and that John's Trophy is still being put to good use  :169:

    John was a regular and valued contributor to the Forum,
    and I'm sure he would be happy to see you following in his footsteps. :028:

    ( But avoiding any more Kangaroos ! )

    Cheers  :821:

     :400: to the forum.  The Trophy knows what they look like now and should be able to avoid them in the future.  You may not have been aware that the Trophy's accident avoidance system requires constant training. :745:
