UPDATE IN DOWNSIZING BLUES


Just a quick note on my progress in selling stuff. It took me 14 days to raise the money for the basic computer I want to buy to run my SCSI scanners. I am amazed at how much interest there is in old motorcycle stuff.

Going through the material to post on eBay has been more than a fair dose of nostalgia … it’s my youth in paper form. The whole process has kindled so many memories of  wide open spaces where 220 + kph on a bike was possible, and quasi-legal. New South Wales once had a peculiar speed zone where you were allowed to go as fast as you could, but had to be able to prove you weren’t riding, or driving, dangerously if anything happened. A real Catch-22, but great fun until the wrapped-in-cotton-wool anti-fun brigade moved in.
