Its so sad losing such close and dear companions. As said in OG725's thread, I think they are still with us despite passing, well I have kind of always felt this way. My Mom rescues mainly homeless and abused animals from Europe and UK and we have had ... more »

Very sad to hear of your loss- can tell by the pics how much you must have loved that Dog. My Mom rescues abused dogs- has rescued like hundreds and cost her all the money she has. Have seen some sad and happy cases with it all. Will show my Mom your ... more »

Amazing bike- was it the actual bike he won the title on? Was close that year- Andre, Noyce and Carla on the Yam. Only a few points between them.

Stunning bike- like all your bikes! I really love the clean hubs- well all of it really. Interesting also Darryn Dunham riding it- what a bike and lovely work.


Added reply in a thread 83 husky 125 resto question 6/8/2021 4:26 PM

I do remember the 83 125 MX version, dated by the Japanese bikes and was meant to be abit lacking in both performance and tech spec. Not many of them sold over here, I seem to recall. Still a cool bike though and probably very rare and collectable nowdays ... more »

Hahah- I reckon you maybe cracked it !! Thought there maybe more to it than what have seemed more obvious. I did wonder about the face guard, does look remarkably similar to Rocket Rex's and also saw a pic of Rocket Rex on number 39, exactly as you saying!

From the clues (too many!

) and the Des Nations victories- Broc Glover. Although, he did not only ride for one Factory Team, in 1989 he shortly rode for KTM in the GP's - right at the end of his career I think. Think he actually won the last ... more »

He did good really- qualifying really super. Also to finish in front of Anstie in the 2nd race was good. Give the guy some credit! Must be hard travelling internationally and setting up for a situation like this. Credit to the man! Hope he is in for

Your Sis sounds just like mine! She made things very hard for the whole family and also stole my Fathers inheritance that was meant for her kid- like £90,000! When you have family members like this, yes things not easy- such a pity, my empathy for sure. ... more »

Added reply in a thread Is anstie a sleeper? 5/9/2021 6:26 PM

Totally agree- he can do top 5's (outdoors) and it wouldn't surprise me at all if actually better even. Slightly off topic but also worth a mention, I remember his old man racing (his Dad)- Merv (the Swerve) as he was affectionately known (not always ... more »

Yes- was true- Jason did a parade lap on that bike at the Farleigh 500 GP- think was 1979- think it may have actually been water cooled and tricked out, before water cooling started to happen stock. Cannot quite remember but it certainly was trick. Also ... more »

Always amazes me how strong some people are when their backs are against the wall, not sure I would be so strong and resilient. My Aunt recently collapsed whilst out walking her dog, only 59 years old- turns out was aggressive ... more »
