Laverda Concours hits ABC Radio

 :o Steve Austin announced the Concours on ABC Radio Brisbane.

The Mrs rolled her eyes when she heard it ....... now she knows I’ll be playing Laverda this weekend.  :D

Doubt that it's the same bloke ............ he rides a Triumph, the 6 million dollar man could have outrun a Triumph. ;)

Hoping that you all have a great Concours this year.

Did The Highwayman make the trip up from Sydney?  If I could have made it I would have loved to do the trip up with him..
