Old Bob with GV250
« on: June 07, 2018, 08:36:59 AM »

Hi all,

Just a picture of me. I live on an Island off the Australian land mass. The Island is called Tasmania and yes this is the home of the Tasmanian Devil. I was riding with a couple of friends and called into a service station shop to have some lunch. It was a good day and as our winter has officially started we here,  take every chance that we get to go out on a ride. The day looks ok but the temperature was down to 14.5 degrees Centigrade which is pretty cold, not sure of Fahrenheit but well down. My island land mass is about 170 miles across the top and 200 miles from top to bottom so most rides see us home again after a days riding. We can go from the beach to our highest mountains in about 1 and a 1/2 hours. It is a nice place to live. You can look it up on Google and I live in the town of Penguin which is famous for our giant penguin that stands on the sea front.

Well I will go now and I hope that you like the picture of me,  and my trusty GV250EI motorcycle.

Old Bob

The place you live sounds lovely. I live in Arizona so it's about 110 degrees now usually mid day. Makes for poo riding experience but our winters are pleasant because of it. Looks like a nice bike. Hope this community serves you well.

G'day Bob,

Love your description of Tassie!

Pretty sure that most here would like to see a map of Tassie! ;)

I've taken the liberty of adding your link into my post.

I'm intrigued by the sign above your head "If you steal our petrol...".

Chrome engine casings *drool*. I only wish I could of got my hands on a 250 lump for the project.

Have to say though Bob , I am not a big fan of open face helmets .
Still it's better than thongs , boardies and singlet which I see all the time around here in the summer on some pretty fast bikes  :o
Although they do wear full face but that seems a waste of time considering the rest of their gear .

Hi Christianleon266
Thanks for the info about posting pictures. I used imgbb to post on the Royal Enfield site and had to post using HTML. I will try posting on this site by using BBcode and hope that I will get a better result.

Ok and further on in the day I have successfully uploaded a picture and it is in my opening forum post. I had to down size my original photo to 1024X1024 and using
imgbb  and BBCode full linked option I was able to upload my picture thanks to the help given to me by Christianleon266.

Hi Joss,

I am intrigued by the sign as well "If you steal our petrol................. What,, I will have to see what will happen to some one stealing petrol the next time I am at the Forth shop. I have never even noticed the sign before.

Hi all hopefully some pictures of Penguin on the island of Tasmania.

This is our Big Penguin

This is the famous Tasmanian Devil

Our Uniting Church at over 100 years old.

Every thing in Penguin is about Penguins even the rubbish bins.

Penguin's at full size coming out of there burrows.

This is a map of Tasmania showing how close all the towns are. Our whole population is only 450,000 people. Penguin is at the top of the map.
The island is about 170 miles across at the top and about 200 miles from top to bottom. It is very mountainous in the middle but we also have
lots of beaches and the farms for there size are the most productive in all of Australia owing to the red volcanic soils. In the summer it is  great
to ride motorcycles as you can be home at the end of the day from riding any where on the island. The roads are all good, well maintained and
with twisties every where.


Another picture of the Tassie Devil. They may be small but they have a very grumpy disposition.
