Hi Bill,
don't be disappointed, the Vegemite was on the dessert table and I am saving the shrimp for when you come here.

Nice looking FJR, right colour too!
Where did you go? I see a lot of US Iron there, so straight roads only?

Hi Al,
a lot of the blokes do like the American bikes, I love their noise too but prefer the FJR's versatility. We do have some nice twisties close to home and this is a bonus. On the day of the ride we went to the Royal Australian Air Force (R.A.A.F.) Museum a short ride from my home.

Best regards

Hi Bwana,
This is the only photo I could find of the dessert table. We had already eaten 7 jars of Vegemite and as you can see most of the other desserts had been consumed, this was all that was left when the photo was taken. Fortunately there was enough of the main course was left to fend off any hunger bugs.

Best regards
Surly

  • The fact that you would serve your guests Johnny Walker Blue Label shows that you are a truly distinguished gentleman.
  • The fact that you had Baileys Irish Cream available for the service with the coffee further supports your gentleman's status.
  • The fact that you would serve Jagermeifter shows that you are slighty bent however.
  • The fact that you Aussies consume Vegemite demonstrates that you Aussies are a bunch of sick bastards.

Hi Don,

Hope you get here before those 23 year olds turn into 43 year olds.

Hi MEM,
in short Vegemite is a condiment that is usually spread on toast. It has a flavor that most Aussies love. We also love sharing it with our (unsuspecting) American friends who prefer to use it as axle grease, gasket cement and rat poison.

Best regards

MEM
It's a colonial 'knock-off' of Marmite. During my time in WA I was forced to endure Vegemite as part of retaining my Landed Immigrant status - escaped to Canada before becoming hooked :D

I'm sure you can find it in NB? If not, I'll bring some to NAFO.
