Maybe he is going into the rickshaw business. The forward seat for 2 or 3 looks comfortable.

There's a story behind Black Beer.

They used to make a rather tasty Dopplebock they called "Winter Ale". They were taken to task over it because it was a lager not an ale. About that time the main beer awards in NZ changed their criteria adding in a stipulation that a beer name reflect what is actually is. The main target was probably Tui which is a popular NZ lager billed as East India Pale ale for unknown reasons.
They changed the Dopplebock recipe soon after and Black Beer was born. It is tasty.

I couldn't pass on these two wood frame folding canvas patio chairs today (marked "free" on the roadside). I had just enough straps.

Ironically I'd just disposed of our old ones, thinking I'd never find replacement canvases.

The 1-mile trip home was ok, just didn't lean too far on left turns.


The load

I saw that first picture and I thought you'd found a new alternative to crash bars to protect the body sides.

Well done on the find and for having the foresight to carry around luggage straps with you.

As we head towards Spring, a young man's mind tends to think about sowing his wild oats, cucumbers and tomatoes. But before that happens the garden soil should be enriched with organic matter, that means a visit to the local stables.
There are about 10 stables adjacent to the Morphettville racecourse, when they are cleaned each day the poo-poo is bagged and left on the footpath/sidewalk for the public to collect. My scoot will only fit one bag so I'll be back.

The bag opening is literlly right by your face!! Do you have an oxygen tank under the seat?

I think that takes the crown.🏆

On a Suzuki FA50... complete straight 6 Ford head... i put it on the seat & sat on it.

Also on FA50... 20kg bag of something

Both were for about 15km on open road!

A large panel heater (across feet/knees), actually rather difficult!

Many bags of groceries (2 or 3 each handlebar, whole floor full , rear rack & tied together under seat!)

Anything that needs to be carried.


Essentials only!

1969, in medic training, San Antonio TX....on PFC wages.. wife and I had a Honda CB 350. Wife carried the groceries on her lap. But I had to leave her home to strap the 6' live-cut Xmas tree across the back.
(loved that bike...but sold it when my orders for 'Nam finally arrived. Wife went home to her parents on the Santa Fe Chief ~!)

The hardest to handle, for me, were a few loose golf clubs for a scooter scavenger hunt, and a rake and battery powered blower with battery powered weed whacker. If I'd only thought to tie them all together...
