This kind of damage I expect on a trans-world expedition. Maybe from an off in the woods, or falling debris from an unsecured load. Or maybe the swinging club of a wronged tribesman, or falling tree.

But a lamppost in the inner city of Melbourne? That’s hard to swallow! I fully expect the bike will collect a few war wounds along the way, but I didn’t want to start off with any.

Hey ho. I’ll have to start looking online for a new tank. Maybe one of those long range 10 gallon jobs? Watch this space…..

About Sophie Whiptank - aka Bart

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
