Yeah! Definitely not attempting another Kirks Bridge thank you very much. :roll:

No, the red one piece leathers were borrowed and whereabouts now unknown. (And they probably would have shrunk by now, as most clothing seems to do as we "grow" older :lol: ).

But I still have the green/yellow footy jumper (was wearing over the red leathers under my black "Brando" leather jacket) and the helmet.
But I think the helmet's Australian Standard compliance is well past the "Use By" date (if it even had some form of compliance back then?) and the internal foam had changed to a "powder" over the years.

Dale, the girl with Nic is the one who appears as part of the "bigger" bikie gang?

Yes. (Looks like she rode into town 2nd last).

Yeah. I noticed her more right of camera in the donut scene. (Seen good in widescreen aspect ratio, as in my little profile pic down below).

The night in between the two days filming was something to remember. Along with Toecutter, we enjoyed beer and baked potatoes in foil cooked on the open fire in the backyard of the pub we stayed in.

Thanks Dave. Lucky to have them.

Mate! Harleys are Harleys! and no other bike is! (I realize that you are very aware of that fact).

Enjoying Jessie heaps. (Nic Gazzana told me bikes are female, so I reckon Jessie is a good name for her).

Cheers,
Dale

Hi,

Thanks mack tanker, bike, ShadowRage and Bubba Fat for your previous comments. Always appreciated.

Don't know if this has been spotted / posted before? but ...

At the October 2008 Little River event a Japanese guy kindly presented me with a mixed/made in Japan audio CD titled "the ROAD WARRIORS".
While recently checking out the CD cover for my buddy "Bronze Brad" (aka Gasoline), I came across a link to a Japanese website.

On that site are some Mad Max / Mad Max 2 related T Shirts for sale, but this one got my attention:

The next day I saw the Google Chrome "Translate" option which translates to English in the classic Japanese / Asian way that ya gotta love!
(You know how it is!? ... Instruction manuals, subtitles, T shirts, etc.)

English version (CLASSIC!?):
