I had a beautiful Border Collie named Max. Max was a rescue dog with pedigree papers. Instead of having two black yes he had one of each. This is in 1998. We hit it off straight away. I was amazed at how quick he imprinted on me. He was around 18 months old when I got him. I’d like to share a couple or few stories if that’s ok. I had a Mitsubishi Pagero ( don’t know if you had them in the States. It was a 4 wheel drive ). When ever I took Max in the truck, he didn’t like being restrained so he always sat in the front passenger seat. Whenever I got out of the truck, Max would move over to the drivers seat. He would place both paws on the steering wheel. One day I’m heading through outer Brisbane on the freeway when out of nowhere traffic cop pulls me over for speeding. I get out of the truck and stat pulling the license out of my wallet. Anyway I get the ticket and the cop was heading towards his bike. For some reason when I saw Max in the seat and I said in a slightly raised voice “ Oh well Max it looks like your driving home” I’m heading for the passenger door and start getting in. I notice the cop started turning around ( out of curiosity). He makes eye contact with Max, then he looks over to me. I’m watching him as I get into the truck. I can imagine his brain going WTF FFS etc. then it dawned on him and the look on his face was priceless. I was going to type another story, but I’m in a scheit load of pain. Jump ahead to Oct 2003. I’m heading off to Austria so I arrange for some friends to look after Max while I’m away. I get back at 11pm, put the key in the door turn on the light and find a big empty. So that wasn’t bad enough when I went to get Max the next day. I get told that Max had run away. That was bullshit as Max likes to lounge on the furniture. I ask if they did a search or call the police. They said they hadn’t. The temperature was rising, was that the weather or me getting angry. I was away for 6 weeks and was told he’d gone in the second week. Funnily enough they also didn’t have Max’s bed our his bowls.
What can you do, nothing your guts are churning. I cared less about being robbed compared to how I felt for both me and Max. All I ever hoped was that he had or has a good life 😞😞😞😞❤
Bob that is awesome and terrible and I know how deeply that must have cut and I know it does not heal. I'm sorry for your loss. Would have been great to have seen the motor officer's face back then with Max at the wheel, it had to be magnificent! Thank you for this Bob, its good medicine.
I've posted on here looking for a fuel tank. These tanks in horrible condition sell for $300+ USD, so when someone offered to send me a brand new tank, to my door for $200 USD, I was naturally suspicious. I looked to see when the person had signed up and how many posts they had, and they had...

I’m now officially Baldy again instead of Baldy Oz ...thanks Admin and Arizona Warrior for sorting it out.

Jumped on the forum today and noticed that today is my 10 year anniversary of joining up. Boy does time fly seen a lot of good members disappear and many new members join. Glad to say i'm still here a part of it all.
I recently bought a parts lot and just want to verify a few items in the box. I believe this is a Yamaha f.e.k and the [email protected] brake reservoir bracket. They will probably be up for sale in the future but this is not a sales ad.
