Here is a photo of the flag signed by Petermc, my partner Sylvia and myself. Technically Sylvia isn't a member of r65.org but she joins in vicariously and her r65 has featured in a number of photos I've posted.

How about a pic of you and your better half with the flag, Tony?

Sorry I've got the flag downstairs in my office and am too lazy to go get it.

Here however are some photos:
1/. Sylvia and R65 in approximately 1984 at Bamaga, a small town at the tip of Cape York

2/. Sylvia on her now red R65/80 enroute to the Lions Den Hotel last year

3/. Me with my R65 last year at the Lions Den - I'm scowling cause I hate photocalls and it was about to rain -little did I realize ti would rain 25" overnight and it would take me several hours to get the BMWs that were park outside overnight running again.
4/. Sylvia with her new G650GS last year.
5/. G650 & KLE500

I would suggest PMing address to Tony.  Although I have "harvesters" blocked it never is a good idea to post an address in the open...

Tony, Justin asked for my address a few weeks ago to send it to you with the R65.org flag, so you should have it.

If the last AU member that signs it, sends to me, I'll send it on to the UK, to  reduce the postage costs for AU  members .

I do have it!
I'm waiting a couple of more days for someone else in Australia to ask for it to be sent to them, if not response I'll send it to you.

Tony, after all AU members that are interested in putting their name on the flag, whom ever sends it to me, use the most cost efficient method . ( Message in a bottle !!)

After this flag goes to the UK, then back to the US, it's travelling days are just about over, there doesn't appear to be much interest in this, by most members here on R65.org .

If it takes 4 weeks or longer to get to me, I have no problem with it, there is no sense of urgency about this .

If you choose the message in a bottle method, let me know, I have quite a few friends on the west coast of California, I'll ask them to keep an eye out for it !! Grin

Tony,

PM sent.  If you just stick it in an empty stubbie bottle and throw it off the beach, I'll wait a couple of days and it should float by.   Wink

Dave.

So, any R65 riders in New South Wales interested in getting together and signing this flag? Good excuse to meet up and talk bikes Smiley

Sydney signing and coffee ride?

This flag is doing well considering 2 months ago it was labelled invisible by Aida, Steve and me!! Well done all you R65er's! Wish we could have found Trolle. Sad

Burt has PM'd me and confirmed receipt of the flag. By now it is probably on its way to Sydney, perhaps Burt or Michael can confirm.
