I decided to do a quick photoshoot of the 180 Saturday night prior to it being off the road for what could end up as 2 years. With the help of a few mates (i’m still useless with the camera) we went down to the Townsville Entertainment Centre for a few happy snaps. Heres the … Continue reading

Courier Organised…?
