Joe's Garage

  1. For those that have visited Tasmania's motorcycling roads and Hobart's
    home of motorcycling, I have some bad news.

    Vale Matt. Have known him for 20 years. A great personality who came
    into bikes late in life after years of playing with stupidly
    overpowered cars. A true character who will be missed big time.

    What a shame. I only briefly encountered him a couple of times but he
    made all newcomers in his bar feel like a regular. Apparently he had
    started remodelling his SP2 in #58 Gresini colours.

  3. Yesterday I spent the night with a good mate I hadn't caught up with
    for two years. Kerry and I are godparents to his two daughters, one
    aged 10, the other 15. But my movements around the country have kept
    us separated for a while. Anyway, when Isabella (the 15 year old) was
    born, Phil figured he was not going to be able to cope with his wife
    having a Cesarean birth as he faints at the sight of blood. So Kerry
    went to the pre-natal classes with Donna and was in the hospital by
    her side when Bella was born. In true Aussie style Phil and I got Matt
    Hamilton to open up Joe's Garage at 7am (it was in a different
    location back then) and he cooked us breakfast and served us free beer
    til I got a call from Kerry to tell Phil he has a beautiful baby
    daughter and to get his arse over to the hospital (only one block
    away). Was a fairly surreal day.

    On a side note, Donna has just dropped me back into Launceston and I
    made a comment to her "has Phil bought a shotgun and rocking chair
    yet?". Bella has grown into a stunningly beautiful young woman. She's
    gunna have to fend the blokes off with a machete.

  6. Yeah, well Donna's comment was "Oh she doesn't seem to be interested
    in boys, just pony club".
    I was thinking "That isn't going to stay that balance for much
    longer".
