It is with massive pride, a lot of awe and a heavy heart that I make this post here in the Australian Hayabusa Club Community. 

As you all know by now Founder of the AHC, Volvi Goldberger, sadly told us of Rod Norris's demise recently. We all thank him for not the news he bore but that he brought it to us and hope he never has to be the bearer of such news again.

While Volvi handed the torch of Leadership to Rod he, the Rod I knew, venemently refuted his role as the Leader, Boss or person in charge. The combination of refusing to take any acknowledgement while happily ensuring the continuation of the Club online with no complaint was a trait I truely admired. As he elevated me into a role of looking at raising funds we had a few "direct" talks about what he expected and accepted as ways of paying for our costs. These just made me realise how I felt for the Club and what it represents even more.

As part of the Admin Team we have a chat group to discuss anything that might effect the Club and in July the last thing Rod said to us was for myself, Tony, to be the "go to" person for the Club while he was away. We delayed dealing with this out of respect and reservation for Rod's death. It wasn't until Jay Busa raised the question the other day that galvanised us into resolving this role in the direction we want to take.

As of tonight if the Australia Hayabusa Club is to have a single person as it's Leader then that person is myself. This has been generally agreed, for several reasons, by our current active Facebook & Forum Admin Team Jeff, Mark & Kathy.

While the running of the Club is determined to remain the same some of you may see that Rod Norris is no longer on the Admin Team. This step was only made so that Rod's account could no longer be used to effect any Group adminstration function in case the account is used incorrectly. Rod's account will always be part of the Australian Hayabusa Club in perpetuity.

I look forward to sharing our passion for the Hayabusa together well into the future and the enjoyment of catching up with all Members old and new.

as always

keep it shiny side up

  The Passing of Rod Norris RIP (Club, Board Owner)
Posted by: Volvi - 01-09-2018, 12:07pm - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (6)

It is with great sadness that I inform you of the untimely death of Rod Norris (Club Owner). I have just got off the phone with Janelle his wife who sought me out to inform me of his passing and wished me to inform this club so members can be made aware of the fact.

He had passed sometime in the second half of July by his own hand. His health was deteriorating.

He is survived by his wife Janelle and his beloved little daughter Kelsea.

He was cremated sometime last month as per his wishes and his ashes scattered to the winds on a beach attended by all his family.

Rod will be remembered by us as a dedicated Hayabusa fan who loved his busa's and dedicated himself to the running of this club since I passed it onto him back in 2012.

RIP Rod - fly with the wind on your trusted busa.

hi all, 

as a slack forum user (I succumb to the dreaded FB a long time ago..) I keep forgetting to update whats going on so here goes....

I have been working on a 20 year commemorative ring for the past 9+ months and can finally show a teaser of what will be offered. Prices are also being sorted out but expect these rings to be over the $1400 price tag. 

There is also a listed started to request a specific ring number (each ring will have it's own unique number from 01 - 99). No guarentee you will get your requested number but you can choice a first & second option. 

For those not on FB there will be both a forum post with indepth information & a page incorporated into our web design which will both have ordering & payment methods....

You can view the recent ring images here

After all this time i am going to logout for the last time, unfortunately book fake has killed this forum, such a shame. I am registered on book fake with the adelaide hayabusa club, but don't post cause i hate book fake. There were so many characters who posted regularly here. All gone now. Hopefully the forum still stays active . I dont ride much now, got a young fella to raise , so need to stay safe .

  Jindabine Memories.
Posted by: Rev - 09-05-2018, 08:34pm - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (6)

Hey guys & gals,  how's it all going at Bullshit Castle (Busa HQ) ? LOL.

You girls still talking, not riding ? LOL.

FWIW I recently did a 4 day  run on the K 1300 R  with some retired blokes like me up to Canberra via Bairnsdale & Omeo Highway, which took us through Khancoban, Jindy & Cooma.
Boy, did the flash backs  come flooding back to me  riding down memory lane through Jindabine.!! Perfect weather, no rain at all & I was following 4 bikes,  a new Harley something or other, (barge)   an  Indian, a Yamaha shaftie & a BMW GS 1200.
The roads are still in good nick, did the loop going home through Adaminaby, down the chute to Khancoban, then  Walwa & on to Mansfield eventually just on last light. Saw no coppers in 1800 KLMS all up. (Might have been hiding though) Told my buddies to back the hell off from Mansfield to Yea due to past Busa "experience" there ( not mine though). Might have been De Meester from memory ?
Stayed overnight at Khancoban Motel ($75) Canberra IBIS ($99) Mansfield Pub ($60). All very comfortable accomodation IMHO.

I'm still tinkering with the old Trumpies & riding with a classic bike club, & Ulysses on Wednesdays.  The old 75 Trident is flying along after I did the engine up & I just got back from the All British Rally at Newstead where we camped for the weekend & saw & heard some fantastic old bikes. I took my 1966 Hayabusa (Triumph Bonneville) Yep, it was the Busa of the era back then.

Haven't seen GDYUP at all but we exchange emails from time to time. He's big time into classic cars right  now but knowing Phil that could change at any minute.

Hope you are all still enjoying your 2 wheeled activities as I still am & keep yourselves upright.

cheers for now
