  2. It’s a little thing called the Australian Constitution which specifies the powers and authority between the state and federal govt. The responsibility for health (and therefore pandemics) is a state responsibility

  14. Yes Matt. The “kick start only ride” is in concept stage still. Need to get rec reg and a few other bits sorted for the bike. Also I would want to take it for a day out first to confirm all those bolts I thought had been tightened.....were actually tightened [emoji846]
