Photo Shoot with Ashleigh
It is with great pleasure and pain that we bring you this (our second) photo shoot.
I’m sure you can understand the pleasure part but why the pain? Because we had an equipment malfunction. And Crossy and myself decided to see if we could fix it.
Big mistake. We both shocked ourselves on the (switched off) battery power pack of a flash unit. I got zapped more intensely as I could smell “burnt human flesh” and also wound up with the imprint of that flash unit’s plug on my left index finger. You know the old moral when your Mom tells you “Nicky, don’t touch the fry pan, it’ll burn you”. And you must touch the fry pan. Well Crossy warned me and I had to touch it.
The very beautiful Ashleigh was the star of the show. Somewhere in here is a bike and I’m hoping someone will actually notice it. It’s Crossy’s own bike, which he has spent a lot of time and energy building.
As for Ashleigh, not only is she graced with good looks, but also intelligence and a wicked sense of humour. There were times, I felt, a lesser mortal would have lost patience, but not Ashleigh. She worked like a trooper through it all.
Please take the time to view the video and browse the photographs. And don’t forget to share the link with your friends.

On a Special Note, My wife and I both own Harley-Davidson Motorcycles, In October 2014 around 8.45pm our garage was flooded and both bikes were under water for around half an hour. The response from both QBE Motorcycle Insurance and Fraser Motorcycles was unbelievable. I called QBE the 10.30am the next morning and by 1pm they came and picked up both bikes. The bikes were taken to Fraser Motorcycles at Concord, one week later both bikes were fixed and returned to me by Fraser Motorcycles.
Now That’s Service….
