    Not sure why but down in Aus there's been a surge of interest in the old garage door opener video

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1C-Bxifv2Pk

    No idea why? it's been trickling along earning me a few bob every now and then and the yesterday almost everyone down under must have visited it and not only that but clicked through on the ads.

    So thanks folks!

    I've seen it on other forums as well. Seems a good idea is difficult to eradicate. Congratulations, you've gone viral or venereal or something.

    Phew! Almost a million views to date
    Formerly on a Lahar Grey F800S, then after 47,000 happy miles it was traded in for a new Midnight Black F800ST, which was more or less converted back to an S. And now I'm on a brand new R1200RS, which is rather awesome! I'll still stick around if you'll have me, though, as my wife is now on the F800...

    It takes that long for the Aussies to catch-up with the rest of the world.

    We Aussies are very generous, and believe in sharing our wealth with those less fortunate.

    Ok it's fast approaching the 1 million mark andI've just had an email from a TV company wanting to use it in a show.
    They want to discuss a rate.
    So the big question!

    How many rear wheel bearing assemblies should I hold out for?

    And I guess I'll have to ask for some touch up paint (in brown) for a former F800 rider....

    Oi, what about the South London Mofos such as myself I think Pat could develop the ABS as well with his fund.

    Seriously though, well done Pat. Just goes to show how far a bit of a laugh can get you.

    Never realized Australia and Canada had that much in common. You guys in the frozen North also sharing your wealth with those less fortunate.

    Thanks, Sean, I resemble that remark.

    It's just using a child as slave labour, just like in the industrial era of England.

    Pat, next time get her to bring out a bucket of water with her, to water the plants at the same time, 2 jobs for the cost of one.

    No chance! Shes 17 now and even getting ups too mch to expect.

    But I have an improved version now. My better half can hear my bike coming a way off (thanks to the blue flame can) so normally of a night she's out opening the door before I even arrive.
    I'm wondering if suggesting she gives the bike a quick wash before I roll it is too much to ask......

    Two people have sent me a link to the video in the last two weeks - one from someone who isn't even interested in bikes.

    The YouTube video was posted on the Ducati Owners Club of South Australia Facebook page last week. Destined to become legendary (if it already hasn't).

    There are some fine video's of Pat's hands working on stuff too. A living legend!
