Note to self: Find something really big and photograph it for this thread. I was thinking about a pic of my boss's ego, but lens not wide enough, will keep my eyes peeled for something else. Love you pics and BIG things posted so far!

I'd include your "BIG Panniers" ! Those are some whoopers!
What brand are they ... how they working out? Price?


The USA is full of "BIG" stuff. Mostly tourist stuff like Paul Bunyan, Big Doughnut, Big TeePee and on and on and on. Out Southwest, West us full of BIG. Seems Oz has their fair share.

Love the Postie bike ... what's the plan after Oz tour?

Safe going, all the best!

They are dinky di original panniers from a real postman. They're bloody terrific, hold heaps, really strong plastic canvas material and slot on and off really easily with metal brackets. Like the bike, I'm testing the theory that they are indestructible. You can't buy them - but you can get them off AusPost (if u know the right postie) because the CT110 model is being replaced by the ND110 and the panniers are not interchangeable - so they are ditching all the old ones.

You need a photo in front of a Big Thing as evidence

I'm considering shipping Mo to Turkey next year for the Centenary of the Anzac at Gallipoli. If so, I'll then take him up north to the Arctic Circle... maybe... we'll see...

Safe going, all the best!
Cheers - thanks
