Title: Kenny Blake Memorial
Post by: Gundog on July 14, 2019, 05:14:36 am
Visited a memorial for Kenny Blake recently, located in Strathalbyn in the Adelaide Hills where he grew up.

Kenny was a famous South Australian race rider killed at Isle on Mann TT in 1981 on his last race before retirement. Thought I would share with the forum:

I can't say I've heard of Ken Blake but that is a very nice and fitting memorial to someone who, I assume,  died doing what he loved.  Thanks for sharing the pictures.

An awsome piece of sculpture, though it looks harder to clean than a K radiator. Does it rain much there? There doesn't seem to be much rust on it.
