For Chris, the talented builder of this 1971 Triumph Tiger bobber, romance comes in many forms. And, like most of us who have known romance, Chris is not one who would part with his romances lightly.
After hanging up his racing helmet and giving the dirt racers away, Chris realised he needed to keep bikes in his life.
And so, began his life as a road rider and the build of his beautiful Tiger hardtail that would also later bring him solace.
UPDATE (29th Oct, 2013)
This is truly wonderful, happy news!
Karen, who featured with childhood sweetheart Chris in EP7: Romance, recently got given a report of good health.
It's a solid sign that the cancer is in remission.
We couldn't help but do a little dance on the spot when we heard! Please join us in wishing them the very best of everything and thanking them for sharing their amazing story.
Chris & Karen visited The Gawler Foundation during her recovery and found it immensely valueable in beating Karen's breast cancer. Still not 100% out of the woods yet, but positive progress.
Update (Feb, 2014)
While Karen, had been given a green light from the doctor last year, it was from X-rays only. Further tests had to be conducted and it's been revealed that the cancer has returned.
Chris and Karen are still fighting this with some new therapies, and some old ones (chemo).
Keep them in your thoughts.
UPDATE (12th Dec, 2014)
Unfortunately, Karen has passed away, surrounded by her husband Chris and her sons, Tom and Josh. She went peacefully in her sleep. Read about my farewell to this amazing woman here.
