Not sure on Bombers, always been a Rockshox fanboy  ;D Bombers seem to be easier to find though.

An alternate shock could be Marzocchi Bombers?

Pancreatic cancer for sure with such a short illness.
Diagnosed in July, dead by October.

Big shame that, good guy, really cared about Australia.

Once upon a time I would have agreed with you JC,  but following the passing of my brother back in March I reserve the right to disagree.
He had 16 days diagnoses to death, reported to doc suspecting lung infection and sore throat, a few tests and dignosed with cancer of esophagus which spread to lung. Maybe there was a bit of man mentality in ignoring the symptoms by him but he was still well enough to still be working as a plumber until it struck him down.

Hi,
    We were up at Dago Point (L. Sorell) a few weeks ago, not many campers around yet.
Should be good.
Cheers

Not content to finish school before eyeing a policing career, the boy embarked on what investigators allege is a serious chain of events that began with falsely reporting a burglary and ended with him speeding around the city's busiest roads in the emergency truck, complete with red and blue flashing lights.

Between those points, the boy allegedly defrauded an insurance company of more than $100,000, duped a hire car firm, used the online identities of his father and other adults to falsify documents, and even created a corporate accountant who existed in name only. All before his 17th birthday.

"This type of behaviour is breathtaking in its inception, execution ... I don't think we have ever seen anything like this before," a magistrate said in a Victorian children's court on Wednesday after a police prosecutor detailed the case.

The teenager, who is now 17 and working at McDonald's, was sitting in court with his mother. He cannot be identified.

He is alleged to have last year falsely reported a burglary at his mother's home, and used a $39,000 insurance payout to buy camera gear, a drone and partly fund a white Isuzu truck that he later had converted into the emergency services vehicle.

His lawyer on Wednesday said the teenager actually stopped the vehicle at traffic accidents and had dreamed of being a police first responder.

"[This] wasn't the right way to go about it," the lawyer said.

The teenager last year had a legitimate website design business, but allegedly claimed it was a multinational corporation. He was the chief executive, but in reality the sole employee. He also hired an office in Queens Road.

Police allege that last year he used his father's identity online to open an account with a hire car company, and regularly drove cars despite being unlicensed. When his father learned of the account and had it closed, his son allegedly took on another man's online identity and opened another hire car account.

On another occasion the boy allegedly liaised with a trucking business under the name Alex Elliott, who was purported to be the accountant for the website design company, but who police say doesn't exist.

Allegedly fraudulent documents allowed the boy to buy the truck and then have it fitted with red and blue flashing lights, and police accuse him of funding his plans through two other insurance payouts, related to false reports of burglaries at the office. Police allege he told investigators he was in Canberra during one of the break-ins, and showed them false bank statements to support his alibi.

In August last year, soon after getting his learner's driving permit, he got the truck and between September 20 and October 15 last year, he is accused of driving the truck on Hoddle Street, Punt Road, St Kilda Road and Flinders Street, among others.

On AFL grand final day last year police say he sped at 121km/h in the Burnley Tunnel. On another occasion he allegedly ran a stop light 29 seconds after it had turned red.

The boy's 120 charges include reckless conduct endangering serious injury, attempting to obtain a financial advantage, making a false report, dealing with the proceeds of crime, theft, unlicensed driving and other traffic offences. He is yet to enter a plea.

.....

The teenager exploited loopholes, breached people's trust for his own gain and endangered lives on the road, the magistrate said, although he acknowledged the boy was now seeing a psychologist and youth justice worker, was working and had good prospects.

"He is going to do well at whatever he does. He is a highly productive young man, I have no doubt he will be a success ... we don't want it to be criminal," the magistrate said.

The boy's case will be finalised next month.
