I don't know if any of the Aussies would know the in depth history of Phillip Island, but my neighbor and friend of mine Frank Spiller passed away last year, I will get the exact date off his wife Daphne for the post.
He always loved to talk bikes and was always interested in my ktm's.

He use to tell me he raced at Phillip Island and said he won a fair few and was one of the first on his triumph 500? I didn't know whether he was pulling my leg and I never did any research on it until tonight when I was thinking of old Frank. Looks like he was telling the truth and I wish I could have had more conversations with him before he passed!!
I will attach some links to read through.
Your a legend Frank and thanks for all the good times mate.

Dw "Day walker"
The Daywalker is a Ginger that does not burn in direct sunlight. Hated by true Gingers, the Daywalker can sustain extended periods in sunlight and even has traces of a soul. Because they are still part Ginger, freckles may or may not be present. daywalker definition by Urban Dictionary.Nov 27, 2014

Contacting DW re Frank Spiller

Hello

I've joined this forum in order to contact a member known as DW regarding his post on a classicmotorcycling.com.au forum, 9 Nov 2017, where he mentions his neighbour Frank Spiller passing away.

I am the biological grand daughter of Frank and Daphne Spiller, the biological daughter of their estranged son Barry Holden Spiller.

I am hopeful of establishing contact with Daphne.

Thankyou and apologies for putting a personal matter onto a bike forum.

Hi Soda.
I have just merged your thread into the thread I started about Frank. (keep it all grouped)
You have my number now, so call whenever. Obviously best if we keep this off the forum for privacy reasons.
You will receive an email to say I have responded to your post. No need to respond here if you wish not to.
