TweetFacebookBorn and Bred Bag It: The Pasha Bulker was the inspiration for this gearbag.

Here at Topics, we love patriotic Novocastrians. They don’t come much more patriotic than Johnny McLean, managing director of Lusty Industries.

Johnny created a top-notch gearbag called the PashaBulka.

He also created the De’Luge gearbag –which was named after a mountain bike track atGlenrock State Conservation Area.

“Obviously the Pasha Bulker is pretty synonymous with this area,” Johnny said, adding that “we ride the DeLuge every other day”.

The idea was to pay homage to Newcastle.

The gearbags carry the OGIO brand, which is big in motorcycle and bicycle circles.

Lusty Industries, which is based at Wickham, distributes OGIO bags.

“I worked [on the bags] with OGIO, which is a US company,” Johnny said.

In the Bag: The gearbag that’s named after a mountain bike trail in Newcastle.

“I wanted to putmy own spin on it.”

So why did he givethe bags Newcastle-inspired names?

“Because we’ve got the best city in the world,” Johnny said.

“Having that Newcastle attachment to a global brand is pretty cool.”

The bags cost $369 each.

“These bags are the most premium, expensive bags,” he said.

Asked where his company’s office was, the born and bred Novocastrian said “two doors down from The Lass”.

Can you get much more Novocastrian than that?

Topics reckons it wouldn’t be out of place in Novocastrian culture to describe every placein Newcastle by its distance tothe nearest watering hole.
