haha no worries...its for everyone's benefit.

Just on the flights, pay the extra R500 or so (cost with qantas) to get the flexi/refund option for in case you have issues with your visa or your plans changes. 6months is a long time

UPDATE! - Passport verification done this morning, then off to bank to finalise home loan notice....now we wait some more

Why are people leaving for Oz, if you don't mind my asking? I haven't really looked at that part of the world but NZ seemed the more preferable.

We applied for a NZ visa first. It was halted because of a technicality, and we had to go the longer and more difficult route to apply for Aus visa instead. We ended up in Melbourne.

In general Aus has:
- more space
- better weather
- more work and other opportunities
- bigger economy
- higher salaries
- worse rugby
- fewer Hobbitses

Many people born in NZ eventually leave the country for better opportunities, since the NZ passport allows automatic rights to work and stay in Aus (altough itís not the same as permanent residency).

That does not mean NZ is a bad choice, it is beautiful with many opportunities. In many cases, you go where your visa takes you.

This basically. Auz pays more, like the difference between pta and jhb and as mentioned most NZ can work in aus without issue.

Apparently also the very up down hillyness of NZ catches a lot of ppl that don't like it

I guess the concept is okay, except I really donít like the way they assume this is what everyone wants. I mean the whole idea of a bike is to add a bit of excitement and risk to our lives right? Why else is it so liberating to ride.

Now we have som bright spark taking that away from us to protect us from ourselves... no I donít like this one little bit

Frikkin laser beams. On their heads... touchť ;D

ABS, Traction Control, Cornering ABS, Active Suspension...Radar. The technological march continues whether we like it or not. Personally I'm happy with it; just the other day we had a video of a biker being taken out from behind by a taxi in his blind spot. If he was riding a Ducati with this system then he arguably wouldn't have had the accident. How many videos do we see of bikes sailing straight into the back of a stationary car? This system would help avoid that.

The same arguments have gone back & forth in the car world with technology taking the driving experience away, and I agree with those saying that it ultimately creates worse drivers. The operator of a vehicle should wake the fck up and be in active control at all times, check his blind spots and learn how to brake properly. Many fail at all three of these though.

I can only hope that, as it is in the car world, those that are awake are left with a few "unsafe" options on the market  ;D

Problem is if this decides to kick when i am swerving it might even cause an accident vs saving one...

Not so sure on this....
