Calling Melbourne...you're there?
« on: September 15, 2006, 07:49:47 am »
A big G'day to all

It's Pete from Melbourne and Leon H posted a link I stubbed my toe on, so it's all his fault.  :D

I'm waffling again, the real intro's over here -->

G'day to you too mate! Welcome.

I got a mate over there, in Canberra to be precise, but he's into crotch rockets, bummer. I've been trying to get him onto a DS bike for awhile. It almost worked as he was looking at a BMW just before he got the Blade. I'm definitely going to point him to your ride report, so he can see what he's missing.

How come Sefricans get stoopid when they go over there, what are you blokes doing to them? Hope he sees the light after reading your awesome post.

Keep us in the loop. One day when I'm grown up, I'll come over there to ride......
Don't look back, that's not where you're going.

Morning,

Its very multicultural here, we have lots of different Nationalities, Porra,s Welsh, Sarf Africans et al. So guess an Aussie will be o.k. and I will be neutral in the Ashes series, as I dislike both nationalities.  :twisted:  :twisted:

Welsh  :D


If man evolved from monkeys and apes, why do we still have monkeys
and apes?
