I ride past there everyday to work, and always wondered who made those
tracks  :D  I should've known  :roll:

Seriously, MacDuff is correct....It is a protected area, but as you didn't know, you're forgiven  :D

BUT, if I ever see fresh tracks again one day when you once again
have a bike?  :argue:  :wink:

Note to self: learn how to use the DC to take good pic's :oops:

Job creation is big down here.

Do people in Oz still have garage attendants?
Dudes who throw in your petrol for you?

On the mainland no, down in Tasmania yes.

But Tassie is famous for being 50 years behind the rest of us.

Wait till you ride in the USA...every petrol station has a different system to make the bowser operate. :roll:

The only one I had no trouble with...and all the Americans did...was the 40 year old bowser in Yellowstone National Park.
Valorie said, "Well how about that, a pump that you can operate and I can't...I notice this one is 40 years old pal, kinda puts it all in perspective for ya huh?"
Funny gal :roll:  :D
