General chit chat thread!

Recommended Posts

Agreed on the proper spelling. I absolutely hate trying to read that other crap. On another note my front tyre is bald

 

as a badger that's the main reason why I haven't been riding hard. Next week at the latest. The other thing is, I can't

 

decide on what to get....Pilot power 2ct? Pilot power Pure? or Pilot road cos it's coming up winter????

 

Leaning towards Pilot power.......again, and if I don't ride hard in the wet I will be fine :)

i remember the first quote i got, can't remember who it was through, but it was around 70% of the value of the bike each year. needless to say i went 3rd party only

I like how the bike section completly shuts down when the weather is shit :)

 

LOZ!, If you want some more activity in here, do you think you could invest in some sort of weather machine? :P

 

On another note.

Its another beautiful, warm, sunny day in brisbane. Time for some fun! :humpleg:

Damn. Wish I could ride hard today :(

 

Ive still been riding everyday, just haven't had a decent ride worth talking about. I did come across an absolute wanker

 

on a R1 Friday. I'm noticing a few of these lately. It's like, "Im way to cool to acknowledge other bike riders"

 

I was sitting at a set of lights behind a cager....when I see this R1 coming up behind me. I was sitting pretty close to the

 

white line (wheel track C) when this guy lane splits right past me, (fuck all room) I had my visor up, made eye contact

 

and said "G,day"....Nothing. His tyres had huge flat spots on them so I guess he just commutes anyway (loser)

 

Anyway, end rant. :)

Hahaha, Ive had that happen a few times. I put it down to them being comuters and not riders, so they dont understand the brotherhood of riders :P.

I also find that its generally comuters on bikes bigger than my own. "Oh, his bike is only a 600, what a girl....". HAHA, Id love to take them into the hills and let them show me how awesome their 1000's are.

Once Rossi is fully healed there should be some great racing this year

Damn it, Missed it ^^^^

 

A couple of weeks ago I saw a coppa riding a new Harley...f**k it looked like a piece of junk. The BMW's are such a better

 

bike (I know stuff all about the new cop bikes just my opinion).

 

It looked really big, it had heaps of shit hanging off it so ya can't lean them over with out scrapping everything.

 

It just looked slow and hard to ride, not to mention he shut it down at the lights so it wouldn't over heat LOL.

 

Good luck trying to catch me through the hills on one of them! :P :P B)

The more cops on harleys the better, can flog them on the straights and the twisties, much better for those over 45 moments :whistle:

G'day all, thought id pop in for a chat, been on here for a while, had a 180, had to sell due to being in the army, just not practical. but, it has opened up a perfect opertunity for me to go ahead and buy myself a spankin new R6.

living in Sydney Atm, but will be moving up to far north QLD, Townsville area. so will be keen to hit the hills with some of you guys if any are from there.
