BINGO flash looking bike.

I like to keep my bike as nice as possible but not at the expense of taking it anywhere I like.

But.... 3 weeks old. You'll get over it.

I bought a new Prado in '03 within the first week I had it around Skytreck.

Shakey, my friend..... You must report to the Principal's office immediately. You are being very disrespectful to those who know EVERYTHING.

Sort of agree with Rob, however...... That's a Disco 2 (or 3), it's worth 10k at best on a very good day.

But yeah I too have seen people drown their cars in crossings only 700 mm deep. When it doubles as a work car or daily driver it causes a lot of grief.

If It was me and a bike was happy to go first, I wouldn't argue.

Yep, maybe the guy in the Land Rover was a little scared but did you ever stop to think that if he acted just like you talk (too cool and super tough) then a few things could have happened;
  • He could have fucked his $60K vehicle
  • He could have been stranded there with his family
  • He could have endangered their lives by undertaking something that he wasn't confident in doing
He was doing ALL of that by simply following a couple of blokes on bikes.

All he had to do was WALK the crossing. Then make an assessment of the conditions, his vehicle and his own personal ability. Mate there are clowns everywhere, even at the circus!

I should have been out in the bush at 6.26pm on a school night? Don't I just wish...

As for being tough... NO far from it. Cool? Are you for real? They're things I last discussed in the playground.

I voiced an opinion of something on the INTERNET. End of story.

I wasn't aware that it was a weeing competition... how high up the wall did you wee? Post counts don't mean ANYTHING on the internet or in the real world.

Geez mate,

Didn't want to force you against a wall, just point out a different perspective on the actions.

Sorry that you feel the need to defend yourself against all and sundry.

For what it's worth, with just he and his family there, what would have happened if he DID walk the thing and it WAS too deep or strong and washed him away? Just sayin......

Anyway, ON WITH THE THREAD. No complete hijack intended!

Apparently, us low post count inmates are not allowed to have a different opinion to the high posters..... and DEFINATELY dont ever point out when they are wrong


On a brighter note, got the new front rim back for the fat girl today...happy days
Now I'm confused, you have a self admitted low post count AND your 9fiddy is so clean you obviously don't ride it....so what do you do all day ??

Yes. True. It's amazing how the Land Rover prices drop 40K when you leave the dealership.

Not so good resale values on those vehicles.

this is what I have, it was on the bike when I bought it, and it's got a bad ding in it, only gives me the shits about 50-60km/h, other that that all is good.

I've been thinking of swapping it out for an excel, or seeing if I can get the dent rolled out.
