Years ago, driving my truck along a freeway doing 80/90kph, got passed by a bloke in an open top sports car doing around 120kph [my guesstimate] steering with one knee, eating an open can of mixed fruits with a spoon for his breakfast [both hands off the wheel].

Another was a guy in a Jaguar, pulled up at the lights next to me [he was in the lane on my right], I looked across to see the girl in the passengers seat leaning across giving him a head job : the girl had a short dress and a cute butt.

And I recently nearly got taken out by a twit texting on his mobile as he blew through a stop sign.

You need to be super sharp to stay alive on the roads these days [I drive for a living so see lots of close calls on a daily basis].

Sydney drivers have a lot to learn, they are bloody amuteurs.








Both the rider and the bus driver went through a red arrow!

Dassantmata, so long as the horn works.

No doubt as a world weary traveller you can tell me the city that I shot this in.

And if you name the bar from which I was sitting in, (clue, a bloody crazy Colloingwood fan who had flown out ln 2009 to watch his beloved Pies win the Grand Final, and whose sports bar was covered in AFL photo's

I'll get the rider to deliver you free pizza's for a year

George and the Dragon, Prague? Pretty sure I got stopped by the local constabulary just near there - inadvertently followed a tram on the Burgman into the old town square around 3 and 1/2 years back.

How do you like your pizza Enzo?

You are the man.

Well done

We shipped our bikes into Izmir last March with Get Routed, (Dave's 1st crack at the Turkish market and we did have a few hic ups dealing with Turkish officials, Greenbacks are your friends , but he is doing it again this year)

Turkey is amazing, the traffic is something else, as I said, a loud horn is your best bet. It is also a bloody big country.

Cheers

Seems a popular watering hole.

From memory he had at least 7 big TV screens around the wall, showing any sporting event on, even down to Tiddlywinks.

And what was even more amazing, he, being a mad eye dyed in the wool Collingwood supporter, was intelligent and articulate

Oh dear, I think I may be in deep poo poo's, I just remembered, one of our most esteemed moderators is a Collywobble tragic

Oh well, such is life.
