A big fan here... Neil Pert(sp) is a fantastic drummer. They had many a great hit over the years. But as for a tour.... who would know.

Im probably not the first sucker to have boosted his income, if I can I would like to be sure I do what I can to be the last.
My usual conservative approach to people like him is to hunt them down and drive a stake through their heart!

As you are the one who has lost the cash you might prefer a more aggressive approach!

When we did the Wanaaring OCR, I noticed the Bourke Shire council trucks placing signs on the highway south. You can't see them with the scrub so close to the highway and they are well camouflaged for it. 2 steps from them, and they're in harms way.

hence the cull ......
Hi Phil, In the 70's I was managing a diving company and one of our expat divers lost his wife and two children after hitting a camel on the way back to Abu Dhabi from Dubai on a shopping trip. They were out on holiday from the UK.
Especially driving/riding in the desert at sunset the camels are almost invisible. I had a lucky escape at that impending sunset time when the car in front, maybe 200 metres, jabbed his brakes and woke me up. Bill

Hi Mick, Can't you contact the mods on the site ? I had 2 bad experiences buying off this site from US members. One was resolved, the other not. But on the unresolved one a US site member tracked him down and gave him shit, unfortunately to no avail. Good luck with your problem. Cheers Bill

Does anyone relate to this show?
I've watched 2 episodes and it all seemed to be the same stuff. (no it wasn't a repeat!)
I mean, it's all well intentioned, but seemed be to heavily focused on the HD types, you know, the Bad Boy Dentists and Rebel Accountants. It also seemed to go on about the issues dragged out of the 80's.
Is there really more depth to this show and I happened to catch the only 2 crappy episodes?

I'm sure there is a market for some really good motorcycle shows on TV.

As a comparison, 4wdTV, is inclusive for many forms of 4wd Clubs and events.
It's.

Spare a thought...

...for Daniel Morcombe, whose (too few) remains were buried today. What that young boy must have suffered before his eventual death would have been horrific. How his mother and father have keep going these last nine years is totally beyond me. Rest In Peace, Daniel.
