    Coming to my 40th (the bike riding bit). Very elite group. Wouldn't want to miss it. So far its only me, Camo and Mudders. Wonder why?

    To Lee Gunn,

    As a truck driver who used to spend far more time than ideal on Melbournes freeway system, I am pleasantly surprised that the traffic problems are so easily fixed.Thank you for taking 95 seconds of your so important life to find this miracle cure for us all! Your not a politician are you?

    How about also making it compulsory for commuters to pull their heads out of their arses between 7.30 +9.30.

    Dont suppose making your fat arsed kids walk the 800metres to school would help in any way ?

    To everyone else that likes to bitch about trucks hogging the roads, when you become the awsome drivers that most people think they are, then tell me how trucks should go about their business.

    Drive a 26metre double cross town in peak hour at 68 tonne + you will soon see that YOU are the only amazing driver on the road.

    If trucks scare you, stop trying to make them run over you!

    Truck drivers Rock!!

    I had 23 tonnes of gravel delivered by Boral the other week !!

    this bloke had the dog full and the trailer full and he backed it down a reasonably steep driveway with inches either side !! and then got her straight back up with out a hitch!

    The dude didnt skip a beat!! I have enough trouble backing our mid sized car up and down!!

    I'm with you dude. (sorry Lee)

    As soon as School Hols kick in the roads are almost deserted.

    The other thing is that most people don't realise that their food, clothes, fuel, toys - just about everything people need to conduct their lives is on those trucks.

    The other thing that shits me (and I've posted this before) is the single car occupant driving to work. I used to count them on the pushy going down bridge road at Richmond into the city. Not only would I watch them come out of the sidestreets where they lived, but I would always beat them, as well as an average pedestrian. I hate car drivers due to their unpredictable driving patterns, trucks on the other hand, generally don't do stupid, last second shit.

    Oh yeah, and I hate you all.

    Well done that man,

    What a giggle this is to read all the "this is the last time you'll see me post here" "mum he's using my text format", "I'll never read it" drivel.

    FFS if you don't agree with it don't frigging click on it! But there are many who will be thinking "I bet those ingrates are having too much fun" it would be interesting to see a lurkers list for this thread wouldn't it?

    If it works it will work, if it doesn't, it won't, whats all the hand wringing and faux indignation about?

    Anyway, good luck, I'll be lurking and posting when I have something to say, it will be interesting to see how it goes assuming there won't be the US involvement there is on JM and the nONGA (Trev) thread.

    Cheers

    Hey Doc,

    I check the ride reports but don't seem to see (my fault probably) any rides you do.

    You have a big voice on the Oz forum but would like to see the more human side of you. Please correct me if I am wrong.
