    Unless I'm mistaken a Motobi 250, you will up against the odd Horex, Benelli , Jawa, Ducati, BSA C15,Bultaco ,NSU. There is a Motobi already running

    Go on, you know you want to . Swmbo will only be angry for a week.:evil:evil:evil

    Its a Benelli, but basically the same bike except for a few cycle parts and no egg shaped rocker cover. The dipstick has " Motobi" on it.

    One day it will go.:deal

    You lucky. My mate got hung up by his daks after rigging the high end of a flying fox out of a walnut tree. Daks eventually ripped and you coulda drawn a chalk outline of him around the dent he left in the ground :lol3 That night he was meeting his then-girlfriend's parents for the first time, with an arse cheek hanging out of his daks and his wedding tackle on display when he walked away from you... she wasn't very 'impressed' but it must've worked, they're married now. :clap

    I find they are overpriced when you already have one, but affordable if you really want it...:rofl
    All I saw really were the spoked wheels and ATE front end :evil

    You're damn right. Along those lines if you want to buy something on trademe that something costs a fortune & there are never any around. You go to sell something & suddenly they're worth nothing & being imported by every bugger from china.

    I'm still kicking myself for turning down that bloody R100 for $800- DOH!!!

    Frozen Planet.

    How come the helicopter manages to find the wolves tracking the herds of Bison/ yak things?

    How does the helicopter find the school of Orca hunting a minke whale?

    Photoshopped???? Set up???

    Yes it is off topic.

    Frozen Planet is the best thing I seen on tele for ages. Killer whales (are they not Orcas anymore?) belong on the animal wall of coolness.

    If the helicopter hadn't scared the bison then the wolves could have just snuck up on them and not wasted all that energy chasing them.

    Apparently that was filmed at a Zoo, not in the Artic. There was a bit of woo-haa about that a while ago. Disappointing eh. :lol3

    OK then. How the hell did the penguins evolve to stand there all winter, in the middle on Antarctica, with eggs on their feet. I mean, evolution is a pretty slow process, so how did they just come up with doing that shit.

    They're obviously not the smartest critters around, but they must be bloody tough.
