    That's intense, not a lot of room on that road too by the looks of it. What'd you do? I think this would have triggered me and I would have hit/kicked their car/s. Fucking idiots. I wonder if they realise that one dented panel from you would probably cost more than replacing the Himma.

    That would look cool with a chrome front fender.

    Only the eastern states. South Australia was always a free colony, in fact, we used to transport criminal types to Tasmania :D

    Not quite, they sent the criminals to run the place, so we got a better class of lawbreaker.
    The English based insurance companies were getting a free ride without any lower class criminals , so they were quickly imported by government supporters and were allowed free reign by the police force.
    So the current party in power was actually founded on the proceeds of crime, and of course our Federal government is still largely financed by it.

    Lane splitting isn't common locally here. About how fast when the negotiation impasse happened?

    a bit to close for comfort as I don't trust the drivers.
    Stay safe John

    Bike does not look to bad. Not sure if I like the neighborhood when you have chain and lock the bike up like that! When 18 I was looking a Norton Commando 850, went well but when I contacted the insurance company they would not insure it. Back then it was a bike that was stolen gangs. So ended up with a CB 750/4 Honda. Was probably a better bike and insurance was not a problem.:photog

    My old KLR was dragged out of the driveway and spirited away with only a disc lock on it. I had been considering an additional chain and when I (luckily) recovered the bike I used one.

    The Gangs are having a bad time if they are Targeting Himmas
    Whether the Cb750/4 is a better bike than a norton comando is some thing that could start a war between Nations!

    I always thought that if they were to bump up the cc's to around 500 and aim for the 30-35hp range the Himalayan would sell good. I know that there are big bore kits but most people are not going to buy a bike just to put a BB kit in it. The Hima already sells well enough but if it came off the factory floor with more ponies other companies would have a hard time keeping up.

    20 mph. Filtering - as it's called here, is totally legal. Many drivers are considerate. Some less, and others oblivious - usually on their phones.
