  8. 'ello gadget.

    Welcome to NR. :)

    It says you're from Lane Cove... do you ever bump into the stumpy one?

  9. I lived in Jakarta for 2 1/2 years, in the late eighties, when my old man was working for Foreign Affairs.

    Only place I've seen drivers turn a three lane road into six, or more! :grin:

    People talk about squidding and stuff over here. They ain't seen sh*t. I once saw a family of SIX on a bike over there. Two kids on the tank, then Dad, then another kid, and lastly Mum, holding a baby! At least the kids had helmets on...

    ...plastic toy baseball helmets! :shock:
  10. :LOL: Squidding makes filtering & splitting easy...
    Have you ever seen the biggest group ride there? It's when they have an election.

    and with the bike like this....


    BTW my brother lives in Sunnybank Hills and he has a gixxer. He spends most of his times abroad tho
  11. Yeah... as long as it looks like a helmet, these are okay too:

  12. Or funeral. Man, what a sideshow!
