  3. Welcome aBoard Gonz1!

    I'm ex-Perth (been over here 3 1/2 years), but the West still feels like home.

  13. gday to the perth riders,i hope to be there for a week in decenmber
  14. Hiya and Welcome. Good to see some bod's from the other side...
  15. Hey gonz, welcome to the forums :)
  16. Hi gonz , welcome the the forum . U will fit in fine as long as u dont ride an across.
  17. gday to all, yes its a great place to ride weather wise, the only thing is that unlike you guys all our fun roads are inland, so while your out there not only do you need to make sure you make the corner or your off into ruggered bush and its never pretty but there is heaps of wild life too,
    i do miss my nsw roads havin grown up in sydney, i also miss the variety of tracks i had there, here we just have wanneroo raceway(V8 super cars race there!)its ok and its just been resurfaced but not as fast as say eastern creek or phillip island :cry:
    but we do have great bike scene here, we are pretty close nit but always growing :wink:
    we now have what you guys already have..."anti hoon laws" now this is a crock of shite, it all came about when ch7 today tonight came along and exposed local extreme riders carving up local streets and freeways and making videos as you do :D
    knee jerk reaction was to speed up the anti hoon law....also for those of you who dont know our speed cameras take the photo from the...wait for it...the front :LOL: i kid you not :!:
    so we have been getting away with quite abit for some time now and were just pissed at the changes :cry:
    but you get that,
    cheers for the replies yall,
  18. Yeah Gonz, but remember - WA speed camera also have a bright flouro yellow sign about 3ft past the camera saying "you have just gone through a radar" (like you can't see the sign from about 400m away) AND the vans they roll around in are a "Mitsubishi Speed Camera" model with a VERY distinct rear windscreen, which they park next to the camera. AND, if it weren't enough, they have the same favourite haunts...

    Getting done by a camera in WA can be a real effort. Fortunately they still have cops in the bushes with a gun and a pursuit car 500m down the road in places, otherwise the intelligent motoring public might not get their yearly fines.
  19. cheers all for the welcome an as for the post whore i will try my best ok lol
    gotta love that slower rate of progress over here huh :D take it easy all
  20. Gday from Queensland :D

    Welcome... Stay safe
    Lisa :twisted:
