    moved to Australia from NZ 9 months ago and bought
    my current BLACKbird the fastest coloured one in black

    i am a member of a few other forums both in australia and overseas mainly relating to the blackbird or honda products

    mods to my blackbird include

    corbin seat
    power commander 3 with custom map
    full akrapovic 4-1 with titanium can
    k&n filter
    tom tom rider v2 gps fitted

    my hobbies include rc cars and helicopters +making my bike go faster and getting older without growing up (now 40 with the mental age of a 25 year old )
  2. I think you left out you shoe size and sexual preference :LOL:
    Oh, and Wilkommen
  3. Welcome, I'm sure you'll like this place better than all those NZ forums... we all know what goes on over there.

    Now thats someone we can all aspire to be!

    I was in fact referring to the beautiful scenery in New Zealand and the lack of members on NZ forums due to everyone being outside. I bet you all thought I was talking about something else now, didn't you :p
  4. Welcome to Netrider :).
  5. Wow a mental age of 25 :shock: . Thats a lot better that some of the netrider males :LOL: :LOL: :LOL:

    Welcome aboard
  6. inc me, as im 20 :p

    im fairly new to Mr. 051100xx

    (theyre all nuts!!!!!!!!!)

    Id like to try RC helicopter but can just about get to grips with an RC plane, so not really any hope!
  7. cheers for the welcome guys

    have been lurking for a while now and thought i better join in and talk some bullsh1t along with everyone else :LOL:

    i once owned a car and it was the worst year of my life(wrx sti subaru)
    it may of been fast and handled well but it still got stuck in traffic
    only ever ridden bikes apart from this one year

    is it me or are aussie car drivers all slightly unstable or are they compensating for a small body part as they seem to be some of the worst drivers in the world and can't stand to be passed by a bike

    now i have driven in the usa ,london,nz,japan,and the only people worse than the aussie driver seems to be in india

    again cheers for the welcome
  8. Hey Welcome :grin:
