  1. Got this link sent to me via Facebook and thought it was a good idea to share it.

  6. Try: "gladstone, QLD"

    [edit] Its probably because there is more than one city/town called Gladstone (eg there is one in NSW), so you need to be more specific. You may find this is the case with other cities/towns such as Darwin.

  7. It takes the general area of your IP address.

  8. I figured, but since im 100km (ride) from Sydney, i didnt think it was a good indication. But then i realised you could change the location.

  13. oh, and juzzydee, "smash out a few laps" might be going a bit OTT. i am a granny rider, like, really pretty much on speed limits. on roads i don't know, especially twisties, i'm below the speed limit most of the time lol.

    still wanna go riding with me?

  14. Figure of speech :p Mind you it IS a 40 zone the whole way through, so you might be hard pressed to stay under it the entire way :p But it's a good fun ride, and when a cruiser rider says smash a few laps, he certainly doesn't mean fast :p
