  9. Hi,

    Is there motorcycle parking anywhere near the gates for the F1? Want to work out if it is worth going in on the bike.

    Thanks

  11. seeing as you can park on footpaths along st kilda rd, reckon you'd only be walking a short distance anyway..

  12. Agree with this. The residents on Middle park and South Melbourne sides get stroppy about anyone invading their space but St Kilda Rd has plenty of room. Beware of drunk idiots though.

  13. The weather should make the race worth watching. Does anyone know a stream for the bbc telecast?
     
     Top
  14. The BBC TV aren't covering it live this year (****s sold out to Murdoch), BBC Radio 5 will carry audio. Or Sky Sports (Foxtel) for the TV feed.

  15. That's gay, does anyone know of a stream from anything except the One telecast.

  18. Anyone got any suggestions on where to park the bike on the South Melbourne/City side? Clarendon St? Want the bike to be tucked away cos I'm worried about drunken idiots pushing it over. ANyone got any secret spots they want to share?
