Red bull

  1. What is with the people putting soft drink cans on their bikes?
    Did I miss the joke?




    I remember years ago I read about some n00b rider who stopped off at a servo, bought 2 cans of 'NOS' soft drink and poured it into his fuel tank then posted about it on a forum - is this related?

  10. but seriously, a lark is a bit of a joke, in Aussie slang

    Lark A merry or hilarious adventure. “That was a bit of a lark.”

    there are heaps of others, too, read and giggle, http://www.essortment.com/all/aussieslangwor_ruuv.htm

    Loz has a bottle, not a Red Bull one, on the side of his bike, but I believe it performs an actual purpose :LOL:

  12. What joke, the one about Red Bull cans, the one about the use of the word 'lark' or the complete disrespect I and others have shown for your thread by derailing it into discussing 1960s American cars ? :rofl:

  13. Back on track for a minute… I've got one on my bike because I've never seen it done here in Australia, but was fairly popular back in the US. It's more of a boredom thing than anything, and it looks funny with the hose coming out of the "bottom of the can"

  14. But quite good American cars though Paul... :)

    Somewhere here there's a thread about an idiot who put NOS energy drink in his gsx because he thought it was a fuel additive. Can't find it with a search though.

  15. Yeah, that thread was good quality.

    to make it look like a reservoir for a top spec ohlims rear shock

    ?????

  19. Precisely why I didn't use a NOS brand drink for mine. Last thing I need is some twit jumping down my throat because he thinks I'm using something that shouldn't even be illegal in the first place.
