  1. So other then being total legends and bike lover's what is our daily grind? What finances our favorite hobby of riding?

    I am myself a Lab Technician at Boral. I am mainly in a QA role where by I reverse engineering asphalt to make sure it is in spec in relation to vic roads specifications / standards. So essentially I make sure the asphalt Boral delivers (Mainly in Geelong but sometimes in Melbourne lab's) will last the test of time.

  6. Why do you want to know what we all do Mr BrettoBretto ?
    We all ride isn't that qualification enough... :)
  7. Secret plans to take over the world..... Haha.
    Nah just a curious bloke. Also doesn't hurt to find out what some people do for a living. Sometimes they can help you out of a pickle.

  20. I love gardnening...I will miss all my herbs and citrus whilst I am up north :( Nothing like being able to go grab some fresh herbs by just walking out your back door.
    I have a soft spot for natives but so do the dogs :eek:
    I will get back into proper gardneing once I am pet free...if ever
