  1. Just wondering if it was all licenced riders or just newly licenced ones.....

  7. Well, you are supposed to feed them to the road. But if you dont feel up to it, the sandpaper at least makes it look like you care (TAC - helping bikers pose more effectively)

  10. yeah I got my TAC Sandpaper, I thought WTF!?

    They said that this is what the road is like when you hit it without gear on... Imagine the lean angles you could get if the roads were paved with sandpaper!

  15. you are suspose to keep it and polish Mr Bracks car with it .

    TAC initative to remind you about not wearing protective clothing.
    all jokes aside you are talking about it and its raised a sort of awareness , so it has achieved its objective.
    If it save 1 rider going through surgery , its paid for all the sand paper.
    good idea i recon

    I would have thought 80 grit sandpaper was smoother than the road.

    WHAT A F$#%^#@^%$^ WASTE OF MONEY

    ITS NOT ENOUGH THE BA5TARDS STING THE ROADS WITH WRBS AND DISTRIBUTE CAR LICENSES ON THE BACK OF WHEATIES PACKETS (or so it would seem) THEY HAVE THE GALL TO PATRONISE US LIKE THIS?

    SACTIMONIOUS PRIX!

  17. Woot - I just won a copy of the Ride On DVD by entering their competition on the 'spokes' website.

    It's a bit freaky, my 3 digit code has the same as the numbers as my bikes rego plate, go figure.


    Thanks for confirming that it's only for new riders, I thought it may have had something to do with our $50. It's a good idea if it stops someone from squidding.

  18. malissa just got some paper today, must be a yearly thing or something i guess :?

    WOW! 60 grit this year :shock: they're really trying to push that message across eh. next year it'll be 40 grit, and the year after that, they'll send out the toilet paper your work uses :LOL:
     
     Top
  19. Hey that toilet paper is good (parden the pun) sh!t for rubbing back your panels prior to painting them!!!

  20. I just got mine in the mail, along with the code.
    I got my L's in March.

    The first 6000 entries (In Victoria) get a free 'Ride On' DVD or VCR - just for entering the scratchie code you get (On the www.spokes.com.au website)

    After I submitted my info, it said my DVD was on the way… Cool!
