Re: No Helmet!!!

I know in SA when I started riding (early 80's) you didn't have to wear a helmet if you stayed under 25kph. I don't know if that still exists or if it applied to other states as well. I often used to ride without a helmet at night, sticking mainly to side streets and never got pulled over. Looking b...

Re: Distinguished Gentleman's Ride

That's the beauty of this event - everyone can be a distinguished gent (or lady) for just one day. I can assure you that many of the participants are not normally that gentlemanly. Well, at least I'm not...

Distinguished Gentleman's Ride

It's that time of year again when the Distinguished Gentleman's Ride is about to happen on the same day world wide. This year, it's on Sunday the 27th of September. Unfortunately, you have to register to get details of your local ride but you are not obliged to fund raise even though it is now a fun...

Re: 2015 USA

There's nothing like a road trip in the US! You're in some of my favourite parts of the country - the mountains of Wyoming & Montana. You should be passing (just off I90) an interesting collection of vehicles in Murdo (SD) in a private museum (the Pioneer Auto Museum). they even have a Tucker as wel...

Re: Hi from Sydney

Looks like the rim to me Prof, not a white wall. I did have white walls on the front (and rear) of the Dyna - Avon Venoms. http://i961.photobucket.com/albums/ae98/canbro65/IMG_2104.jpg There were other options at the time but the Venoms were the best value. Walker, there is Surfside Motorcycle Garag...

Re: Hi from Sydney

G'day Walker, welcome aboard. You'll need a photobucket account to host your photos so you can insert the link when you post in this forum. I just tried to get a couple of screen shots but my work won't allow me to log into photobucket (even though I could do it last week) - sorry. You may just have...

Re: On The Road

That's interesting info there Prof. Pity I've already paid it as it was over a month ago. I did think of contesting it but like most people figured the process was too time consuming. I think our fines are less here than in SA. I got a fine for 60 in a 50 zone in Adelaide about a year ago. I think i...

On The Road

I guess this photo, courtesy of the NSW Government, counts as an "On The Road Pic" http://i961.photobucket.com/albums/ae98/canbro65/HD/Speed_1_zpsruuuvjxo.jpg What's worse is that I know the camera is there - I was just reaching for the indicator to change lanes. Anyone who's used standard HD indica...

Re: Throttle Roll 2015 - Sydney

Absolutely - I have recently moved out of the inner city and now live in an outer suburb near some much better riding although most of it is restricted to 60 - 80 kph and heavily policed but it beats the stop start of inner city traffic! With any luck the Bonny may even be registered by then so I'll...

Re: '73 TR6RV bobber project

Finally, a tiny bit of progress after being stalled for a couple of years. I decided a couple of weeks ago that I would like a rectangular headlight then spotted this one on a Facebook page for $25. http://i961.photobucket.com/albums/ae98/canbro65/Tiger/Headlight_02_zpsrdv5wo21.jpg http://i961.photo...

Throttle Roll 2015 - Sydney

This event had its 3rd show a couple of weeks ago. This free event consists of a ride followed by a custom bike show with bands and heaps of bikes parked in the surrounding streets. It also seems to jinx my bike... Last year my throttle cable snapped on the morning of the event (at least I got to ge...

Re: A recent Sunday with CA...

"Unfortunately I had a swap meet in Tanunda to attend"

Sounds like a better option than riding from Willunga to Victor to me!

I'd have given the freeway a miss though and gone via Hahndorf, Woodside, Birdwood, Mt Pleasant etc going both ways :wink:

Re: What price a chopper...?

I guess it's a bit like asking "how long is a piece of string?"

If you have to pay someone to build it, then it will be expensive but if you can scrounge parts and do the work yourself, then it could be a relatively affordable exercise.
