Throttle Roll 2014

If you're in Sydney, then Throttle Roll is worth a look this coming weekend (Saturday & Sunday, May 10 & 11). Although put on by the Sydney Cafe Racers, there were a few nice choppers parked in the streets as well as plenty of desirable bikes in the streets and on display last year. There's a ride f...

Re: Here's the way to take photos on the run...

Apparently Kmart does a Go Pro rip-off for $49. Quite a few of the cafe racer guys here in Sydney use them with good results.

I've been meaning to get one myself.

You should take One Tree Hill Road from Golden Grove to Gawler (if you haven't already planned to do so). Plenty of corners and no traffic lights.

Enjoyable write up & pics as usual!

I haven't been to Marabel since maybe 1990. It's sure grown since then.

Hardtailed OIF Triumph Frame

It is with regret that I have decided to give up my TR6 chopper project. Quite a few factors have led to the decision but the end result is that I am wanting to sell the frame only and replace it with a standard '72 - '74 Triumph frame (if I can find one). The frame was already raked when I bought i...

Re: saltys sporty project

I recently put 3.5" risers with mini apes on my Dyna. It's not a great photo but it may help you visualise. The gauges don't do it any favours either...

Re: How Kool are These

The pub had already closed before filming. It appears to be a private residence now although I'm not sure if they run some sort of business from there on the ground floor. I've never seen anyone coming or going though.

Re: FXDS not exactly a chopper project...

I've made a little progress on this bike over the last few months. I'm not sure if I've posted some of these pics before so apologies if I have. I've managed to get it transferred to NSW rego which was a drama as my bike doesn't have a compliance plate. I've been riding again for about a month and h...

2013 Distinguished Gentleman's Ride - Sydney

The 2013 DGR took place last week. I haven't heard the official number but I'd say there was well over 200 - 250 bikes. The idea is to ride through the city in 'dapper' attire. Here's just a few random pics... The organiser is 2nd from left (next to green jacket) http://i961.photobucket.com/albums/a...

Pan Chop

Spotted this pan chop in Newtown (Sydney) this morning. I reckon Invader wheels look great. I've always heard that they tend to crack though. Can anyone verify or dispute this?

Vintage Leather Jacket

Dropped in to a local Vinnies this morning and found a leather jacket. I noticed it was in an older style, was made of thick leather and in good condition. The brand name was "Alaska" and it was only $38 so thought I couldn't go wrong. I had a better look when I got home and noticed that it was made...
