  1. 4x4 topic/crew pt II

    just got a new hilux, still stock at the moment, anyone know any decent places around adelaide i can take it? haven't done much off roading so just beginner to intermediate tracks would be sick. thanks
  2. Hey guys, A few friends have recently decided they wanna go around looking for abandoned/haunted/freaky places around Adelaide. Just wondering if anyone knew some good places? They were telling me about some house in Port Adelaide, and there's some old lady that lives there. Apparently she stands on the front porch and if you stop infront of her house she starts chucking stuff at you? and if you drive past a few times her neighbour comes out and starts chasing you? Dunno about the accuracy of this though... Anyways, we're not looking to be disrespectful or anything like that (eg. stuffing around in graveyards). Just wanna find some different form of entertainment during the darkness of night. Post up your stories! Cheers, Danny

    i'm really tempted by the diavel. seriously considering it because it'd be so much easier to live with day to day. the tuono hadn't even crossed my mind before you mentioned it, might have a look at that too

    not if they car isn't up to scratch. also alonso would be a pretty fierce team mate to have, potentially problems there, but apparent alonso and webber are good friends. i'd love to see webber at maclaren, but that's not going to happen.
  5. Formula 1 Discussion Topic

    agreed about monaco to be the most boring race of the season. despite this i think it'd be one of the best to attend. the atmosphere there would be so good in person, and soooo many hotties

    really hope it's just a track that suits redbull. such a awesome season so far, would hate to see them walk away with it from here. and what an awesome effort by ricciardo!
  7. You and Your Bike

    nice one mate! if i had my chance again to get a lams bike i reckon i would have gone the vtr, definitely feels more superior than the newer ninjas
  8. Formula 1 Discussion Topic

    one of the best races i've watched in a long long time! so much action! if the championship keeps going on like this, then it's gonna be an awesome f1 season
  9. Those who love cars, what do you think of motorbikes?

    used to be completely into cars, didn't take a second look at bikes, never thought i'd ride one. out of the blue one day i got my bike license and have never looked back. the thrill of a bike has completely ruined my interest in cars, i'd only ever get back into cars if one day i can afford euro (eg m3 etc). my bike can do 0 - 200 in about 6 secs, i doubt i could ever afford a car that could do that. but the most fun you can get from a bike, is cornering. nothing better than being fully leant over through a corner

    that isn't too bad at all. im paying 500 for a set at the moment, probably be around the same
  11. General chit chat thread!

    looks so awesome in person. stock rear tyre is a 240, so tough
  12. Softies SA Fishing Thread

    just got back from a browns trip, and what a trip it was! was casting lures down the beach until i found the school towards the far end. for a period of about 30 mins it was close to a fish a cast and a double header every 2 casts. fish definitely weren't as big as previous years, but still decent. not long after our group had about 30 fish, from there we just caught and released, awesome fun
  13. General chit chat thread!

    my favourite sounding bikes would be the aprilia rsv4 or the big bang R1. supposedly the engine in this new duc has characteristics more like an inline 4, not as much down low and a peakier delivery. from the reviews it's gotten so far it seems to be the new bench mark, but at 32k for the base model, and mid 40's for the top of the line, that is A LOT of coin for a bike
  14. General chit chat thread!

    oh for sure! the panigale is probably the best looking bike ever to have been made! at the moment ducati have further delayed the release of the panigale, originally it was supposed to be out march-ish. i'm can't wait to take a demo for a spin, i've been quite tempted to trade up just purely because of the looks
  15. General chit chat thread!

    they definitely do look better in real life. handling wise they're very nimble, my s1000 feels every bit as nimble through the tight stuff as my old 08 cbr600rr, but give the beemer any hint of a straight, and the power is just insane. ps the right side fairing is definitely the bikes pretty side
  16. General chit chat thread!

    sportsmarts are an awesome tyre, i absolutely love them. just be careful when you ride away from the workshop, they're very slippery when they're brand new, more so than any other brand of tyre ive experienced.
  17. General chit chat thread!

    are you already onto the edge of the tyre? have you had the suspension set for the bike? i think you'll find you still have a bit to go before your front tyre is over to the edge, get the suspension dialed in to wear both front and rear more evenly, you can do this by raising the rear, which will also give sharper turn in. after that you should probably just work on body positioning (ie hanging off), the idea being you want to be able to make the corner with your bike as upright as possible therefore giving you more grip.
  18. General chit chat thread!

    doesn't necessarily mean new springs, unless your weight is beyond the operating range of the factory springs. i'm assuming you're just getting the sags set? i had my suspension set up when i got my bike. they did the sags, bump and rebounds and raised the rear end to give the bike quicker turn in. a decent suspension tuner will know how to set your bike up by looking at how your tyres are wearing

    3.5k looks like an absolute bargain! did u buy it locally? i'm looking for something similar to that
  20. Best BBQ ribs in Adelaide...

    hahndorf inn ribs, their sauce is so awesome, make sure you order a extra portion of sauce. will not disappoint
  21. Where's my main man Honesty at?

    i agree, leaving the scene is a crime, you should report it however little damage was done. maybe teach them to think twice about doing it again
  22. Softies SA Fishing Thread

    that's f**king huge! i imagine that would have taken the whole boat for a swim
  23. Softies SA Fishing Thread
