G'day!

Well, I see I've lost my #2 postwhore status.

Here're a few pics for ya. Finally got my mountain bike a couple of days ago. Susan's arrives today. We had to have them special ordered 'cause we're both midgets. This Trek 6700 is very similar, component-wise, to the 8900 I had in AZ. It came with SRAM shifting, which I hated, so the shop swapped out shifters - to rapid fire - and rear derailleur (both to XT upgrade at no extra cost). Also switched brakes operation for me - yes, even bicycle front and rear brake operation is bass ackwards down here. Also a pic of a blue tongued skink I caught in the back yard a few days ago (sorry for the blurry one, but it gives you an idea of why they are so named), and the new barbecue setup we just purchased. And yes, that IS The Pete at the controls.

The motor is supposed to be on the bikes, not the pit. And, be careful what you pick up in the yard.

Re: G'day!



If I had something like that walking around my back yard, I'd reconsider my personal ban on firearms!!!

Re: G'day!

So is the HEMI (TM) there to turn the rotisserie at 30000RPM? I would think that most cuts of meat would disintegrate from the centrifugal force.

And then there's this asshole...

Re: G'day!

Dude I lived there for two years, why didn't you bring the MTB with you? What did you pay for that thing? Every bike I looked there was like twice the US value. I considered becoming a shimano smuggler, I could have made more the the crack smugglers...

Re: G'day!

Glad to see ya back on the .Org ...

Why you would trust "PETE" with the lower, suction, part of your BBQ I am at a loss. Down under, left, right, up, down.... You do remember who... what... you are , don't you??!!??

Life always looks better through bugs on a face shield.

Re: G'day!

Re: G'day!

Aychdot - two wheels without a motor is expensive enough down here. The lizard is harmless - I'm waiting to catch one of these! http://faunanet.gov.au/wos/factfile.cfm?Fact_ID=294

Mo Noyz - totally harmless and very cool lizards.

Phobia - You want one, don't ya?!

CBR929RE - those are Ohlins, fellow midget.

sheep - a koala will tear you a new asshole, mate.

Getsome - It does steaks in 16.8 milliseconds...

Mojave - reptiles are my friends; see BladeRider's post below re: bike prices here.

BladeRider - The 6700 retails for $2,000 Oz dollars. I got it for $1,650 with quite a bit of "stuff" thrown in. That's about $1,200 US, so not a bad deal.

cbr99xx - Where the hell is Pete anyway? Sure looks like him at the BBQ controls.

Zeeman - Yep, reptiles are cool! We have Shingle Back Lizards in the yard too - I'm sure I'll find one before long.


Whew..... I feel like I just pulled a "Chain".

Re: G'day!

Being a herpetologist (kinda) I hope you take care with what I think is the number 2 most venomous snake in the world... (we have 8 of the top ten and all the top 5....)
