Australian contingent

Let's see.

Buddy Hayden (bike shop musician), Fatal Justice (I sense I know this person), Allister the Scot...

Yikes!

Media Creations: the west coast is a place I would like to see!

John999, are you from the GreatLand, or just a pretender?

I remember Dutchy from another place altogether...does "TreeTrunk" ring a bell?



(Now, back to your regularly scheduled programming...)

Yeah, I'm living in Darwin, but originally from Adelaide.

Lots of people don't have cars in Darwin ; the yearly vehicle checks are really strict and besides - where can you drive to ?

And there's me, "way on down south, Melbourne town".

It's true! Apart from city speed limits, there are none on the open road. My brother was based in Katherine for a while at the air base and the guys had a bet going to see who could get their motorbikes up to 300kph/187mph. I don't know whether the police caution drivers, for excessive speed, but there are no limits. We drove from Katherine to Darwin about 300km (from memory) in about 2 hours, not something I would recommend doing, but fun nonetheless.
Curiously, even with no speed limits a lot of people still drove at 110kph/70mph or less.

CHEERS.
