    HI from Australia

    A newbie here from down under!!

    My first ride is a 6'10" thruster for the waves......gotta have priorities!!
    Then I'll choose my '03 stumpjumper fsr
    after which I'll ride my new Bianchi which I just bought from eBay, some help to identify would be great!
    Most of all I love to ride my '62 matte black Vespa! No bling just style......

    Foresters beach. God's own back yard, holiday resort and suring playground. The poor guy would have to travel a little way to get a good ride in on his roadie or full suss bike.

    Here's a question for you.

    My fiance asked how to turn the BBQ on, I said turn the gas control to 9 o'clock. Her reply........

    Do I turn it to 9 am or pm..........no she's not blonde!

    Good to part of a community of like minded freaks trying to hurt themselves every time out!!

    My wife's mum had a house up there. And my neighbors had a little beach shack too. Nice, but boring and remote. Newcastle had good trails in the bush, plenty of bitumen for roadies, plus a track. And given the amount of surf competitions I saw at Nobby's, it must have rated pretty decent for surf. But it's all good. Australia is a great place to live if you're single.

    Um yeah thanks. I guess that's like saying all americans are fat. If you need a bustling city full of noise, rude, attached people, we have those places too!! Dont worry Australia is only about 10 years behind the states in alot of your bad habits, so come back again sometime, it'll be more like home then. America is a great place to be if your single with an Aussie accent! haha

    Don't take it personal. It was just too expensive to live there with my wife and three of our kids. It's a nice to place to visit if you're single with an American accent...

    I think it will become pretty expensive in the US from now on if the USD keeps going down.
