One question - where in God's name did you get that shirt? The person who let you out the front door wearing it should be shot.

Yep, those shows. and you are right, they were bloody loud. I reckon I would have seen you play around the traps at some stage 531 back in the old days - although Rocket was more the (cover) band of choice coz knew a couple of guys who played in it.

I was watching Campelltown Court one day in Legal Studies. (it was family court day) this wife basher shows up in court in an ACDC shirt and stubbies the judge asks, "dont you have something more appropiate to wear?" the bloke replies, "my suit is dirty I had to wear it [to this court] yesterday."

I couldnt stop laughing, to top it off he had this huge mullet. I felt sorry for the wife though.

thanks, they were great!

I think I better keep my nose out of it for awhile, before I get banned.
Right or wrong I certainly have inflamed koffee. But to my defense I dont see why I should give respect to mods its a friggin forum site, go have a look at some gaming forums, now they are insanely harsh. Secondly she bought up politics first.

But meh what can ya do?

Yep. Out east for me. Juice - massive bogan hangout. Went out there for a NYE just after it opened & only darkened it's doorstep once after that. Must admit to seeing Scat at the Manhattan tho....

looks like you found it https://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...=214055&page=9 I probably said some things I shouldn't have and those comments haven't helped my cause.

It would be nice if he was innocent, but we shall see. There is some room for doubt regarding his positive T/E ratio.

The irony of course is that all the seppo's were advocating that Basso and Ullrich should be hung by their gonads for merely having their names linked with a suspect doctor, then Landis returns a positive test and suddenly conspiracy theories and all sorts of other excuses are trotted out.

Yes, you could probably have worded your posts a little more diplomatically.

Actually, Hitchy the reason it's so quiet around here is that everyone has been scared off by the mullet-fest.

yep...found it....you haven't said anything to get you banned (although I only read the last 2 pages)....but to be on the safe side, perhaps an alternate 'profile' wouldn't hurt!

Actually, checking out the amount of hair in those photos, I reckon there were some pretty impressive T/E ratios right there.
