Why would anyone live in Sydney

Slightly more serious note ... if you need to park it in the yard, pour a block of concrete, a big 200Kg+ fucker, bigger is better, and mount your chain anchor in that. If I HAD to live there I'd be taking every precaution I could come up with that didn't make the bike completely unrideable.

Of course, YMMV.

10' containers are a 20' cut in half, if you look closely you will see the corner castings are only at one end.
They are done in Oz for the domestic market only.

All good reasons there mate and I hope it all goes well for you.

I personally think Sydney is a great place.

My girlfriend and I were on a long trip and her son was whinging so she said ,here I have just bought this movie called the Tudors watch this you might learn something about history. Couldn't believe how quiet it was for the next half hour until my son alerted us to fact it wasn't a history lesson he was getting !

Despite the fact that Henry has movie star looks and perfect teeth it roughly follows history. Son might have been distracted by the heaving corsetted bozzies and rumpy pumpy. I wasn't. I approach it from a purely historical perspective...

Yes same as the GF Davo. It was thought to be a history lesson as thats the reason she bought it. The young bloke got a lesson of different sorts but never got to complete it !
Apart from that it is very interesting .
