... wasn't that one around 15 years ago?

I thought this one was because of the "Global Credit Crisis"

No this is not the recession we had to have...

It was gods will

Queensland LABOR MP James Bidgood,
"I believe when Christians pray, God does things. I believe what is happening today is as much to do with God in economics bringing judgement."

He goes on to warn that "there is God's justice in action in what has gone on here".

"I believe there is God's justice in action in what is going on here. We haven't seen the end of it. The ultimate conclusion is like I say, we look at Bible prophecy, we are going towards a one world bank and a one world monetary system. And if you believe the word of God and you read Revelations...you will see clearly what is being spelt out. We are in the end times."

God must bless the Labor preselection process

Pissed

I reckon there are gonna be heaps.

My favorite suzuki dealer (small) has about 5 second hand weestroms and 4 newies on the floor. The bike shop is bursting - no ones buying second hand.

IMO heres gonna be a lot of discounting and that includes blue and orange stuff.

As most riders are hobbyists (weekend riders) they are ageing and well healed they will buy new and there will be plenty of second hand low k bargains.

With less riders entering the market and Asia manufacturing of all brands theres gonna be some Crazy crazy crazy, walking out the door... all buy themselves prices.

However Velocette prices remain high

Davo do you think less riders?? I think given that peak oil is only a blip away and people generally feel the need to buy something in their life and the two big ticket items of cars and Houses are sort of off the list people may came back to the humble motorbycycle?? cause it will reduce pressure on thir fuel bill and release the need for that extra car therby opening up some cash!!

and whola we have a heap of bikes out the door!! its only a theory and hell I am wrong so many other times a day I wont go to die in a ditch over this theory!!

Some good points - I have no data to support my assertions.

I'd like more to be riding but I dont think its going to happen.

I reckon most folk will be choosing the path of least resistance ...little cars, hybrids which should be starting to come on stream in a big way in a few years time.

Most arent up to riding.

So this is how I argue my cheap bikes theory.

Yeah I would like to see more riding for many many reasons environementally and socially!!

I wont go into the full tirade here but on the bike I feel part of the landscape - you feel the change in temperature as you hit a gully line in the winter - in summer time I can smell the sorghum producing alcohol in the paddocks it just feels awesome more people should soak it up - I reckon going to get bread and milk on the bike is one of the best stress relevers a man can have!!

We just cant afford to drive patrols and cruisers for ever (mind you my work prado gets better mileage than my personal honda CRV) and bikes are a better option!!

Floods where ok, I took water samples all the way down the Namoi Today from gunnedah to just out of walgett and will do the same on sunday or monday,put water over the bonnet of the prado and got a look of death from my boss - I just replied its insured and they float pretty well so we should be right!!

I heard that they one family still had about 20000 acres of wheat they are trying to get off they had 15000 off but this last lot of rain will mean the wheat will spring and shoot talk about break your heart first crop in 8 years and know it will shoot !!




Abot 400 metres from the house ( I was considering floaties for the Dogs)



Just down the road a bit



this is the fourmile TSR (travelling stock reserve) about 200 head of cattle where in here amazingly they had been on the road for 2.5 years going round in circles to walgett and back!!




flood waters on the mighty Mooki River



and last but not least waters going under the bluvale bridge (next to fourmile) the water usually sits to the left of those eucs in small degraded and sinous gravel bed!
