Any Sydney XR riders out there..??
« on: October 05, 2017, 08:11:26 PM »
Hi All,
Just wondering if we have any other Sydney, Australia XR riders out there??.....I know of a couple but would be nice if there were others we could ride with..We have a great little group of guys who regularly get together to ride and put crap on each other..! :016:

I’m not surprised i’ve a mate that goes to Phillip Island for the GP he’s not the most law abiding gent i’ve Ever come across he got a bill in the post from the Aussie law sent to the UK for £1750 in speeding fines when driving a rental car.

The law seems quite brutal (read:  revenue generating) over there.........

That's quite a kick in the plums!  :430:
