haha, well i could hook into someones system most likely if i had the urge haha, but i don't see an interest to to much other **** to deal with breaking into someones system, you know the most basic virus is only about 3 lines of coding? I know of a real estate agent that has zero security, with perfect places to sit hooked into there system, haha. personaly where with tpg 1.5m 20gb download limit for 60 per month. i guess it's what i sorta know being my dad repairs them and ive sorta growing up around them my entire life like in my bedroom alone i have 2, but i also have about 4 sets of bars 4 forks 3 frames and a bunch of other bike related parts. haha

anybody got any tips on how to majorly "p!55 off the next door neighbours? i "pipe classical music to them "things" via the shed, and every now and then pipe some german speed metal, and they dont come and knok on my door, but at least their yappy dog shuts the hell up!, what barks and barks till bot midnite, outside my 3 yo's bedroom...i, we have been round there 4 times, in 3 half months, they say,,, "thats how he has always been, and nobody has ever complained" and then we get, "we dont want this to become an issue?? what the? it is!!... wondering if council will do anything, or if our dogs will be baited..by them.. i havent shot for awile... any ideas?
cheers brian
COASTY
Brian. My wife worked in the dog section at our council up here. You have to complain a few times. If their dog won't shut up, they'll take him away. It's a noise complaint and the council has to address it.
Give them a call and find out how your council works. Check the council's website too. Info should be on there.

I wish my neighbours would play German speed metal! I like it and maybe my kids will shut up! lol

If they've got a tin roof, go catch a cane toad and tie a peice of fishing line to each leg...with a sinker attached to each peice of fishin line. Then toss the toad on their roof. The toad will hop around all night trying to get down...and from inside the house it sounds like some mongrell rocking the roof. When they go outside to investigate...there's no one there. The toad will keep moving and draging those dam sinkers all over the roof untill he gets up there and removes it. The toad will not survive the heat of the sun the next day.
HowardinOz
Wait till they're out, jump the fence and 'pat' the dog!

Howard
rsrichie
sorry to sound all soft and stuff, but the dog shouldnt suffer, it only does what it has been allowed to do by its owners (unless its mental or whatever is "pc" for mental) So please take it out on the owners but be smart about it so your actions dont repocus on the Poor untrained neglected dog.
dugga
I agree with richie - all dogs bark for a reason, probably boredom in this case. There are various collars available that deliver a mild electric shock or a noxious spray whenever the dog barks. The dog soon figures out barking is not a wise idea. Depending on your council the neighbours may be forced to do this or face losing the dog or cop a hefty fine.
QuicksilverBMX
I was told by the local BMX authourity that sidehacks were banned from racing?
Unless it wasnt a race and just a practice run?

I wanted to run a sidehack here and they said they were banned from competetive racing.
Mattblack
It's still a class in the list of classes- if that makes sence, here in NSW. There is alot of classes listed but they just don't offer them on the entries is what I am told. They is rules and regs some where in the rule book.
meatpie
Well i'm back guys!!! It was the longest couple of months of my life!!! I'm not too far away from showin ya's the couple of build's that i've been concentrating on over since the last time that i was on.... My Quad is now white/blue instead of black/silver.... I haven't even picked it up from Roberto's yet but i have no doubt that it will be AAA+++ . Has anyone here ever restored Motomags???? 2 weeks ago i recieved some from the states and they are in vgc.... They just need some "elbow grease"???? does anyone know who stocks this ???? Heh Heh They will be going on the Jag..... It was going to be a black/gold build (with nos Ukai's,nos DX hubs,nos gold spokes & nipples,nos DX lever, reannoed MaxiCross cranks & nos gold Skyway tuff pedals but since i got the Motomags i've changed my mind and gone for the full old school look with none of that s**t.... back to a snowflake sprocket & rat traps.... I just hate to ride with coaster brakes!! So i suppose that it's a good thing that it will end up a carpet queen like my other Jag... Does anyone know when they stopped putting Ashtabula forks on these bikes???
You can tell that i haven't been around 4 a while as this is the longest post that i've ever done ! Hope to catch up with all of you guys very soon in NSW!!

v8ute
hey meatpie, a mate of mine just got a set of motomags HPC coated, its the stuff they coat extractors and manifolds with to keep the heat down, they came up real nice, looks like a shinier factory finish, ask wazza we seen them yesterday
v8ute
hey redlineoz, i was just reading about the dog problem, just a tip, the owner isnt going to do anything if it aint bothering them so thats plan A out the window.
plan B aint gonna work because the councils dont care, they work for the council, extended lunch breaks and weekends, not many of them do their job right.

i always like plan C, dont get me wrong gus, my dog is my best mate, anybody touches him and they will stare down the barrel of a shotgun.

PLAN C
when the neighbours arent home, OPEN THE GATE AND LET IT OUT!!!
that way if it is always in the yard it will probably run off or maybe even worse, but i dont want to think about that.
and it will cost the neighbours money to get it from the pound or even a fine.

just another option bud
v8ute
at least if it runs off you might get a week of piece and quiet

and i spelt guys wrong too (gus)
v8ute
hey howard, come and jump the fence and pat my dog, i dont think the oragami skills will help ya bud, lol
v8ute
so how many guys here have sidehacks, i have supermaxcrmos(trevs) in my garage
Dirtboy
Mattblack with his pre race prediction



Everyone loved the sidehack race!! They looked good, the race was entertaining and they performed fine on a 'very' modern track! Was it nice to win thr first hack race in NSW in almost 15yrs RC?

Hacks look really cool!
Wow, sure haven't seen anything like that in a long time!
Looks like you all had fun.

V8, mate of mine thought he had a big, bad dog (Rhodesian Ridgeback) until someone broke into his house whilst the dog was home.
Never guess what was the only thing they stole......


The Dog!!!

Someone found the dog a couple of weeks later tied up in a wreckers yard!
Mattblack
The hack race was fun but I am thinking of retiring now as the undisputed champion lol

I think I will make another 1 or 2. Hey I think I will look for someone else to pedal lol
Jarvi
MB, what sort of gearing were you running on it? Always looks like hard work when I see photos of 'hacks racing.
OldSkoolRoy
1985-86' side hacks.


Mattblack
46/14

I can't remember what it was BITD. I tried 43/16 it was bad but was good either. The swinger hadn't riden one before and didn't push that much. Well didn't feel like it.
Jarvi
I thought an easier gearing would have been better. 46/14 is pretty darn tall.
Mattblack
Sorry the 46/14 was I ran the 43/16
v8ute
cool hack pics guys, somebody has to get them back in action

hey howard, lol, yeah i have heard stories like that happening, my dog looks big and tuff but wouldnt hurt anything,lol, he is the biggest sook but people get scared of his muscles and his mean look, the only way he would hurt anybody is if they couldnt swim cos he would lick you to death.
Mattblack
V8 thats what we are doing up here in NSW, we had 3 on the gate and another 1 didn't turn up because they wanted to paint it complete.
v8ute
yeah thats cool MB, keep it going bud, get those hacks back on the track
Jarvi
Yeah V8 having seen your dog I don't think I'd try and grab something out of the back of the ute. He seemed like he wanted to play rather than fight though.
v8ute
yeah looks nasty but just a big softy, he loves everybody, even strangers, lol
v8ute
very quiet here again tonight
HowardinOz
Funny, this dog was (it had to be destroyed due to some cancer like disease) nasty! Bit everyone, including their own kids!
I'm definately not a fan of dogs, had one as a kid but I prefer cats....can't imagine a rotty or ridgeback sitting on my lap while I'm drinking a coffee!

KOSY-MOTO
OAKY back to the hacks/ pitbikes.. can someone tell me why they don't race them anymore? or are they just "NOW" a show only.. no comps?
dugga
pit bikes still get raced on occasion.... track attack this year is running pit bikes - no hacks though
broke L345
Just a vote for dogs here, I can't see you being able to do this to a couple of cats. Also, where esle would you find such cute protection for your valued bikes?

broke L345
NICE!!!

did you have to sell your car to fund them? Hows your hand, when are you on the track again?
Jarvi
Still got the car. The master was from Chip and a good price, the sport was originally blue and after a trip to Roberto it is now white. After powdercoating and sticker set (from Chip) they probably came out about the same.

Back racing soon and will most likely in a couple of weeks, or whenever the next meeting at Eastfield is coming up.
dugga
mmmmm nice haros James... meeting coming up on september 24th at eastfield - you racing 20" or cruiser or both?
Jarvi
Will be just the cruiser. Still don't have a 20" that would be race worthy. Besides, the lungs might not let me do more than one class.
dugga
I don't have a body that's race worthy. I'm hoping they'll start wheelchair class...no need to balance on the gate and there's room for an oxygen bottle and a morphine drip
broke L345
watch out for the new third strait, the step up and table look pretty close together. just ask Vdad ouch! (sorry Mark)
