maybe not favourites with JT out for the year...  :'(

although, it does set up the QLD 'do it for JT' and 'nobody believes we can win' narratives for game 3...

maybe a QLD ambush coming... ?  8)
Qld will struggle without JT, add to that Boyd is out also and that's 4 big name players out this year (Scott and Inglis also). Will be interesting to see who fills the halves for Qld with Milford gone aswell, maybe Morgan will start at 6 with Cronk. NSW are the favourites for the win, they just need to play as they did in game one and the first half of game 2

Just to clear up a small thing, speed cameras on side of the road are operated by sub-contractors, not by members.
so you're saying they are to lazy to even do that now? ;D ;D

I cant believe people steal these things that often.. I've heard of it in caravan parks...  but not in the real world.

Yep once in a motel in Mt Isa the other I think it was at the Bunnings car park in Townsville

NSW and VIC made it much harder though. Stat write offs are really hard to re-register.

It really goes against the governments mantra of reducing waste and recycling as you are throwing away something, just because it is cosmetically damaged. I don't like it either as I hate waste, all the energy and resources that have gone into building it, just so it can be scrapped and someone can make another one >:(

That one might be OK though, you would need the VIN and check that it isn't written off though. The DR isn't really a good option for a track bike, but would be a good motor for a buggy ;D

I did try going "camo" in the snow, but had a issue with shrinkage............... ;D

Seriously though, we love winter camping.
Just rug up and make sure you have good thermal gear and a good quality sleeping bag.

We also love our little "bum warmers" around the fire. A frypan or cast iron pot with a shovel of coals in it. Lasts ages and keeps you warm.
Some friends use heat beads, but I don't really like the smell.

Have a go, if you don't like it, don't do it again.

Best wishes,
Brian

It may not be the same not being a vehicle but I went through the purchase of an A Van that was a re-registerable write off in Brisbane
It was a pretty painless and not expensive process. just carried out the structural work and had to take it to the inspectors who looked it over pretty well, then signed it off.
Cheers

Anyone been through it? Was thinking of buying a damaged bike and rebuilding it for a project in teh shed for something to do...
eg: if you could get this for around a 1000-1500 it would be good value.

Sounds far too much like hard work and rules written by a desk jockey

I can understand some of it to stop rebirthing etc, but FFS, there are so many good machines out there with just damaged fairings or bolt on bits that could be fixed easily...
