    more money than. me

    Hi all

    Its been fantastic rideing whether lately hasn't it. ?

    I must attract the loonies as today I had acouple of young guys  infront of me do smokys that must have taken thousands of miles off their tyres. 

    I wonder how they can afford to do it as we all know even cheap tyres arnt CHEAP. !

    I've seen it happen afew times now which is why I must somehow attracted them.

    I'm waiting for one to burn out a clutch or snap a chain. LoL I must be getting cranky in my old age.

    They are just young and stupid like we all used to be

    Ask them how the country is going and they couldnt give a hoot

    Wear out the tyres and have to buy new ones ,they will probably sell the bikes as is and buy bigger ones for more smoke

    We all get a different perspective on life as we get older and the dollars and cents mean a lot more to us

    Needless to say they will learn in time

     

    riding for fun

    Left school at 17 & straight into the workforce so as to get money & thus become that idiot.This plus a combination of low wages meant I was always broke until the penny finally dropped,had fun though.

    Worked with a 17yo many years ago who used to go through a set of retreads (in the days of cross-ply) over a weekend. Funny thing was he had 130kms to travel with the canvas showing through to get home on the Sunday night in his base XR Falcon. He said his dad bought his tyres, which was probably true.
