First topic message reminder :

What does everone think about a TRIVIA thread

Stuff that maybe of no use to most people but really handy to the others. Maybe a good DVD ,something they have made,seen ,heard of ,
cooked ,been too .Minor things that do not really warrant a post of there own.(like most of my stuff ,there beat you to it )
Like taking a tractor tyre up north to float your Bandit across a river to a football selection ,the taste of beer ,who's state is
better at Rugby League. Laughing (may be not that) .Something that may make someone else say ,"why didnt i think of that".

Good idea or just post it on "off topic discussions " or not post it at all? (feeling vulnerable now )

Well I cleaned my bandit for the first time in a long time - read cannot remember the last time the od tank was cleaned - and 2 days later it rained and.
Might have to clean the Bandit a bit more regularly to help solve the countries water shortage problems.

Maybe you should wash it  a bit closer to those fires you have over there ..........They could probably use the rain  Trivia ..... - Page 31 959052286

Embers could easily set it off.

Fires as far as I know are 4 hrs south and 4 hrs north from me. Definitely worth trying for it though.

Thanks Paul,   the problem I've got,  is the unkown.
I'm living in Brisbane at the moment, and can't get up to my block.  I've got 112 acres with shipping containers full of house hold stuff, and another with extensive tools, generator, bike parts, car parts.  Then my excavator as well.
Can only keep in contact with my neighbour at the moment, telling me of how close the fires are,  and risk.
Mmmmm.....shit happens I guess.

Trivia ..... - Page 31 Empty Start Ya Bast_rd

Post  truck on Thu 03 Jan 2019, 11:02 pm

I'd bought an old 96 KLX 650 in 2017. Long story short I did some minor MINOR work to it and the old girl refused to start the past few months. 
Supercheap had a sale so I bought a tin of Start Ya Bast_rd and got the KLX going. Very happy with my mechanical ability. 
One step out of about 999 closer to getting it registered and on the road. Brakes - tyres - blinkers - kill switch - exhaust - speedo surrounds and that will do it.

Trivia ..... - Page 31 Empty Hats off to our cattle producers.

Post  truck on Tue 23 Apr 2019, 1:53 pm

Most of us would have heard of the flooding in western QLD in February. Loss of livestock numbers vary from over 500,000 to over 900, 000, the flood waters could be seen from space stretching over 70 klm wide. I recently travelled to Western QLD, the flood waters had gone, and I can say it was sobering driving alongside barbed wire fences that I could see the flood debris caught up and I could estimate the car would have been underwater for klm at a time, flies were terrible, fences had been replaced that I could see from the road, road repairs completed, railway line repairs were almost done.
It would have been scary time for those who live out there. A bloke I was talking at Julia Creek was saying there are still cattle hanging in trees a few klm from the town when they had gotten caught in the flooding.
Their a tough breed out that way but geez how many more hits can our farmers take?

Those Western Qld floods will have a massive positive flow on to the South Australian Outback

Station owners get much needed water

The water ends up in the usually dry Lake Eyre bringing with it fish, bird life and megga $$$$ spent on tourism inb the region

If only the rest of SA could get some water I've had 11mm this year and that's a lot more than most of the state Sad
