Re: Backline hire Tweed Heads

My old band got back to me. I thought their gig was in early June, but It's not until early July and they will have backline supplied by the club. If your gig is at the Twin Towns club, maybe enquire if they can supply you guys as well? Otherwise, there are two Brisbane based companies that will ser...

Re: Backline hire Tweed Heads

One of my old bands from Sydney just did a gig there. I'll see if I can find out what they did about backline and let you know.

Re: NBD - but it's not a bass!

Well when I was picking the bike up after it's service today, I bumped into someone who owns a shop around the corner from mine. He was trading in a Sportsbike for a Suzuki Boulevard cruiser - 1800cc's. He's pretty sure it won't be as fast as his 1200cc, 2 cylinders Vs 4.

Re: NBD - but it's not a bass!

Cool Pete! That's an insane amount of cc's for a bike! It is but fairly common in the big v twin cruisers these days. Most Japanese cruisers are around that including my Yamaha at 1900cc although Triumph take the cake at 2300cc with the Rocket 3! It's more powerful than Harley's biggest engine, tha...

Re: NBD - but it's not a bass!

glad to read a post of yours where you're not getting screwed over, ripped off or had some other thing go wrong. What, like maybe parking it outside my shop and not engaging the side stand properly. Yep, that actually happened! But at least this time I have no-one to blame but myself. But it shows ...

I'd give my left nut to own one of those...... oops, sorry! :ninja:

Seriously though, enjoy it Pete.... you deserve it.
Nice try, wrong nut :) I thought the bike was pulling right at first, but it turns out I just had to adjust my seating position.

Re: NBD - but it's not a bass!

Doing some research on Victory motorcycles... Their parent company is Polaris Industries, famous producer of snowmobiles... I used to have a 1973 Polaris Charger 630cc 2-stroke snowmobile. It was built like a tank and you couldn't break it... Not much use for snowmobiles here in Australia :D ... bu...

Re: NBD - but it's not a bass!

Nice one Pete. I'll let you know if I'm "two-wheeling" up your way sometime. You're on! Ditto if I'm ever in Brissy. I actually bought it from an ex- Bandito near the Glasshouse Mountains. So it was a 3 hour ride home straight up. Loved it! It's a great feeling cruising at 110km with the engine bar...

Holy molly, look at the size of that rear tire! Cangratulations Pete.
That fat rear tyre helps get all that power down to the ground. That's good. But it also makes it less maneuverable. Not ideal, but manageable :)

New Bike Day! https://i.imgur.com/uOzpKoF.jpg https://i.imgur.com/MgRP7wN.jpg https://i.imgur.com/KDgCjEw.jpg It's been a long time between bikes, 12 years in fact. Then I rode a very similar bike to this while I was in Sydney recently. My friends bike is a Victory Gunner. This is a Victory Hammer (...

Re: Help me fix my window demister!

OK so 3 weeks since being ready to pay for the foil, I've still not been told how to do so. I lost my temper and cancelled the order by email. Next day, I get an apology and instructions for payment minus the silly demands for financial statements etc. That's good. I also finally got an explanation ...

Re: Amp for Country?

When I think about which genres of music place particular demands on your equipment, Country is one of the easier styles to accommodate. As long as it's fairly clean and can hit moderately loud SPL, I would have thought most amps would be able to get in the ballpark. Case in point, my friend plays w...
