AussieMuscle would probably take the cake on that one I think. Did his back recently and probably off to the retirement village soon.
26 here. 27 in 4 months. Fug i'll be late twenties now.
>[spoiler]and with nothing to show for it[/spoiler]
M8 stop swimming down that river in Egypt. We all know you're a a junkie projecting your self-loathing onto people in the middle of the night. Your--being a complete loser is showing and only you can fix it.
Good luck anon on your journey to rehabilitation and redemption.
Any opinions on the GW250 INAZUMA and Honda CBF250 ?
How does it stack up tp the VTR250 ?
Any recommendations for cheap 250cc naked road bikes that i can buy 2nd hand? I fucking hate the look of poofter sports bikes and their riding pos.
Ausfag if it helps
New blinkers are the cleanest shiniest thing on the bike now.
Have to buy more shit to clean it up.
Part time lurker here. Can someone explain this Jimmy meme? Also thoughts on the IS-F? Looking to get a tasty V8 just something a little less common.
Looking to crash my problem car and get the insurance to secure the finance. How does Justcar pay when it comes to cars crashing into trees due to power steering belt falling off? Mine has come off AGAIN after multiple mechanic trips.
I bought a kangaroo and would like to drive it without a license. I hear many china people drive in australia.
How to roo with no card?
Jimmy is/was a trip from /mu/ (also a meme there apparently) who was most known for owning a string of bad cars, including a KFC spec half-riced automagic SW20 MR2, 'stanced' E38 523i and culminating in a blue "Holden" Astra convertible, his self-confessed favourite of the bunch.
He seemed like a nice enough guy imo, certainly not deserving of being doxxed multiple times by Falcunt.
He stopped posting with his trip after he lost his license for three (I think, maybe it was six) months, however it has been confirmed he posts elsewhere as Anon, posting about installing a sound system in the Astra on another board (/adv/? Can't remember) and is generally though he posts in the /dat/ as anon, perpetuating the "JIMMY IS KILL" meme.
He is a known lover of KFC.
>in serious need of money
>only thing left to do is
>sell my car or start sucking dicks
what do /dat/ ? I can sell my shit box for at least 5k which would give me enough for the shit I need to pay.. if I got a little over 6k I could buy a real shitty shit box to put around in...
fuck /dat/ I don't know what to do
Dog man, dog.
The best thing about dawgs is when you get home after a good/mediocre/shit day and they don't give a fuck, just unconditionally happy to see you. Nothing beats big dog cuddles from big dogs.
I roll around with my GSD in the codriver seat. He loves to just watch things as we drive along and stick his nose in the aircon vent for that cool flow. The labrador not so much, he is mega fat and affectionate while shedding like crazy so he ruins interiors.
Vote 1 for dogdog.
True that. I didn't even want a GSD when we got him, I wanted to get a pup from the pound. Now I don't think I'll ever get another breed hey, the bond is just insane. A few mates now have sheppies that all but one are related in one way or another to my shep and they are converts as well.
Worst dog to help work on cars though. Non stop trip hazard.
Go to your local pound or rescue center, find something that you want and take it.
>Worst dog to help work on cars though. Non stop trip hazard.
Mate, my dog is a blind and deaf fox terrier, all I do is trip over the poor guy.
And if you can grab two. I've had woofs all my life and I will never have a solo animal again. Some dogs and breeds prefer the solitude but I've never experienced that.
Woke up this morning to both the shep and the lab jumping up on the bed for a snooze with the wife and I. The lab just wants to be on the bed and close to us but the shep needs to be closer than close. He jumps in and grabs a pillow for a good snuggle up.
Sorry to hear about your foxie. At least mine are easier to see before you trip!
I have a King Charles Cavalier. OMFG the cutest animal in existence.
He snuggles up like a cat sometimes but only sometimes when he wants to not be ignored. When he was a pup though... shit... he totally behaved like a cat with the snuggling and so on
Oh man, it got worse driving from Melbourne to Wagga, went through a big ass storm between Melbourne and Seymour, so much rain I couldn't see anything further than 50 metres in front of me. It was so heavy that the car was constantly hydroplaning and getting real squirrely at 100km/h, ended up having to stop and wait it out for a bit.
And then it fucking rained ALL DAY in Sydney yesterday, while I'm trying to walk everywhere.
Oi, what's got a better chassis? VZ commo or BA falcon?
there isn't anything much comfier than driving at night on highways m8
>when australians near me try to pull off that generic americansed accent
>none of them into cars
Posted this in the last thread.
It's up on DCA channel.
To be honest, with all that oil on the road it could have happened to anyone.
The femanon sustained minor injuries to her right side, most of what looked to be glass cuts to her arm as the side window smashed.
Also i'm the offsider, not the driver.
We rushed over and she was in quite a bit of shock. The driver calmed her down and told her not to move. I grabbed a towel from the truck to protect her from the rain.
When the cops showed up we explained what happened and asked if they wanted to see the footage, but they weren't interested as only one vehicle was involved.
They are great sleepers.
Do you daily it? Keep the stock wheels imo, cover the intercooler up and cops won't give you a second look, unless you boost it near them.
The newer galants/legnums are the same. I'm not on my P's anymore but even still i've never had any attention from the cops in the 18+ months i've owned it.
>>cat springs to mind for cuddles
cats usually dont like cuddles, especially with males, takes a long time to build a certain trust but even then depending on the cat it won't want to be cuddled or touched or stuff like that, they're pretty loner animals
dogs crave for your affection though but can be pretty hyper about it
you need to give it attention and train it properly or your dog will be shit
take the time and do it right, and you'll have a trusted companion for a long time
>King Charles Cavalier
oi u fuckin whoite dog i need sum munee for da bus ok brudda?
>cats usually dont like cuddles, especially with males, takes a long time to build a certain trust but even then depending on the cat it won't want to be cuddled or touched or stuff like that, they're pretty loner animals
My cat loves attention, you can scratch behind his ears and his cheek all day long, loves it. Just doesn't really like being picked up. Will sit on your lap too.
Have had another cat in the past that you could pick up endlessly and it would give no fucks though.
At least I don't know what cats really behave like since I've never owned one, faggot
>finally decide to buy GTA V for PC

Corrupt disc? Can't think of anything else it could be.
Gonna try manually installing Direct X then attempting to install it for the third time tomorrow.
Polite sage because not particularly /o/ related.
Oh man, that'd be the icing on the cake right there. Especially considering you would have been fuming after the new car decided to accidentally itself.
Getting squirrelly at 100 must have been pretty hairy, it's terrifying enough on the bike.
seconding (ha) this, When I was back in school my family got two Boxer puppy siblings and we've never looked back. One passed away last year so we replaced him with a bull terrier x Staffy who I suspect of being a speed addict due to his bursts of energy lasting about an hour before a short sleep then back into it. Love the crazy fucker to bits though.
>tfw grandfather's last words to me was "I'm proud of you for getting into that school"
>6 months later haven't been for 3 weeks since anxiety
>skip a few years and I'm a high school dropout
Still haunts me to this day
>Especially considering you would have been fuming after the new car decided to accidentally itself.
Awww, sorta. Wasn't really angry, I actually had a bit of a laugh about it with the towie and the guys at Top Secret. Felt pretty dejected more than anything else waiting at the airport and on the plane home though.
How do bikes go with standing water on the road? Do they just sorta "cut through" it, or would you lose it if there was a lot of it?
>GTA V is complete shit
I enjoy it.
>tafe is useful while uni is not
keep telling yourself that cunt
Maaate, $77 is too much for GTA5, it's like 2 or 3 years old now.
Still a good game, i'm guessing your internet is too shit to download it off steam?
>How do bikes go with standing water on the road? Do they just sorta "cut through" it, or would you lose it if there was a lot of it?
Can be pretty scary since they're much lighter than cars and only 2 points of grip. Not so bad if you have a bigger bike with a nice set of thicker wheels. Pretty easy to aquaplane if you're not focusing. Best to clutch in a little if you go through a big sketchy puddle just so there's no chance of the rear slipping out due to either too much/little gas. And don't ever want to try move the steering wheel otherwise you're going to go down and eat shit.
And you keep telling yourself that m8. If your doing a commerce degree maybe but science and engineering... no chance.
I don't regret it though...it teaches you a lot about living life and I don't wast any money on cars or anything mechanical. Just fix it myself.
Though to be honest a lot of those skills were self taught.
I enjoyed it on a mate's Xbone, and there should be a decent modding community by now so more shit to fuck around with in singleplayer.
Fuck shark cards or whatever they're called though.
Definitely better to laugh than rage man. I imagine it's probably not the first time it's happened at Top Secret, either.
At least you didn't spend 30k on a Black Edition 86, only to have it burn to the ground from a dodgy stereo install or something dumb like that.
>How do bikes go with standing water on the road? Do they just sorta "cut through" it, or would you lose it if there was a lot of it?
Depends how much water is on the road, if there's a little bit you'll probably just cut through it but I imagine it wouldn't take much to overwhelm the tiny contact patch, especially if you're running Pirelli Pilot S20 EVO Super-Dooper Diablo Corsa Demon Sports RRR SP semi-slicks on the road for that crazy grip while cornering hard, yo.
And once that happens shit goes down, usually literally.
>i'm guessing your internet is too shit to download it off steam?
Bingo. 5/1 and 30gb data allowance a month to work with. It would take literally three months to download the game, let alone any patches it would need.
$77 is way too much, I agree. I missed out on the Steam sale but I'm pretty sure it worked out to be not that much cheaper than EB anyway, and post-sale price was AUD$105.
>tfw mates have some pissing contest about his much of a gta fan they are, talking anout vice coty and stuff
>they all get smacked down because I played original gta at my cousins house heaps
same thing with fallout basically
Gents, what is the legality of riding a pushie on the foot path? There aren't many bike lanes in Wagga and young blokes in utes and four wheel drives tend to like making sport of people riding pushies on the road.
Brought my bike up from Tassie a couple of days ago and figured that it would be awesome for saving money on petrol and shit if I could ride to work.
Yeah, cant watch youtube and barely loads pages but can still torrent at max (750kB/s).
Shits fucked, ctr-F5 on this page takes 10 seconds to complete. Full 700 post threads on /vg/ are worse
GTA V while not complete shit, please go back to /v/ with those opinions, just doesnt feel right.
Go play GTA IV on PC for ten minutes, its immersive as fuck, you actually feel like youre rolling through the streets and walking through the park etc. Go do the same in GTA V, it doesnt feel right. Hell, even GTA SA is more immersive in that regard.
man, I don't know if it just aged badly but san andreas is shit. dl'd on steam and the controls are fucked, handling is shit, camera is never at the right spot and it's too AYY YO NIGGGGAAAA
I have nothing of value to contribute to this thread just like 90% of the other cunts posting here.
So I bought a 95 Mazda 121 for 1800 dollarydoos with 106k kms on the clock.
Was regularly serviced, has had the timing changed, oil was also apparently changed regularly, suspension and tires were also replaced recently.
How did I do /dat/?
wait til she's out
say "yeah mum i'm just gonna take it round the block to make sure it's all working fine, don't worry brah"
wait til your sik mate comes round and take it to some carpark
noice. jags are great for forcing you to take a steep learning curve and for destroying your wallet
Yeah thats what turned me off it, fucking looked amazing, loved every angle of it until the hood went up and then it was just 'holy fuck', fucking shit everywhere.
Well way back then I had fuck all knowledge on cars are far as mechanical work, I had grown up fixing up and selling bikes with Dad so it was all small engine knowledge, two stroke rebuilds fucking eyes closed work, big bore road bikes a little more complex back then for me. But that was from maybe 6 years old to 17 fixing bikes with Dad in the shed.
Wasn't interested in cars at all then, kinda why buy a car when its slow as fuck compared to a bike mentality.
>Well way back then I had fuck all knowledge on cars are far as mechanical work
if you worked on bikes then at least you had something
didn't know what a torque wrench was for when I got mine
I had knowledge on engines since everything is fairly similar, fuel and air in, fun and noise comes out but the differences in drivetrain and suspension had me confused.
>weirder shit than torque bars going on here
Doing the points on the bike tomorrow if I can find a DIY paper gasket kit
Pretty much this.
>German "engineered" GM product
>convertibles gonna convert, I mean leak
On the plus side it was styled by Bertone or Pininfarina or one of those other Italian blokes who are good with a pencil.
Oh, and they came with a turbo model, get one of those if you must.
Enjoy your following
Leaking rocker covers
Combined oil/coolant block failures
Shift cable failure
Roof folding linkage failures
Roof motor failures
Peeling steering wheel
Rear wheel bearing failures
Leaking power steering rack ends
CV boots cracking
Lower ball joint failures
Strut top bearings knocking
Front strut failures
[Citation is being a mechanic and working on Astras for years with these being common enough problems I know them off the top of my head.]
I wouldn't take one for free, its #2 on my worst cars I've ever dealt with list.
Ah yes Barrel and Key Transponder failures
Door lock actuator failures and door handles snapping off in your hand.
I could could think of more of the uncommon ones but I shouldn't have to.
#1 Holden Captiva, any series, any year
Worst car ever made, Fords exploding Pinto has nothing on it because at least the Pinto has the common decency to burn you to death while the Captive wont kill you physically but will destroy your soul with a easy 16 Grand worth of repairs that all but one Captiva I have ever seen needed.
Become a mechanic, you will go insane.
Hey, atleast thats only the left side end tank burst, there isn't any engine oil from the timing cover/upper and lower sump. Transmission fluid from where the 4 or five bolts that hold the diff in place have vibrate loose and smashed a fucking hole in the gearbox. It also isn't currently on fire due to the fact Holden didnt find it nesscary to cover the starter motor main positive cable with a rubber sheild. So a small bracket that also vibrates loose falls on it, bridging it to the block.
The poorly deisgned PCV valve hasn't feed oil into the turbo, leaking out of the intake pipe down onto the exhaust.
how the fuck do they sell these things?
I used to work at a rental car company that had a lot of gm fleet cars
they were all awful, awful cars, even without considering the notorious reliability
Dumb people who bought them to start with because they are great on paper plus Holdens marketing budget and for the first 100km they drive ok.
THEN dumber people bought them after not researching before a purchase at all.
I've never met a Holden Captiva owner who wasn't a fucking moron. The highest KM's one I've ever seen that didn't have the mass reseal and gear box job done was around 55,000KM and the lowest was 24KM....Twenty Four.
oi mate, is it true that territories are ass ti work on/buy parts for?
I heard that rack boots cost 400 bucks or something stupid
Yeah he bought it new with the close-ratio racing four-speed option. First has no synchro so it's a cunt of a thing to drive.
This isn't his, but you get the idea.
I've heard REALLY bad things about KFC in China.
>Become a mechanic, you will go insane.
>implying my XJ hasnt already driven me insane
>implying the falconius and crapsidas wherent even worse
At least the Jeep kept going the other cars kept dying.
At least GM being reliable for the most part is not a MEME its true
At least it's cars m8
I'm in a tier 1 city so heath standard are enforced for a foreign chain at least.
If I was in some bumfuck town in the middle of nowhere i'd be alot more worried
Got my parts off suzuki finally, bike is back together.
Wanna ride? Meet you tomorrow morning at 437 Hellawell Rd, Sunnybank Hills. Like we discussed in another thread. Then we will head off to Mt Mee legal trails, I'm sure the Z900 will be fine.
Mate I don't need more Astras on the road, anything I can do to stop it. Atleast I won't ever have to touch one at my current employer.
I dream of a day where they last known one in existance catches fire.
>go to KFC
>get the meal with the most original recipe pieces
>all of them are those tiny wings that are all bone and no meat
>chink kfc uses thigh meat instead of breast meat for everything
ew that brown shitty meat. i had kfc today but i never get the originalr ecipe always brown and soggy.
boneless ones liek zinger or twister meals thats it not the chicken on its own
wtf idiot dont pay 200 dollars for 25kg of weights.
buy two dumbbells and free weights in different sizes.
I bought over 200kg for 350. just google weight sales in your area. dont go to sportsco or any big chain place they are shit quality and overpriced by the kg
oh and buy yourself a bench and dumbbell as well if you have room
my home gym cost 550 with over 200kg in weights and I can do everything in it. Free weights are the best dont use shitty machines and pay like 300 a year for a gym
As an example goto: https://transact.ppsr.gov.au/ppsr/SearchResultRetrieve?v=Search&si=17
and put this search number in: 183449264067
That was for a boxtrailer but a car/boat/bike will give the same results
I tried finding the VIN through the VRE, however, the vanity plates the car had on didn't show up as being registered. I can't VIN search the car until tomorrow. Should I be concerned that the plates don't show up in the VRE search?
Also, thanks for covering how to use it.
>Should I be concerned that the plates don't show up in the VRE search?
I would be, seems rather odd. Go have a look at it and perform a VIN search there on your phone. It's not hard to do, but you do need a Visa/Mastercard to do the search online.
If the VIN shows up clean and the car checks out you shouldn't have any problems, but that rego not showing up is a small concern.
What could it indicate? When I go on Vicroads website to register custom plates, it says the name is taken, but the VRE has nothing at all. I've never faced anything like the before
>What could it indicate?
Maybe it is actually an undercover police vehicle, part of the Tracey Grimshaw Hoon Patrol.
In QLD if you search a police number plate it shows up as no record.
Yikes, well as long as I can legally obtain the car, I'm fine. As for the guys age, he only sounds young. The carsales thing said the car has been owned since 1996 by the same person. We'll see whether that's a lie tomorrow.
Don'tworry about it. Im only geeing you up.
Just ask about the rego not showing and do the PPSR check. Also the PPSR check cost is actually $3.40.
Dont bother with the other ones that want to charge 20 bucks as they get the same info from ppsr and nothing more.
>Dont bother with the other ones that want to charge 20 bucks as they get the same info from ppsr and nothing more.
Oh sorry, I actually lied. I dont think the PPSR check shows the odometer history.
If you want that info you will have to pay the extra from a different site.
I have never bothered with odo check. You can usually tell just by the wear and tear of the floor, seats, door sils and the condition of the bushes etc if it has been wound back
