  1. Been lurking on here for about a year now so reckon it's about time I started posting lol Been missing TV from home so igned up to Brit TV the past 4 months & find them really good. Free 25 minute preview from here: UK TV Abroad 50+ Sky channels on iPad, iPhone & PC & you can access all these services at the one time for the flat fee of a tenner so reckon it's a really good deal. Curious to check out any alternatives so I can change to another provider of a similar (even cheaper, if poss - i'm a scabby sort lol) service if anyone has any better suggestions worth mentioning? Any replies greatly appreciated. & hi to all! :smile:

    kids dirt bike

    Can I ship my sons dirt bike (Yamaha PW50). We have not owned it for more than 12 months but it an off road bike (no lights/indicators) so does it matter how long I have owned it? It is not subject to import duty as far as I can see. The website also says I need a import approval to bring in a motorized scooter - surely not for a kids electric scooter? Any advice would be appreciated
  3. We are trying to decide what to take and what to leave and wondered if anyone has shipped kids dirt bikes over?? How thoroughly do they have to cleaned?? Did you get any hassle from customs the other end??

    dirt bikes

    Moving to Perth in Jan 09.I have a childs and adult moto cross (dirt) bikes can i put these in the container for shipping with are houshold goods or do i need special paper work/permissions Thanks in advance Andy (Middleton,Manchester)
  5. Ok. as many of you will know, we are plagued with dirt bikers and quad bikers:arghh:. We have tried everything - Police, Council, EHO, Queensland Transport, but no-one is interested. Some of these are kids in their own gardens behind ours , others are 10 years old to adult, riding illegal, unregistered, uninsured unroadworthy bikes on the streets in Townsville every day, to-ing and fro-ing to their little patch of bush (one happens to be a beautiful area behind our house.) We cannot walk our dog there, the noise is horrendous, but I DO understand that this is Ozzie culture. And when one of them gets killed (3 this week), they are canonised. What is that all about ??? I just do not understand. I have given up, and just use the many sets of earplugs I have - which I then frequently forget to take out so I end up sounding deaf as well as mad. Interested to know if anone else has this problem. Is anyone else suffering this problem, cos I reckon it affects all rural areas. Oh and what are the burnouts all about - does it not cost $600 dollars to replace a set of tyres????? ps my revenge is full blast Barry Manilow when they are having a barbie. A bot of noise pollution of my own (sorry - secret Barry fan..................don't hit me)

    Dirt cheap motoring

    OK . . . . you've lobbed up on Australia's shores and you need a set of wheels to get you and/or the family mobile. You can think English / Scots / Welsh / Irish on this one . . . . .and pay through the nose for your vehicle and weekly motoring costs . . . . . OR you can do what loads of Australians do! Firstly, if you buy from a second hand car yard, you pay an extra 10% G.S.T. on the vehicle price. If the car is worth $20,000 you part with $22,000 worth of your hard earnt cash. If you buy brand new, you pay a "dealer delivery fee" of $1,300 to $1,600 depending on which State you buy in. . . . on top of your brand new car price, plus of course the 10% G.S.T. OK . . . how do you get around this one??? The State governments around Australia buy fleets of vehicles at bargain basement prices and sell them before the 3 year warranty is over. If you trot along to any State gov't auction, you'll see '00's of cars, 4WDs, trucks etc. going for a good bid. . . . no 10% G.S.T. You can get a perfectly good 2 yr old car with about 30,000 kms (18,000 miles) on the clock for about half price. If there's anything at all wrong with the vehicle in the 6 to 12 months you're driving it around before the 3 years warranty period expires, you simply drive it to the local dealer, toss the car keys on the desk and say "fix it!". They'll call you once it's done . . . . free of charge. Check out the South Australian gov't auction website for a look. Click on "Prices" to get an idea of what vehicles over the past eight weeks have sold for, along with all their relevant info such as mileage, etc. http://www.auctions.sa.gov.au Being a government vehicle, they are all regularly serviced and maintained . . . . no skipping oil changes here! Secondly . . . . would you sooner pay $1.30 (52p) for a litre OR 55c (22p) a litre?? Think about it . . . . this isn't a trick question. I run a vehicle on L.P.G. costing 55c a litre. . . . have done so now for many a year. About 30% of vehicles on South Australian roads run on L.P.G. How do I know that?? Because you have a special sticker put on your number plate back and front when L.P.G. is fitted, in case of an accident and the fire brigade or police need to know what danger is involved in dealing with your vehicle. About 30% of number plates in Adelaide have these stickers on them. They are on all kinds of cars and 4WDs. . . . .and they fill up at about half the cost of a petrol car / 4WD Those drivers are smiling all the way to the bank each time they fill up over the course of that vehicle's lifetime. The motto is, unless you settling in a remote Outback township without an L.P.G. filling staion nearby, then think about getting hold of a vehicle that is "dedicated" to run on L.P.G. South Australia has L.P.G. reserves in the north of the State estimated to last the next seventy years at current demand . . . . no shortage of fuel on the world market will stop you from getting to work, etc.!!! . . . . . just my humble advice after living 33 years in Australia. You can either buy a petrol car . . . . like in the U.K. . . . . or buy L.P.G. like loads of Aussies who have spare cash in the back pocket for an extra carton of beer or game of golf! It's your money.
