    Might be risk averse, but that particular wager is safe as houses Good analogy. It has beer in it.
  2. Property Investment

    KEYWORDS : Almost / Soon. Bit halfhearted mate, or still convincing yourself that the sky has already fallen ? Background : FullySick bet me a six pack of excellent craft beer that the housing bubble would dramatically pop in 2017 and all ensuing chaos would occur (think mass unemployment, widespread bankruptcies, soup lines). Pretty sure we're not seeing this yet mate, but you've still got two months for armageddon!
  3. Wildwood is next Sunday (29 Oct)

    Why the Brownballs of course, on his gelati coloured Beta. This will surely turn heads!

    Cheers mate - i really think the difference between an okay edit and great one is time invested. If you're not feeling an edit, or it's too long, walk away and come back refreshed and ready to be brutal with your cutting. And spend the time on it that it needs to be awesome. There's no way around it - good edits take a reasonable amount of time investment.

    Thanks Darren! Great idea, I'm sure we could cut together a high culture version though! The soulful, jazzy tones of Norah juxtaposed with hedonistic bogans crashing dirtbikes would certainly elicit a polarising response from the masses... /artwank Can't wait for the next trip mate! I was gonna slo-mo it, but it's already kinda slo-mo! Definitely giggle worthy!

    I'm fashionably late to this ride report but it's been well handled so far! Once again many thanks to Ratfinke for being a generous host, and to Riles, Brownballs, Cujo and Kmatt for a top weekend on the bikes. Agree it was pretty refreshing to solve lifes problems over a few reds and conversation instead of the usual discussions about thin tyre carcassess and moose vs tubliss. YMMV. Here's what the ride looked like from the cockpit of a beta 350
  7. Agree with all of that. It remains to be seen what the discussion paper on forest users looks like. Is it about locking bikes and 4wds out, or about land uses like mining and logging. Too early to tell but we can all speculate!!

    Would you give that a crack Cluffie? Not sure I'd have the balls.

    Midnight. Yeah might have to watch the repeats

    Top stuff Life of Loam!
  11. The genie is out of the bottle, and it isn't going back in. One google video search later on one single forest. Even if there was a self-imposed or community code of conduct, and a banning on ZERO future content, this material will still exist and continue to grow by those ignoring such rules. It's not enforceable on any meaningful scale.
  12. I've got an exciting solution to that Marko! EXCLUSIVE preview of my upcoming video - it's a thrilling compilation of my favorite transport sections!!! Sorry, it's how i deal with things.
  13. Just to clarify SG67, this debate is probably more about community self-moderation than any environmental group pressure (although discussion stemmed from a paper assessing land management in the west - see here : LINK ) The crux of the discussion is : some "vocal leaders" in the community believe others shouldn't share pics and videos of certain things because it can be used as evidence to close down areas. I don't believe there's much weight in this, but it's quite a difficult case to argue if you're clearly doing the wrong thing. Essentially videos should only contain private property, race tracks or fire trails. Pretty dull viewing I reckon. I've asked Noods to delete my video thread here ( 12,000 views ) so as to be seen we're doing the right thing. Small steps.
  14. Spot on Geoffro. The rules around this on DrZ are generally well known, obvious and common sense - a non issue here due to great moderation. However on FB even if a video is thoughtfully edited, morons will often yell out the exact location, nearby carparks and roads. Near impossible for a mod team to manage (nor should they be expected to), however community common sense and awareness might eventually help to self moderate. It's predominately a Facebook issue. Even if thoughtful content creators went away, 100 idiots will step up behind them and do the wrong thing. I don't really have an answer for that.
  15. Thanks Mick! And I didn't even record yesterdays ride for these same issues haha. Anyway back on track with this robust discussion. What should the community do to address this? Do we even need to police it ? Should we hold a gopro amnesty and stop sharing video altogether?
