Good one Pete, although I have been to the dry lakes races and I hardly think that Mt Ive is on the Eyre Peninsula.

Sorry Sarge but Roosters don't lay eggs.

Isn't it an egg in a basket under the chook, attached to the fence, just asking.



At my age " getting lucky" is remembering what I came in the room for ;)

Technically its just a rock, but your story may indeed hold some truth but then it wouldn't have as many points to use "R" in my story if I call it a chicken.

Hi All found this one on our club ride today Sunday 24th, as you leave Greenthorpe heading to Young Via Monteagle it's on the right, thankfully the owner has the sense to bolt it down as it's been beautifully made. Cheers Candywine.   :thumbs

Well clearly Biggles is on one side pushing his bike through and then running around and grabbing it, and rushing it back to the other side and pushing it through again...

I caught this beauty yesterday on the way home from Inverell.

Not sure why they put a saddle on it, but it is certainly a strange letterbox!

New game folks...


Post a pic of your ST in front of one of those funky/austentacious letterboxes that we all see on our travels and post it here. Bike MUST be in pic. Don't forget to name the town/location/state for us.


I'll kick off...


5 clicks West of Kilcoy, Qld....
