I thought that's what it might have meant as I did do an acronym search, guess one needs to live over their to really understand it and it's origins.
In truth I was really referring more to the actual whole phrase as well,

its just we cant be arsed saying anything cos you Anzacs have all the best bikes

I'm not sure what the meaning of the slang, "arsed," means. It seems that by context "caught" could be synomic but then still, what does that mean really?

Basically it means I can't be bothered, which could be for a variety of reasons such as being stuck in snow drifts, of the morning after a heavy nights drinking, just feeling down etc etc

Agree with sickle44, the way the economy is right now I have been really watching what I need to spend money on. The wife can't find a job-- hell my daughters can't find a job, and I've really had have some bad luck with my cars lately. So my time is spent trying to get things fixed and still stay above the water.
Now that rain has started up here in the northwest, the most I do with my bikes is look at them sitting in the garage. ':hissy'

Still floating around. Bikes up to near 90K miles.

Alot of boards are real slow now. Boards that were extremely active are down big time.

BTW I always view New Zealand as the red headed step child to Aus. :poke :P

Just finding ways to get 500 posts. :hijack :)


Weather up here is driving me nuts. Snow snow and more snow. Although we are having a warm spell (1-2C). Much better than the 2 weeks of -10C and colder for a HIGH. Have to work on the truck this weekend IF my new muffler comes in. No heat in the truck either (core is leaking again). Put a new radio in it after the 8 yr old one died tuesday night.

Abotu a nromal winter here.

Holy Crap there Rob,

-10C as a high??? You should be so lucky. Although right now we've been getting really gourgeous weather with even 6 above for a high, but a while back we were grid locked down to -40C, with highs of -29, without wind chill. Bleeaaccchy

Really, I'm just trying to help you get your big 5, that's all. (Oops, I hadn't even read spooks post and wrote the same damned thing, so no, no plagerizm here, honest)

Put another Kenwood in. Unfortunately theres no Kenwood dealer around here that carries the Excelon line (which my old one was). Got a mid level HU. Freaking silly as controls. 4 buttons and 2 stalks control the whole thing. No preset buttons. Not the best layout IMO.

Nice thing with Kenwood, the power plug is the same from 1995 to current. Didnt have to change wires. Just pull the old one out, plug the RCA's, changer wire, antenna and power plug back in and slide it back. Finished in under 10 min.


Then again I lost count how many stereos systems I've installed at my former job. The place I used to work made special suburbans for Sony to be sold through Niemann Marcus in 1998. I installed every single one of the audio/video in these. Real PITA having to wire them up the way Sony's engineers wanted them wired. Even the guy from Sony who came down to show me how they want these wired said the engineers are idiots. Showed me how they wanted it, then showed me how to fix it after it comes back with a radio problem (and every one did). Eventually we did our own similar package for our normal conversions, but I wired them up right the first time. None came back with av issues.
