Took Symbo out for a run to Kanangra Walls near Oberon NSW,

Nice run for a day from the central coast, and was really enjoying things until the trip back when on a bend we were faced with four idiots tail gateing each other in 4wds ,way over the centre of road and at a speed that was bloody ridiculous for the road conditions, after been showered with rocks and gravel and trying to get out of the way of these pricks , it was a bit of a eye opener to what some Hoons in 4wds get up to.

Not so happy Axle.

Probably boy racers with toy ricers for weekday day cars in Sydney's south west. Let's hope they are able to grow out of this stage before they or someone they hit get hurt.

Many go through this stage and sadly it is up to us to understand this happens and will continue to happen so we need to drive defensively to be in a position to avoid the potential accident. I know this is not how it should be, but it is what it is and I would rather talk about it on here than you folk read about my demise in the local rag.

Talking more like an ol fart every day, acting like it even more so LOL!!

...'talking more like an ol fart every day..' At least you have survived long enough to be able to consider yourself 'an old fart'. Must have done something right in your youth or just plain lucky. Lots aren't. Cheers.

hahahhaha.. problem is, I am only 37 and years from being an ol' fart (at least I should be years away). But as you suggest, this attitude has kept me alive doing more than my share of driving with clowns for a living for 12 or so years.

Cheers, Trevor.

G'day Trev,

I reckon it must be the Patrol factor. Don't know whether it is the higher fuel consumption of the patrol (compared to our old Terracan)
and the associated costs of this, or something else, as I have started to slow down a bit as well.
I did a bit of a test last time I went to Monto. I went up going faster than I should of, and came back home only doing around 90-95, and sometimes hit the 100kph, but I only saved around 30mins and chewed through a lot more diesel.
I found it isn't worth the extra fuel costs or the unexpected expense of a speeding fine or the chance of coming home in a timber box.

Maybe this ol' fart status is starting early for our generation. LOL

Greg

HI Trevor, Did some crazy things in my younger days , but can't remember going around corners bloody near on the wrong side of the road like these blokes did, scary stuff when your on the receiving end.

Cheers Axle.

Up in the watagans is a nightmare with bike riders at times, Have seen a lot of close shaves up there.

Cheers Axle.

One of the problems is how we teach new drivers, bad habits are passed on like family heirlooms.

I was following a learner driver this afternoon, they stopped to change drivers ....... inside double white lines!
