A quick explaination of the maroon thing, for the overseas lads.
New South Wales and Queensland Quearslanders play a 'state of origin' football series each year.
This year it was one all, with the decider played last night at Lang park in Brisvagas.
The Quearslanders wear maroon. The cockroaches mighty NSW wear blue.
Musky lives in NSW and is a cockroach Mighty Blue.
Queensland has won the series for the last thousand years this time despite NSW whinging, cheating and dirty playing better.
Musky should start wearing maroon and emigrate to Qld where the beer and weather are better.
Musky drinks real beer. The Quearslanders can't spell beer, they call it XXXX.
cheers

Careful olev. I've got a keyboard and aint afraid of using it.

My A10 has a maroon tank and exhaust wrap. Lucky I'm not a sensitive soul.

. The bike was maroon when I bought it back in '79 and when I refurbed it I wanted it as it was.
. Armours replacement pipes didn't fit (grrrr) so I wrapped the old rusty ones.

Like I need an excuse for the way it is.

 My A10 is half 'Shanghai Red' (more or less maroon)  *wink2*, and half another colour- an experiment from a rattle can...

 In all fairness, if the Blues hadn't played as well as they did, the score would've been really embarrassing for their supporters...*smile*

A felony in response to a complaint about too few berries does seem a tad extreme.

Moving on to something more concrete ,which is where I nearly ended up !! I hate silly women driving BMW's who "forget" to look right when they pull out in front of you ,missed her by 2 ft and recon she nearly wet herself when she finally looked right almost into my eyes through her side window glass !! afraid she also got a free lesson in basic Anglo-Saxon .  *angry*

I hate the companies that for some perverse reason cannot get manhole covers flush with the road and always position them directly where motorcycles are riding they must hate motorcyclists it is amazing how deep some of them are. I much prefer looking at the scenery rather than looking at the road trying to avoid them.
