        How To Cheat on Personality Tests
        1. When asked for word associations or comments about the world, give the most conventional, run-of-the-mill, pedestrian answer possible.

        2. To settle on the most beneficial answer to any question, repeat to yourself:
        (a) I loved my father and my mother, but my father a little bit more.
        (b) I like things pretty well the way they are.
        (c) I never worry much about anything.
        (d) I don't care for books or music much.
        (e) I love my wife and children.
        (f) I don't let them get in the way of company work.

            I have neither the time,or the inclination, to explain myself to a man, who rises and sleep under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner, in which I provide it. I'd rather you just say 'thank you' and go on your way.

              4 or 5, I think. I know I got 44,000km out of the OEM one, and have used DID's since, averaging around 35,000km each.

                Very cool! Does it use oil between changes?

                  It started to use oil at around the 110,000km mark. I then had the top end overhauled (valve stem seals included), and since then, no extra oil needed.

                    and put a "1" in front of that one as well.



                    Today is also "Australia Day", commemorating the landing of the "First Fleet" so many years ago.

                          One of these days I hope to get to Australia.

                          Maybe when I retire in a few years.

                            That pick of your dash showing 150K's could be right out of a Mad max movie .... a liberal supply of dust to look fully utilized !
                            Was up snow skiing on my local ski hill today , owned by Aussies and staffed largely by Aussie's . Well today, despite unfriendly clime's , lots of good and crazy Aussie guys and gals
                            skiing in their shorts and bathing suits ( or as my Ozzie bro in law calls em ..."costumes" ) ....

                            Happy Aus Day .... and hope things are getting a little better with the fires .... some more rain would be good... put out your fires...and more importantly might clean your guages !!

                              We only recently had some rain with a bit of dust in it, hence the "dirt".
                              No fires to speak of in my neck of the woods. They are (were) mainly on the eastern side of the country. A good bit of rain there has helped quite a bit, but every now and then the temperatures go up ( a bit like Arizona in summer) and the fire danger returns.
