Is that a gen-you-wine UHF analogue television aerial leaning on a late 80's Familia hatch I spy in the corner?

aah 4WD one, thats why it has teh nicer looking bumper. What is it with alot of modern youth not wanting to get their licence in a hurry? I couldn't wait to get mine and most people I went to school with were the same

I'm older than you, Wachy. Ran out a learners licence - who knew they expired after 10 years?
No desire to own a car, though I can see the value in knowing how to drive one/ being legally allowed to.

All modern NZ drivers licences only last 10 years, to get it renewed all one does in walk into licencing agency, hand over money, fill out form, do eyesight test.

I'm pretty sure that my original paper "full licence" was a life time one

AFAIK my dad still carries his so he can intentionally be a shit to cops for a bit by rightfully pointing out that he has a lifetime licence :D

Yeah, I know.
But when you fail to hand over money, fill out form, do eyesight test, you no longer have a valid learner license... And don't seem to give much of a shit.

Dropper seat experience has now ruined me riding...

Every time I hop on something, I wonder to myself after the descent.. How much better would that have been with a dropper seat ?

Is funny though. Just been down Bull Run in Belmont, at a good rate on the maiden ride of the Ridgid King Kahuna, and my shoulders and arms get a hiding with no suspension, and I'm wondering how much better with a dropper seat. Not suspension...

I hope everyone has a good Christmas holiday. :D
