Im located in Homebush West, Sydney. Ill be more then happy to join in stunt days and learn. More learning then stunting (borrowing advice)...... but its a start! I will keep a look out for possible ride/stunt days etc.

Heading to Queensland on Wednesday for Indy (titty watch). I hear the stunt inc team (correct me if im wrong) attend there most years.......... Should be a good display! Anyone else heading up there?

Reading up on the manual i have of my bike (2003 Honda CBR600RR), i see it has a 42 tooth rear (at 525). Would it still be street ride-able with a 52 tooth rear. Hear it is a 20% lose in top end........... Most speed limits are 110 anyway so 20% lose should be ok.

Anyway, Cheers and thanks for the welcome to those who did. Look forward to the challenges head.

YO BOOM! rock the stock geainrg man maybe get cheap dirty to learn on so you dont spank up the 600RR there pretty soft bike can only handle girly crashes before the subframe falls off haha!

if you wana be hardcore and really put some efforrt in to train hard get good and aint scared of crashin evry time you hop on get a f4i ive geared mine crazy low got the equivelant of a 66t rear so its as snappy as ever

if you never wana scratch your bike and are happy to be a the mad pimp at youre local coffee shop with a HB and a cage just keep the 600rr


( cue from stage left mad rage from JB haha )

just a quick hi to everyone, my name's James, I've got an 05 R6 as a commuter and trackbike, and a 99 model ZX9R, haven't really tried any stunting aside from the occasional wheelie, but I tell you what, some of you guys can do some absolutely crazy stuff!

Just signed up today 'cause I went out and watched sammo practice last night, certainly was some impressive stuff. :) Got abused by my housemates when I got home for not telling them about it so they missed out on watching. haha.

Got a few photos from last night too that I might put up if Sam doesn't mind.

Lookin forward to meeting some more of you guys in the Brissy area!

cheers!

oh, here's one pic of el sammo's bike

Hey, I do. Site's good and forums certainly are handy. I'm glad to see there's stunters in Brisbane, too!

I love photography and the like so I'll be more than happy to shoot some photos :D My new lens STILL has yet to arrive but should come tomorrow, which means I'll be able to get some wicked shots, especially during the day with some more light...

awesome man, awesome. Photography is certainly not my forte, not too bad on the video on web stuff though.
You'll have to road trip it down to Sydney one day in a convoy with all the other Qld boys for Stunt Skills. I should have all the 2009 dates soon-ish which will be posted on the site. Also, there should be a Trix In The Stix early next year too. Date is still TBA.
Both events are pretty relaxed and aimed at getting wheelies off the streets and into a safe, legal environment.

Sounds awesome man. I used to live in Sydney so I'd certainly like to ride down and catch up with some friends down there, and take some photos at stunt skills!

Hey everyone, I'm Damo from Perth. I ride with WCS and have ridden with Bender last year at the Perth Power Cruise (which was awesome). We're all looking forward to 2009 Power Cruise which will be an incredible weekend!! Another WCS'er (Brian) and myself went halves in a wrecked fizzle and we're building her back up to be a full-blown stunter. I even just bought one of those new Full Throttle Inc dual handbrake set-ups using a two 4-pot calipers for the hand AND footbrake...sweeeeeet. I'll put some pics up when we've finished the build (should be a couple of weeks hopefully).

Here are some pics taken of me a few weeks ago. 2-up stunts are da bomb :D
