Too bad.
    We used to enjoy it too.... but don't get it anymore either
    Did a little research and found out that SpeedTV "was" a wholly owned subsidiary of FOX and ceased to exist as a separate network on Aug 13 2013..
    Replaced by "Fox Sports"....

    At least for the ones that I have met.... our brothers and sisters from OZ have a unique outlook and zest for life..

    Had a couple occasions many years ago where I spent some time in Alice Springs on a scientific project... Great People.....

    Some nice Bikies there! I've always liked bobber bikes. I have a 2011 Harley-Davidson Dyna Street Bob which comes bobbed from the factory. I did have to add floorboards but otherwise she was ready to roll.

    Always fun to see how things are done in other parts of the world...

    here is an Australian view on what might be considered a melding of Bobber and Cafe Racer...
