    RAV4 new use

    Only in the mother country.

    Sadly, I had no part in it. And if offered, I probably could not have climbed through the roof opening (which mine doesn't have, anyway).

    A better target might have been a Pontiac Asstek...

    Having fallen on the ice in OKC, injuring my left side by hitting a concrete wall, I have to say this looks like a good way to die.

    Getting old, I guess.

    You know you're getting old when you show good sense.

    I didn't do wheelies on motorcycles when I was young. Too much respect for the cost of the machine, I guess.

    Mind you, the RD350A would do them, whether I tried or not.

    As I am reading this the rescue chopper has just taken off and is low and fast...probably a smash on the highway or another overseas tourist roll-over on Fraser Island

    Wouldn't be surprised.

    I see so many accidents, eventually I just think maybe someone should take away the keys from a lot of people.

    No more intentional wheelies - you've probably got some time to go.

    Of course if one is playing with a trials bike, it is necessary to unload the front end (as well as the rear) from time to time.

    The RAV video looks like a rational activity to me.

    NZ's first winner of the the Victoria Cross in the Boer War ended up twice wounded in WW1 [Gallipolli and Somme] and then took up flying aero shows in the USA trying to raise money for the RAF.. when he got killed in an aero crash.

    And you think we guys don't sacrifice enough huh?

    It is amazing the number of rollovers on Fraser Island ...Asian and European drivers who dont realise that lower tyre pressures mean different handling on sand.

    Vehicles most commonly involved are the Troopy
