sorry dude, you should fire your marketing department... the whole department.

posting any bike for sale on a forum of people who build and race bikes and generally are cheap as fuck unless it comes to real go fast parts is an exercise in futility...

Well, the bike is for sale in Australia, naturally you being the ignorant stupid Americans you are, didn't read its location. I'd like to highlight this so in future you don't bother replying to a post not aimed at you, if your loud mouth way of life can resist.

Or cared. It's crap no matter what part of the world it's in.

Unless the Aussies have evolved longer arms so they don't look like there taking a shit hunched forward riding a bike like that.

You guys are a bunch of effin morons. Didn't you see in his initial post that this excellent piece of kit has been redesigned and rebuilt. He used the highest quality flat black rattle can when he hosed down that pathetic lump of a motor, including all the case screws and such. He thoughtfully left some patina on the shift lever, for those who are looking for a "Rat Cafe Racer". You will also note that whilst he did include header wrap of the stock exhaust he wisely did not mess with the fine factory engineering with regard to the suspension, brakes, footpeg location or engine performance. So, it appears he redesigned away the rear fender and designed in a way to fit an oversized silly looking seat. He was able to get the front fender down to almost total uselessness to go with the cheapest street tires he could find. All in all, this is one of the finest redesigned and rebuilt Z250s I have ever seen. I look forward to more of this emerging entrepreneur's outstanding work which he will be able to foist off on an even more unsuspecting hipster public. Lucky for him, there in fact is a sucker born every minute. Do they have Starbucks in Oz?

They do actually have Starbucks over here, Ken. And if you look hard enough, you can even get Pabst Blue Ribbon for about $20 more per case than a top shelf Euro beer.

And "foist" is my new favourite word of the week.

So do the poseurs ride their hipster, d-bag Z250's there? I have better taste than to drink PBR no matter how much it costs. So, on to a serious question: I find Fosters to be mediocre at best, as is usually the case for export beer, so what are some good Australian beers? There must be some good to great ones, right. I mean I feel like Ozzies (that isn't offensive is it?) are some serious beer consumers.

Nobody drinks Fosters over here. I'm pretty sure you can't even buy it locally anymore - it's all export.

There has been a wave of interest in smaller boutique craft beers, so the walk in fridge at my local bottle shop has become a great place to hang out on hot days trying to decide which one to sample this time...Matilda Bay Brewing, James Squire, Coopers, etc....

Some good beers coming out of Tasmania too - Boags and Cascade breweries produce some very nice beers.

Here's a few to look at:

Awsome, I love craft beers. We have some very good ones here in Alaska. Silver Gulch Brewery, which is just north of Fairbanks so it is the farthest North commercial brewery in the US, possibly North America has a really good Porter and their stout is pretty good, too. Unfortunately, we are 250 miles away by air but, our 1 liquor store does carry the Alaska Brewery products and the DeSchuttes brewery Obsidian Stout. It is $16 per six pack, but at least it is good beer.

This is a much better use for this thread. Beer is good.

Agreed - this thread just got a hell of a lot more interesting.

I've been favouring the odd IPA of late - James Squire does one called the Stowaway which is nice and tasy. Also Vale do an IPA which is equally fruity and hearty.

Likewise, these beers aren't the cheapest on offer - but life's too short to drink shit beer is one of my new mottos....

I used to drink lots of IPA and then the hoppiness just got to me. I now tend much more to porters and stouts. I love a good dark beer although a good brown ale like a Newcastle is always welcome.

Ah yes - Newcastle Brown is a nice drop. So is Kilkenny and Murphys Stout.

This is a nice local stout:





And this one is a UK one - but BOY it's rich:
