Best tater scallops I EVER had was from Stockton takeaway. Golden flaky baked batter, made right there on the spot. Covered in tom sauce. Great way to end a day out there. Helped to floss out the sand too. From ya teeth anyway. Something else I can't eat now also. Or drink beer sad

I used to ride in the Stockon dunes on my 426, then go get a couple of Scallops from the Takeaway on the main road in Fern Bay, and go back out to the dunes... Destroyed a rim on my Hiace in Stockton.

Spewin about your deal mate, you'll definitely feel better not eating all the shit. It's all fucking poison anyway.

It is VitalMX man. I found the internet many years ago, and have been a member of many different forums across many different topics. I have NEVER seen a forum run so heavy handed like this one though.

Mate there's heaps of good GF beers. O'Briens pale ale and a czech one that's around. Id drink them anyday.
I'm in Italy now and Gf is a big deal and pizza that's as good as wheat based is available.
Just need to make GF Chiko rolls and I'm happy

Yes, but pick any media outlet you want, CNN, New York Times, etc. They all do it.

Doing something for a long amount of time doesn't make it correct. I enjoy reading the forums and all the speculation and hear say stuff. I want more personalities out of the heros of my sport. Whether any of it is really true or not is always up for debate as only the rider in question truly knows but its good gossip and is interesting. Look at how many pages and replies topics like these get. People love drama. Even you vital admins get in on it at times, but then later when you randomly decide its not going the direction you like or maybe are worried about what one of the riders in question are going to say to you about it, you just go and delete the dicey stuff. Seems pretty hypercritical to me. As a professional you should be able to separate your job (interviewing riders, reporting on races and moto related news) with the personal stuff (commenting on a public forum with other moto heads). If a rider comes up to you and says "hey, people told me that they heard on Vital that I like dudes, wtf". You should just reply as a professional and say "Oh some people started a topic in the forum it, wasnt an actual article write up or anything" or just say "it definitely not on an article, but maybe its on the forums, i will have to look into it".

Vital forums and Vital mx are 2 different things. One is for experts to report on hard facts about the racing, try to get riders to give honest, in depth interviews, and to showcase any new moto related products. The other is to get the moto community together to bench race, talk about there experiences with products and....GOSSIP.

I know some people push things to the extreme and will state wild speculation as fact, which they shouldn't, but its up to the readers to deiced for themselves to believe it or not. Its no different then when Matthes talks on Pulp about a riders intention to take someone out or not, its pure speculation as he doesn't truly know what the riders intent was and he is just stating his opinion on it, its up to his listeners to choose to either agree or disagree.

I'm not saying that you are wrong in your opinion on these debates, its just wrong for you to delete everything just because you have the power to do so. All you are doing is breaking the easy mean of communication between moto heads, your not eliminating the speculation as no one can do that (can you stop how most of the rumors start to begin with? Pit talk), so why try to shut people up on a forum meant to give people of common interest an easy way to discuss things?

It's fairly obvious why, the moderator relies on the industry for his income and doesn't want any threads to come back and bite him in the a***.

Also afaik it's his property and he can moderate in any way he chooses.

I wish things didn't get clipped unless its insanely outta hand. I don't post much but I stay up to date, Ive def noticed if guyb wants it clipped its getting clipped. It makes me mad sometimes as well, but guys try to fight it and they never win. Until everyone leaves vital its just gonna be how it is. Guyb is in a tough spot ill give him that.

once again you aussies are decimating the english language,

the bottom one is a potato fritter, very good for a hangover with some tomato sauce,

now a deep fried scollop is very good, and available from most NZ fish and chip shops, by the dozen,

ideally followed up by a nice kiwi pavlova, wink

I'm not insinuating that this is what happened in any Reed/Thomas issue either.

But I wasn't talking about someone "ditching" a celebrity type after they aren't getting as much spotlight as before, but rather how sometimes a high profile, highly emotionally fragile athlete, doesn't like hearing the truth from people because the "truth" was really positive in their prime. When someone who's been a good friend is respectfully real with them about things, often times an athlete will push those people away and bring in the next "yes man" to tell them how great they are, how they just need a turnaround on their luck, etc.

Whatever happened with these two, hopefully it works itself out if they were truly good friends. If they can't, they probably weren't.

Totally agree . It is actually pretty average that we have to keep dropping in to this thread that were not happy our comments getting constantly clipped..
Don't take your customers for granted, whether there opinions are right or wrong.
This whole website particular the forums is full of ideas and opinions.. that's why alot of us are on here .
We enjoy having a yarn and some banter, but to continuinely clip comments not just in this thread but a hell of alot of others is ordinary .

If anyone has bastardized the English language worse than the Kiwi's with their deletion of vowels from words, it's you Winkies in SA and the over pronouncing of vowels. Sound worse than Kiwi's even tongue

I want you all to know, breakfast this morning was outstanding!

Fresh turkish bread, toasted, drenched in butter, vegemite, and some bitey cheddar with a double espresso.

Fuck yes! Get involved.

I don't know him which is why I carefully said "the Chad Reed that he portrays himself to be". He very well might be a good guy when you get to know him but that's not the vibe he gives off.

Kiwis - their speech patterns and accent are pretty much unintelligible. To communicate with the world, they have to come to Australia to learn a language. And, far too many of them Do come here. Last one to leave, turn the light off, as they say.

South Australians - well, the less said about those weirdos, the better................. I'm sure they are descended from Kiwis.devil
