    Sony 55X900F

    Yes, it's step up from the Pana picture wise, even before changing the settings. The rtings site gives a good step by step procedure to enhance it even further, will give it a shot tonight. $1795 is a great price, grab it while you can!
  2. Just shouted my self a new tele, and Sony UBP X800 player. It's my first non Panasonic TV, having had various Plasma versions over the years, anyhow had a bit of a fiddle with the incredible list of options in the picture menu and not sure if it's any better than before I started to tamper with all the settings. Anyone out there have one of these TV's ?, if so what's the hot setup, also have Fox HD, not used for gaming. Planet Earth 4K is incredible, but I'm sure that lesser quality inputs can be improved....Cheers

    MOTOGP 2018

    Like everyone here who watched the Moto GP 2 race last night, I was astounded by the stunt that Fenati reached over and pulled the brake lever of a fellow racer at high speed during the race. A two race ban should have been extended to the rest of the season. No wonder he got kicked out of VR46. Well done Dovi in Moto GP, Yamaha still second rate besides all the talk and tests. On a side note, a long time ago in Bali on rented Yamaha 100's, a mate and I were "flat stick" racing side by side, when he reached over and hit my kill switch, I dropped back for a moment then turned it back on and BANG the muffler **** it self, the guy who rented the bike could hear me coming back and carried on but $20 shut him up.

    The Bend

    Just watched it on the telly, you're right, looks a fantastic venue. It should be up there with Phillip Island and Bathurst once we get used to the layout and the landscaping and vegetation works are completed to add a bit more character. So good to see a proper permanent race facility being built to such a high standard, hats off to all involved

    Just booked my ticket, 3 day pass camping at the Highside ground, talking of beers, gave the Coopers Red a nudge last night waiting for GP at Silverstone to start fell asleep round midnight in front of the tv, could be worse, could have been trackside over there

    Yamaha CD-S1000

    I have a Yamaha CDs 1000 and so far no worries, bought some SACD's to try and all good. It does take longer to load/read Cds than my previous player, Marantz CD 80. Sound wise I'm happy, the BIG difference comes when I swap speakers. Running it through a Yamaha AS 2100

    MOTOGP 2018

    It looks like Marquez's race to me going by his consistent lap 1.56 times. Rossi to crack the 6000 point barrier tonight and be on the podium is a very good possibility. I'm certain it will be a cracker till the tyres drop off.

    MOTOGP 2018

    OK, no more mention of "sh*tboxes", from me, anyway. On a more important matter, I'm thinking of getting a grandstand ticket for this year's Phillip Island GP. Previously when I've gone down there I just got a general admission pass. Although one year I had a Honda Riders Club pass, but I don't think it's a good deal for the price. So, methinks the Bass Straight stand would be the best bet, for viewing the race, thoughts?

    Yes I must admit, the standard CX 500 was plug ugly, but this one really hits the spot. Good to see people thinking out of the box when it comes to customising motor cycles. Actually the CX was the first Jap factory bike to receive the turbo treatment, later replaced by the 650 version, apparently a much better effort. Also saw a GPZ 750 turbo in the car park, very original, mint condition.

    Enclosed is a snap of the bike, not mine but sent to me from a mate. Not the best quality, it was taken from another show. No new models but a lot of fully restored road/ race versions. Other desirable bikes included a Final Edition 1299 Ducati and a Ninja H2, plus heaps of 80ties Jap bikes, my era. All these were in the carpark!
