    Thanks Netty. Yes I do have a problem with barking. 2 actually.
    #1 He barks at the neighbours but only if he can't get to the fenceline. He likes the neighbours but will go off if he's in the greyhound pen, which I have to utilise at this stage as the yard isn't quite dog proof enough for my female yet.
    #2 Sometimes he barks presumably through boredom. He never seems to do this when he knows I'm home. But I often return home to find him making noise. As soon as he see's me he goes quiet and cowers knowing that he has done wrong.

    My OH has a Kwaka VN800 which is a Jap rip-off of the HD Soft Tail, but much more reliable he rides it daily to work.

    I had a Yam XVS650 or V-Star it's colour was violet and was absolutely beautiful before that I had a 250 Virago.

    What can I say I'm a short-ass so the cruiser style suited me best.
    I learned on a 250 virago and should have kept it and stored it. Have been interested in all those bikes a while back but cruisers are not for me any longer for a few reasons.
    I like whippets, I think my neighbours dog is part whippet and is the most placid dog of that shape I have ever seen.

    Not sure about the 100% deaf part. There's no need to "sneak" up on him at all. Never seen him respond to anything soundwise unless it's questionable that he's not feeling vibrations or shockwaves. It is possible to wake him up by clapping in the garage when he sleeps next to the bike but it is ideal conditions for him to "feel" the sound.
    One thing for sure is that yelling at/to him will do no good unless he can see you are angry.

    Hi and welcome!

    Another bike family here, I'm working on getting my bike license at the moment (stupid q-ride) and will be buying a CBR250RR when I do. Hubby has a VTR1000 - evidently we're a Honda family

    Do you use your road bike as a daily ride or for specific outings? Hubby and I organise rides for groups of our friends, things like up Mt Tamborine or out to Mt Edwards and Lake Moogerah - Absolutely beautiful rides!

    Hi and welcome

    My OH has a couple of dirtbikes (no idea what type) and a Suzuki GSXR1000 2004 model.

    He had an accident on it in August 09 and is not trying to repair it

    Shattered his collar bone but A OK now

    I use my road bike for both. Occasionally a group of us will get together and head off out of town for the day or a few days sometimes. I can carry all the camping gear I need for a few nights except for food. I used to ride to work most days but have a few maintenance issues to manage before I do that again. I even take it shopping sometimes. Living with just the 2 dogs the grocery load always fits in the ventura bag.
    I actually have heard of mt Tamborine. Great run by all accounts. Good luck with q ride.
