yep, Happy Australia Day all, Love this wonderful country.

almost walked into our resident roo by the side of the house, not sure who jumped more.
Gave him a bucket of water to drink, and he wandered off into the mulberry tree out of the sun.

Hi all, I’m looking for some advice. I’ve been considering buying a new Ms500i from a local dealer but I’m not sure if they’re doing their best to offer me a good price. I’ve been offered a new 500i with a 20” bar & chain with 1 spare chain for $1950. I’ve seen the 25” setup advertised for $2250. I’d appreciate your thoughts

that about market a few bucks either side & occasional a bargain pops up 25 inch bar for 20 inch price and spare 20 inch chain about $60 to $80 i reckon get the 20inch enjoy then save for a 25 bar chain later ..

the 500 great you wont worry too much about dollars once you used one
