  Although not recomended by me a native plant the Gympi Gympi (Nettles on roids) would also be fun to have, not so good for your kids and pets though.
Retro

Ah Gympi Gympi .
Have some not so fond memories of that special tree. :)

Having your VIN number engine# frame#with your insurance company or stashed away in your jet tin  8)
I dont believe dirt bikes are up there with the Porsche etc   :-\
Not sure how successful or utilized this is in OZ   http://www.datadotdna.com/au/protect_property.php

quote below from Stankflapper VIN postings --
This site has loads of info..though it seems on other sites, that we have diffirent laws for bikes than any other country.ie Lazy laws.
Always handy for your insurance company to have that VIN #

Can REVS do a check on a motorbike?
Yes, a REVS check can be done on a motorbike by providing the VIN/chassis number, engine number and registration number (if registered).

most companies will only insure your dirt bikes if they are chained to a concrete floor in your garage.sometimes its cheaper to buy another bike rather than pay the high excess on insurance.cheers.

Give Shannon's a call. I have got everything motorised with them now and they are unbeatable for me. Laid-up cover is what you want. It's full comprehensive insurance except for when you are riding.

A good one ffrom Dawn B down in Victoria.
HOW TO INSTALL A HOME SECURITY SYSTEM:
1. Go to a second-hand store and buy a pair of men's used size 14-16 work boots.
2. Place them on your front verandah, along with a copy of 'Guns & Ammo' Magazine.
3. Put a few giant dog dishes next to the boots and magazines.
4. Leave a note on your door that reads: Hey Blue, We've gone for more ammo and beer. Be back in an hour. Don't mess with the pit bulls; they attacked the postman this morning and messed him up real bad. I don't think Killer took part, but it was hard to tell from all the blood. Anyway, I locked two of 'em in the house and two in the shed. Better wait outside. Be right back. Cheers Red

We have just installed a new Uniden 4 camera remote system. Has it's own monitor that saves to a SD card, same as a digital camera. It also has an app for your android phone. $480 but well worth it I reckon.

good pointers here from Troy via  facebook after a positive return via Bayswater Police WA.



Here are some points to consider.
 1. Who actually knows where your bike is kept and how its protected?
 2. How many points of entry is between your letter box and your pride and joy?
 3. How is your bike actually secured? Is it locked to an anchor in the ground? Is it chained and is the chain good quality?
 4. Does it have an alarm, whether stand alone or hard wired? Is the battery charged enough for said alarm to work?
 5. Is your pride and joy insured. If so, what does the insurance policy ACTUALLY cover.? Read the fine print.
 Heres some tips for keeping your pride and joy in your possession.
1. Consider the time of day you move your bike to the track\trail.
 2. Consider where you wash\service your bike.
 3. Consider who is following you back to where you live or store your bike.
 4. Consider installig a tracking device, so incase of theft you can take matters into your own hands.
 5. Consider whether or not to post that picture of your bike on social media.
 6. Consider recording all details of your bike. Including photos, vin numbers, the way you secure it and how you transport it. Call your insurer and let them know of the details as well as keeping the details with your insurance policy in a safe place.
 Whether you are a weekend warrior or a hard core racer, a freestyle freak or doing it for your kids this is our passion. This is our life. To think that someone can take it away from us with no consideration to its actual value to the enthusiast is unfathomable.
