Question to the Aussies

Just a curious question for the Aussies.

Up here in the Northern Hemisphere we refer to Aussies as "the Land Down Under".

Do you refer to us as "Up Over"?????

"It's a friggen motorcycle, it's not supposed to be comfortable, quiet or safe. The wind noise is supposed to hurt your ears, the seat should be hard and riding it should make you shit your pants every now and then. "

I thought the earth was flat up there? No under, no over. Just flat. Although I am curious to know what lies underneath.

I had a friend i rode with allot that moved to usa from Austrailia, he always said the laws with motorcycles and guns were one of the reasons he left. he is still in the usa living up in michigan now, 30 years later.

Rhyming slang is a feature of Australian vernacular, inherited from the Cockneys that came (or were sent) here years ago I believe. So I'm afraid "Yanks" are known as "Septic Tanks" here.
