I've been to the U.S of A once and the sunshine there is so bloody lovely, not harsh and abrasive like Oz, no wonder it's such a great environment for year round motorbikin and hot roddin . . . .
**** B.T.W - for those in places like Oz, En Zed etc lookin for a better range of Vans shoes than offered locally, Utility Board Shop in Frisco does international shipping and often gets hold of first release Syndicate stuff and other rarities if that's your bag . . . . even with shipping tacked on the price is still sharp as.
