Cheers Bikes!

Im kind of scratching my head over OTRs russki...

Perhaps it is Confucianist philosophy? Or a Zen Buddhist metaphor which is not meant to be understood but rather reflected upon and used to seek enlightenment?

It's not locked anymore. There's a problem with the forum which still shows it as locked.

Sorry for the off-topic posts people.
Like how many girls are on this forum...!? This is a totally male dominated! The construction industry is still the only totally male dominated thing left, why coz it’s a man’s job!,

Do you think the Burj Dubai could have been built to where it is at now by a gang of women! eerr no!

Not being sexiest or anything, but us guys get the job done
