ThumbsUp Hello from sunny Newcastle

Post  Baz1102 on Wed May 23 2012, 12:36

Hi everyone, just a quick hello from me. I've been lurking around the forum for a couple of weeks but since I bought my cat on Saturday I figured it was time to jump in and join you.

I have my Mod 1 next Thursday and Mod 2 test on June 12th so until then I'll just have to make myself content with looking at her in the garage grumpy

Hopefully I'll see you on the road in a few weeks! green smile

Thanks Ellie,

Fell for the cat when I was 17 but the mother wouldn't let me have one! Then I noticed that one of the guys at work had one and I just had to get one of my own.

The back yard at work is slowly turning into the Thunder Club, once I pass we'll have 2 cats, 1 ace and I suppose we could even let the fazer lad join us if he brings cream cakes!

Hi Baz,

Welcome. welcome3
It sounds like you're running your own branch of the site at work. Don't hide us from the rest of them. I've just sent a batch of 'business cards' to R17Z (Steve) who said he keeps seeing loads of 'Cats about. Hopefully you'll be one of them very soon.

Good luck with the Mods. Passing is the best feeling ever! green smile Once you're on the road take time to get to know your steed. The 'Cat is a very capable bike so treat it with respect until you get some miles under your belt. If you're up for it there's a meet Aug Bank Holiday weekend in E Yorkshire. Have a look in Something for the Weekend section.

All the best,
Chris

Hi, welcome all the best with the tests.

Think I eyed out the Thundercat 10 years before getting one, so was a 1 bike race when I decided to get back on 2 wheels Very Happy

Hi and welcome to the madness, I too bought my cat before I passed my test back last November, as Steve said passing is the best feeling in the world, especially when you know you've got your reward waiting in the garage at home.

I remember some guy I went for my mod 2 with saying he was really relaxed about the test because it wasn't like it was life or death. I said speak for yourself mate I've got a gorgeous bike that's been sat waiting for me to pass the test for over a month, it IS life or death!!

Needless to say there actually was more on the line for me and I passed Smile He was crap and failed with 3 majors and 7 minors.

Enjoy your tests, relax and think about the prize waiting at home for you Smile

Keep us posted

Steve

R17Z I'm just over the water in South Shields so aye, I'll give you a shout when I pass mate.

Thanks again to everyone for the warm welcome. Can't wait to get off the drive, getting fairly bored of wheeling her out of the garage and riding back in!
