ThumbsUp Good evening chaps...

Post  Tribal Chestnut on Wed Aug 28 2013, 23:00

Just stumbled across this forum whilst searching for luggage options for my Thundercat.

Had it for just over a month now & have done about 1000 miles, loving every one of them.

It's my first 'proper' bike since passing Mods 1 & 2 in July, so was always going to feel a bit special. I also have a DT125 which I've owned for about two years now & will be keeping for the foreseeable future (intend doing a bit more greenlaning now I don't need to worry about breaking it!). My little girl loves it too. I've treated her to a little ride locally, but am abit too scared to take her out regularly. Still, she gets to rev it from time to time.

Only regret is not having got my licence >10 yrs ago when I first had the urge. It almost makes me want to sell my cars.

I think a few wet, cold, winter rides are in order to bring me back down to earth (hopefully not literally)...

Ever since I bought a car it has made me realise just how great motorcycles are. Cars can be very convenient - jump in, turn the key and drive - but for sheer thrills and quick effortless overtaking, you can't beat a bike.

Wish I'll be able to still ride a bike at 84.

Any secrets we should know about as to keep our limbs from seizing as I'm starting to feel old at 40!

Good choice of bike though, treat her well and she will do the same in return.

But welcome to our site, bags of information we have on most things and a few get together rideout's each year either, Wales, Lincolnshire or Scotland. The more the merrier.

I get a funny feeling that he is no more 84 than I am 42. (yes, I lied about my age, call me vain. Laughing )

Eeek! Sorry to disappoint. Tee is correct. I always fib about my DOB on these things, maybe a touch of paranoia.

TBH, I didn't expect anyone to pay any heed to it.

My heartfelt apologies if you feel cheated!

Anyway, thanks for the warm welcome folks, anyone fancy a Werther's?

I don't blame you, especially with the recent Prism scandal. Hope you're using Tor with a VPN. Laughing
