Hello Stu,

Welcome & well met young sir green smile

Hope you enjoy your time here on the forums. There's a gold mine of info for you to get lost in, but if you can't find what your looking for, please do ask . . . you'll get a friendly (if somewhat strange at times What a Face ) answer. At the least someone will likely provide a link to the relevant info you're after.

You're quite right. The Thundercat is indeed a very nice bike. If you ever feel the need for company on a ride, have a wee gander at the Something for the Weekend section left thumb up You'll be more than welcome to join in and we'd be delighted to meet you.

Anyhoo, welcome again, good luck with the test, and perhaps see you out there sometime Thumb

Cheers
Tel Toff

Welcome Stu - it'll be the best decision you ever made. Smile

The Cat is certainly a great bike, it does loads of things well and is really reliable when looked after.  left thumb up

Good luck with the test!
