HI all.

Hi all, (three of you at the moment) Very Happy

Some of you will have known me as "copout" in my previous existence at MSN.

I feel privilaged to be one of the first to sign up here as I was also one of the first to sign up to the very first Thundercat site all those years ago.

I bought one of the first Thundercats way back in 1996 after seeing a picture in MCN & telling myself that it was the bike for me, & it was. It was & still is a great bike, I believe Yamaha missed the trick in failing to update the bike over the years, instead giving us the Fazer with a detuned Thundercat engine.

I havn't had a good look over this site yet, but it is looking good so far.

Welcome to all Thundercatters past, present & future, keep those 'cats' purring.

Westie (or Frank to those that know me).

Indeed we do start early he-he Laughing

Welcome welcome, welcome, welcome Westie, catapulted, furball, fastkat and welcome (change of name) ~fiddlercat~ . . . . sorry sorry stevecat Wink

You be careful tinkering around, I spent 18 hours straight sweeping, dusting and shifting around in here to get it spick & span for opening time at Oh SIX THIRTY affraid this morning. :sleep:
Mechy69 is knocking around somewhere too, I'm sure we'll bump into 'im sooner or later.

Glad you all seem to like the feel of the gaff so far. Makes the effort worth while :cheers:

Cheers and see you out there

It sure is a lot of work, stirling job. My fiddling has been 'restricted' to seeing what the message editor can do Twisted Evil. I discovered I can't attach a file, so needed to be a bit resourceful when I posted the South East ride - however we've gained way more than we've lost.
I'm the third one on here, don't want to be the first booted :( ..... hang on what happens if I press this clown :bounce:

Cheers Si,

Free at the mo, there is a widjet for sponsorship where the begging bowl goes out to members.

Lets see what we can do before we even approach that avenue let alone go down it eh.

In the mean time welcome home and enjoy

Hi Folks

Post  Bravepill6 on Thu Nov 06 2008, 23:41

Evening All,
A wee note to say thank you for setting up this new site.
I don't even have a bike nor do I ride.
I'm the idiot that sits behind Rosco on the Ride outs and weekend trips.
This said I have always been made to feel welcome both on the site and on the runs.
Was a bit lost when I thought it was going to close.
Should have known Rosco and Co. would come up with the goods.

Once again thanks Guys.

Hi,

I have been viewing the old site for the two years that I have had my Cat and wish the managers all the best for this new site.

I have always been impressed by the helpfulness of you crowd and the lack of bitchiness that plauges some sites.

Thank you to the managers for all your hard work.

Best wishes,

MuddyRutter
