Hola Old and New... It is I, you're long lost member...

OK you might not remember Moi, but my Eloisa you can't forget... The best Africa Twin by far (well at least on this site anyway ;) ).

So, quick catch up then... AT Still going strong, VFR gone, ZZR1400 bought and sold and a new GTR 1400 penciled in for early 2011... That's it for bikes... Been work busy, to busy... Got married, moved; twice, new job, few good trips :)

And now I'm back (from outer space), and plan to do a little work on the Old Bird over the winter... OK nearly a complete rebuild... New Can, new rear shock, refurbish the frame and racks, new handguards to fit, pondering a rim refurb, maybe a complete re-wire and a few little bits. So, I might be needing a few bits of advice if I'm desperate. Hence I'm back, thinking you 'desperados', might could come in useful ;)

So, any of the old posse still about? Is Mable still fretting about everything and hows Oberst Kymmy? Oh, have I still got someones seat for their AT? (Anyone out their with a very sore ar5e? ;) ). Ummm... and do I still hold the record for dropping a bike the most frequently or have you lot found a new fall guy? ;)

Hope you're all cool, I'll catch up soon... Plan to start on her next weekend.. Shes well over due a lot of TLC.

And Remember... "Trouble will come soon enough, and when he does come receive him as pleasantly as possible ... the more amiably you greet him, the sooner he will go away."

Ah Das Vader, learn from master you did! (Still in charge of the Death Star Canteen? ;)). Wheelie, he always was rather gifted ;)

Xanders Bucket... Better than Eloisa! You've been duped, never trust an Antipodean that likes to play with animals and really can't drink! ;)

Name change.... I couldn't remember me log in or password...! And what do I get for me twelve quid then?

a decent bike perhaps?
Now I know the resale value for KTM's is bloody aweful compared to Honda's AT's (Obviously!), but don't get that disillusioned dude ;)

Hi fletch nice to see you fellow. We were fondly remembering your big Bertha AT and your off roading at the last national just gone.
Let me know if you want to merge your accounts and become fletch again.

Hi Mike, been a long time.

You were the first member I met on here and still havn't forgotten how you helped me out all those years ago - still owe you several beers for that if we meet up again.

I take it it was your AT that was at Verity's for a while? Saw it several times in the back of the shop.

Catch up soon.

Jason

OK DeeDub.... Where do I sign up...? :thumb:
Did I ever tell you the Story about th is German Chappy riding a GS whos Drive Shaft had broken I came across? Anyways, after some time explaining to me his problem and with no real common language, he wasn't that impressed when after sifting through one of my boxes I appeared with my spare chain... Laugh... I did, it kept me amused for weeks :)

Nice to see you back Fletch. And I think you'll remember I dropped mine when trying to help you after you'd dropped yours.;)
