Hi all, I used to lurk these hallowed pages many years ago but spent most of my time on the Hayabusa forums. The busa is long gone (replaced by a gixxer thou) and what I have noticed as we get older is that all your riding mates eventually get married/have kids (or get hurt or...) and give up the bikes. I miss the "any excuse to grab a latte" rides and the busa boys won't come out when its cold :roll: and I knew that there are organised get togethers here so I thought I'd jump on and see what its like. A bit about myself: In my 30's (just!!), live in Hoppers, ride the gixxer on road and a wr250 offoroad. I have a yamaha jog but that is a long term project (read: I'm too lazy to fix it). Never been married and I'm a smartarse I think they may be a correlation between the last 2 points!! :grin: Hope to meet some of you guys soon. Mick. ps. the fastfreddygassit is self explanatory but I used to run the fred gassit portal on the alphalink site from 1996 till 2000 and something. I love Fred - what an absolute champion!!
