Another Old Fart New Member

Discussion in 'New Riders and Riding Tips' started by Maka, Mar 24, 2005.

  1. Hi All,

    Another Old Fart (fortunately 'Across Free') has joined the ranks. Increasing years, limited ability and lots of capacity (gotta have more than a litre to shift my mass!) make for an exciting ride every time I roll the Jackal out.

    Despite eligibility for 'Old Sillies' (and there was a few thousand of them in Canberra a couple of weeks a go), I mainly ride alone or with another club with a Canberra presence - Fat Bastards Motorcycle Club. http://www.fatbastardsmc.com/

    So all you squids show us elderly motorcyclists the respect we deserve :D . With time and a lot of luck you too may become an old fat bastard! The bike is the 'sanity aid' to help you get there.

    I was down in Melbourne in the cage last week - exhibiting at Avalon Airshow. Hook turns and tram lines -faaaarrkk! You Melbournians (sp?) are a brave lot!
