'bout time I said Hello to you

Discussion in 'Welcome Lounge' started by tankgirl, Jun 8, 2009.

  1. Time to say Hello to Y'all :dance: (no wavey icon, so I'll just do a little happy dance for you)

    Been getting the feel of the site - already got in trouble...so yeah...making friends :cheeky:
    On a few other offshore (bike) forums.

    Been around the bike 'scene' for, forever - but always the pillion, never the rider. :(
    So trying to correct that obvious "faux pas" on my side by enbracing the "never to late" adage. Or "too old" - I hope :-w

    Get you up to speed - bike household > Mine (VTR 250, unreg), 1 restoration job (my trump - will post project soon).
    His - his business. Moved to the hilly area 8 mths ago today.

    Got my Ls a few years ago, but was too much of scaredy cat to ride. (I don't drive or ride a pushy, even)
    So let it (L) lapse. Found this site - so with renewed courage, I plan to go again.
    Definitely looking for a mentor/s - really patient but encouraging one/s. I'm in Ferntree Gully, Vic

    Soooo, looking forward to getting to know some of you & meet up & one day ride with.

    :blah: :blah: :blah: I'm done :grin:
  2. Gday, welcome, what area are u in for mentoring?
  3. Hey, goz

    Sorry folks - I'm in Ferntree Gully, Vic

  4. nah not far at all, only 1000km :shock: :shock:
  5. pfft, I ride that far for a coffee on a Friday Night.

  13. Ooo! A feisty one :LOL:

  14. Welcome Aboard TG !!!!
  15. The Trumpy has still got a bit to do I see, but the mill and silencer are looking good.

    Plenty of hours of fun to be had there.
    Nice to see some people still appreciate the real Trumpys
    good luck with it
  16. welcome to the forums!
    you're at least 5 minutes ride from my place :LOL:
    if you ever want to go for a ride give me a PM :)
    also, try and come along to a Tues Night Coffee, meet some more Eastsiders :grin:
  17. Make sure you get over to Tuesday night coffee and introduce yourself. The East Side crew are great (I was one, but now the FNQ representative) and Scumbag, Eleanor, Jo, G, Black Betty and team will provide heaps of support, fun and lots of laughs.

    And it's ok to take the piss of of Nibor. He lives your way too. Not sure of his bike/licence situation at the mo though. It changes rapidly.... :p

    [Edit] Oops, didn't see the response from Nibor two lines up
