  1. I'm just an old fart that has decided to get back onto the saddle. Been off the bike for a number years after a serious accident, but hey, I've unwrapped the cotton wool now and it feels bloody good.
    Had a few off ride bikes and a couple of trailies over the years, but now I've got myself a nice 2012 BMW G650GS and I'm decking it out for a few trips.
    I blame the missus, because she bought me that Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman DVD set, and that fired up my enthusiasm to get back on a bike and do some touring of this great country. Some how I got the feeling she's not to happy now, never mind, a bloke has to do what a bloke has to do.
    Cheers for now,

  2. Welcome Rosco. I blame my midlife crisis on Boorman as well!
  3. Hi Rosco, welcome to NR. I reckon your wife knew what was going to happen when she bought you the DVDs - she sounds like a good woman! Does she ride? Pillion?
