  1. Hi,

    Been lurking ion here for a couple of weeks and figured it was about time to say hello.

    I've just put a deposit on a Cagiva 650 Raptor, and should be picking it up the end of the month. All being well.

    Used to ride in the UK, but haven't done for a few years (for some reason I went all sensible for a while. :? ) But now I'm looking forward to getting back in the saddle.

    I guess that's a quick hello for now.

    See you on the black stuff.

    Welcome to Australia, & welcome to this community as well mate.

    No disrepect because you did alot for your country, but that name
    of yours is frankly disgusting. One of my son's is still eating the
    bloody green things

    Never heard that meaning for the word gorby before.

    TBH not sure where I got it from. Used to be called goraiko on forums but then folks started calling me gorby as it was easier to type. :LOL:
  4. I just asked my wife "You know what a gorby is?"
    "I don't know"
    "Its spelt g-o-r-b-y"
    "No I don't know what that is"
    "Isent it what you take out of your nose" (sticks finger in nose to show)
    "Thats a boogie you idiot"
