Hello, Lurked a while so thought I'd better join in....... Names Dave ... or apparently 'Durv' if you don't 'get' the accent. Manufactured in NW England in the mid 70's, bit tatty in places through wear'n'tear, runs on alcohol and depreciating rapidly. Been riding about 8 years.... and living in our little island paradise for 4 years and loving it. Live in bayside Melbourne and sunny weekends see me out and about on an '01 CBR Erion 929 RR -- sweetest 'blade ever made IMHO - she's a peach :wink: Missus rides a CBR 250 R and me and my best mate Mr Haynes try to keep them both maintained. Forums seem like a good laugh ..... nearly shat myself laughing over Nicholas's post regarding speeding. Northern humour can be pretty brutal but looks like you guys have it pegged as well - lol ..... should feel right at home. Anyways best get back to work .... keep it shiny side up and see you around. ta. ohh btw -- called meself sloth 'cos generally I'm a right lazy baztard.
