  17. G'day and Goodonya Athame

    Welcome to the wacky world of netrider.

    I had my second childhood (or was that third? Wife reckons still in the first!!) at 44 :shock: so you young pup's got a long way to go yet.

  18. Hi there Athame.

    I'm 30 and going for my L's tomorrow!
    Not so much a mid life crisis as the need to commute for my new job :)
  19. Noticed that too... black-handled blade, IIRC. Not that I would know anything about such things. Of course not. :shock: :p

    Welcome buddy - whole lotta crazies in here but they're all good fun! Enjoy. :)
