  1. Hey Fellow NetRiders

    Some of you guys might remember me from a few years ago ...

    I had a bad accident on my old VT750 in Dapto
    I actually had a fellow Netrider member come into hospital and vist me ...



    well its been 3 years nearly to the day that I had my accident ...
    im not back in the saddle just yet but I have bought myself a BARN YARD SPECIAL CT110 ..

    bloke literally had to move 6 hay bails to get it out . hadn't been started for 5 + years..
    same fuel in the tank.. anyway I bought it and carted it 3hours back home .

    I got it started but cant get it to idle so I have bought a few things of ebay to get me started...
    im going for a bobber look

  4. G'day kingykingy, welcome back to Netrider. A CT110 bobber is going to be unique as a Showcase item, no doubt you'll have a lot of fun on it.

  12. Kingy, welcome back!!!!!!

    Yes I did come and see you in hospital, I try and do that as often as I can with local and Sydney riders who have problems....

    So you're in Flinders? I live in Warilla now and work one day a week at Flinders Public School.

    So what was (is) your medical situation now?????

  14. Hey mate ,

    Yeah i live not far from the school :) 500m away

    well i have had multiple operations but I'm happy to say that i still have both my legs :)
    I'm back at work now full time doing 6 days a week , but back in the office which is ok by me , but not ok with my belt size :(

    however I'm in pretty good spirits been through a lot but have had awesome family and friends to support me ...
    My court case is still going on but i hope to have in finalised all within the next 6-12months.

    i had some money down in a brand new Fatboy lo but couldn't come to terms of being on the road just yet.. so i went looking for a cheap project that hopefully will turn heads when complete ...
    it will get done when it gets done :)
