Introducing myself..

Discussion in 'Welcome Lounge' started by Threepwood, Apr 4, 2013.

  1. Hi Everyone,

    I've been lurking for quite some time and now Netrider has threatened to punch me in the junk and boot me if I don't introduce myself; (ok, I may be over playing this a bit :whistle:). Anyway, I've found this community to be a great resource over the last 6 months or so that I've been watching it, so it's time I got off my lazy backside, introduced myself and got involved.

    I'm a returning rider; grew up on bikes around the farm but several moves around the world, raising a family and general 'growing up' distracted me. A while back I decided that I wanted to be able to ride again and have since gotten licensed and am currently sitting through my 12 months LAMS restriction period. I ride a stock XVS650 Custom and am looking for ways to give it some personality of it's own.

    Looking forward to getting more involved in the NR community.


  2. Welcome Threepwood, Where abouts are you based?
  3. Thx for the welcomes guys; Oh yeah, good point Chris, I'm Melbourne based (NE suburbs).
  4. Welcome Threepwood, is that your real name or are you a pirate?
  5. of course he's a Pirate :LOL:

    Welcome to Netrider, me hearties :)
  6. Welcome back to two wheels.
    He may of course be Galahad Threepwood or his older brother Lord Emsworth from the tales of P.G. Wodehouse.
    A more likely scenario IMHO as riding with a hook and a patch over one eye would almost certainly attract the plods attantion, not to mention the helmet with the large plume.
  7. Welcome to N Arrrr. :)

    Good to have another XVS Custom on board. I've personalized a little bit to make to more comfy but that's about it.

    Lots & lots of options around so ..

    Ride safe and see you around.

  10. I wasn't going to admit to knowing about Monkey Island ... but the average age in this thread doesn't make it seem so out of place any more.
