Making the 'new user' message stop

  1. Hi All,
    I've been lurking around the page for a while now and decided it's time to make the annoying messages go away.
    I've been riding since the start of 2011. A bit of a New Years resolution of her's to get our licenses and go out riding.
    We're more into cruisers than sports.
    After a few months on the little Virago we bought for her I needed more speed so went out and bought a brand new XVS650 custom.
    Loved it.
    She never really took to the bike though so when the rego was up on the Virago she decided that she'd really just be happy to ride on the back with me so hers went back to the shop and I started looking for something bigger to better handle the extra load. I found an XVS1100 custom that ticked all the boxes and it's been great.
    I ride every chance I get and we've done a few major rides over the last year. HOG poker run, Toy Run, Black dog ride.
    Some of you might have seen me about.
    I look forward to meeting many of you out on the bike. Enjoying the weather and the ride.

    Steve

  2. Welcome Steve, Congratulations on your De-Lurk. I would be careful of calling the partner "extra load" ;)

  15. I acknowledge your parking skills can be sharper but it could be a lot worse as well

    Lol.
    I didn't remember what I had written back then. I remembered later that cjvfrcjvfr had replied.
    Thanks for making me feel 'special'.
