My, this is more like a beaurocracy, than before. Need to dig out the avatar. Got one somewhere in here too. Ah well, I'll get to it. I do like the look of it, the new forum, but the animations bring my browser down from time to time. Like me, it's got some years on it. Anyway, I'm a long winded old fart, who began riding in the early 60s, and first did the pre-metric ton for the first time on a borrowed Bonneville at 16. Never did competition. No money. Have had a few bikes. Most of my riding over my life has been commuting 20 kays over the same and only bit of curvy road for nearly 100 kays in any direction. I belong to a couple of other groups and enjoy the odd rally or meet. Need to do more of that.
