Greetings from Bonny Scotland

Post  Joyrider on Wed Nov 16, 2011 10:17 pm

Hey people Smile
My name's Geoff, I'm 36 and I've been an alcoholic for about 6 months...eh?? Oh, sorry, wrong forum :P Really though, I've a year 2000 Piggy which I use mainly as a road bike, but occasionally I stray to the dark side and blaze a few trails. I also have a 1996 CBR 1100 which is currently sick, and is in bikey hospital eating grapes and awaiting a donor radiator.

I've had a quick look through some of the pages on here and you all seem like a bunch of suitably badly adjusted lunatics, so I figured I'd probably fit right in Smile When I'm not man handling the bike, I'm usually found playing guitar or being a greasy mechanic hiding in my shed.

That's me in a nut shell, Nice to meet you all, and I hope that along the way we can help eachother out a bit.

Ta muchly...G

Welcome to the best but not the busiest forum on the net, sadly the 650R isn't getting more popular...numbers are slowly dropping, another 1 bit the dust on fleabay....

Probably end up being broken for bits.... tears

Yo Joy,

luvverly intro BRP smile
Yeah, you got that right, suitably misfits to society we are indeed, and it's about time I should change my life!
I just had a nasty experience with prison because I didn't have the 10 bucks for that parking fine and beat up the attendant. That's why I've now decided not to curse, lie, drink, smoke or have sex anymore! All bad for you they say, should make me a nicer person.
So now I do Pigs - and please, no pun intended hmm? Keep it decent please.

Pigs, yes, a super hobby.... erm, where were we, and where's me fags? I looked everywhere.......... ?
Ahhh, I know, I fukken left them in the bar of the whorehouse I was yesterday eve, after I bribed the warden to get out razz

As Mauser says, not too busy here but all good lads, and info aplenty. Nice bike for chasing Cairns I suppose, so have fun whilst doing such Cool

Its a crying shame I dont have a spare 500 quid and a trailer, I'd happily find it a warm, dry place in the back o my shed lol. My piggy is having problems just now too, doesnt want to breathe properly, but thats an issue for the techy bit on here, so I'll post details later, once I've been and looked a little deeper into her woes.

@ BuRP: Don't give up cursing. lying, drinking, smoking or having sex, simply strive to ensure you're always doing at least one of 'em, and the more the merrier :P

Hmmm, Never envisioned that my first time would be with such a large group of people... :P

Welcome onboard mate, The people here are sometimes less than talkative (apart from BuRP, who'll talk, rant, insult, etc all day long), but you're right, a good bunch of knowledgeable folk. Hope you enjoy your visits, and as you're so new, it's your turn to put the kettle on and make the tea Smile
