Morning.
 
Sculling about on the net and found the forum. I might fit in...I'm an old git a small shout off 73.
Tried filling in the CP section, biography's a bit skinny so..First bike at 14 was a battered James Captain 197cc. Used to keep it in my mate's Grandad's allotment shed and ride it round the lanes after school. Passed my test in 1964 on a BSA C15. Always had a bike of some kind, some shit others bueno.
Didn't get infected by a car licence 'till I was 30.
Ride a 1997 Guzzi Cali now, had it since new. Bought it when my Mrs died as my Yam XJ900 held too many memories, still got the Yam laid up though.
Guzzis' probably the best bike I've owned in 59+ years. Chuck my camping gear on it and not crippled after 200 comfortable miles.

My bottles gone now, don't ride much after October till March, frosty roads and old bones are bad news and throwing it up the road it hurts more now anyway.
Here you go, this is my tractor...:D

Hello and welcome, another old git here 65, had given up on bikes, but due to the loss of a close friend, i inherited his bike and it would be rude not to sort it out and ride it occasionally, although a hard tail is not what i remember now arthritis has set in.;)

Greetski vrom Lincolngrad, Da! We is all getting old matey! I ride (well it's on sorn at the moment!) a Yamaha Fazer 600, bought new for my 40th, sold it on ebay in 2007 full service history with 14k and immaculate, to fund buying a car for the missus for her 50th. Then four years ago, I was on ebay on a Sunday afternoon, you know that time between having dinner and waiting for the evening TV drivel to start and you had a few bevvies. So you start trawling Ebay for something better to do. So there I was beer in hand so to speak when up pops this silver Fazer not far away up the road from me, for a silly BIN price of 600 quid, Mot, needing some new doen pipes 50k on the clock and a bit frayed around the edges. So I thought stuff the missus I'll worry about the nuclear fall out later (I'm brave when I have a few beers in me!) and put the bid in and got it. So when I was arranging to collect it. I happened to mention to the guy that I hada silver Fazer once and sold it to a chap on Ebay quite local to me with the reg. no. HMR and I used to call it HOMER (still do!). To which he replied Yup, this is Homer, and I am the guy you sold it to! So what are the chances of that? So now Homer is staying with me, even if it doesn't shift ever again!

"So what are the chances of that?"

'Twas written in the stars Friar Tuck that Homer belonged to you even before he left his birth place in Fazer Land...:D

Thanks for the welcomes Folks... :)
