11 years?! sheeeeet!

Was here all the time in the early noughties. Was called DrCalculus (or DrC) for most of it. Was a good little community. Hope you can get that back.

I remember that handle! Blimey, I think I also remember the avatar too... a tin-man like character from a futuristic cartoon show... or something! Cripes, I don't even remember my own!

Hiya Yello!

Hello Rab, long time and glad you're back :smt003
I hate it when people ask if you have a bathroom, I want to say "No we pee in the garden"

Hiya BG

Yeah, we met at least once. Daft hat rally? I had the toxic shitter Africa Twin. Last I remember you'd triked the GT550 you had at the time. You still riding?

Sadly not. I put a lot of miles on that trike before I had to give up - France, Shetland (I cheated for that one and towed it to Edinburgh). Two bad hips and a dodgy diff stopped me riding a few years ago, gone to the dark side now with a VW campervan. TBH I don't think I'd want to ride again now in spite of having new hips, I've got used to not being cold or wet or battling wind! I had 20 great years, met a lot of great people from many and varied sides of biking, still in touch with quite a few of them thanks to the dreaded Farcebook.
I definitely remember the toxic bike and the Daft Hat rally! Hammy and Woody and whoever getting caught in a speed trap right outside the campsite! :smt003

Fair play BG. Age catches up with us all.

I just got around to getting my car test last year. Baby steps. :)

My son in law never got his till my daughter insisted - think he may have been 37. Now over 50 and he's a LandRover fanatic. Still got his bikes though.
