Isn't a segway one of those weird yank 2 wheelers that make everyone look like an idiot when riding?

So yes, a weird two wheeler, but not a yank one!

We all indulge babe


Let's face it, you wouldn't go to a nurse to get good advice on a problem with a Falco - you'd choose an Engineer or a mechanic...

Why is everyone so anti masturbation? It's sex with some one I love


Bonus points for any that can name the comedian

Well it didn't take long for a thread on getting us back in control of our funding to degenerate ..... I guess it's what comes from watching videos such as these ...

No, not yet - we're close to clearing the outstanding but donations seem to have dried up a bit .... however there are probably still a few reliable members that haven't logged on for a while.
If anybody has dropped on this thread at this point and doesn't know what it's all about and why we need to raise funds, click the link to take you back to the beginning:
https://www.ridersite.com/viewtopic.ph ... 38&start=0

I'm sure we'll clear that soon but will then need to rise to the challenge of getting some in the pot in readiness for putting us into a secure position for the future.

With the way people have already risen to the challenge, the signs are very good in suggesting we'll get there.

Thanks - much appreciated.

General info for Everyone:
We're close to clearing the debt but donations seem to have dried up a bit - nothing since Friday.

Hopefully one or two more will drop by the forum, spot this and chip-in.

Fatboy's plan of a regular donation is a nice one - perhaps a few of us could think of doing likewise and we'll soon be on a sustainable path towards the future.

I've given a bit and will drop a bit more in later.

As well as a lot of help and advice this forum saved me the cost and trouble of an engine re-build.

If I hadn't found out about the clutch diaphragm leaking and causing smoke I'd have piled-in and either done the valve-guide oil seals or swapped the motor (or set fire to it- I was pretty sick by that point..).
