Not being from your area I'm not sure of the names of all the roads,but probably done them.

You on any other forums.

Visordown or the likes.:confused:

Been on the MCN Forums for a while now on and off. Good for rowing with folk about general issues too, - eg. Fox Hunting and Iraq etc.

Actually, ' just joined 'visordown' before I found this one ,so never posted on there as I preferred this 'coz it focuses on R1's, is huge and has masses of info and advice on the bike.

After all, only so much free time in a day (gotta try and earn a living too!)

What about you - on 'visordown'? - how do you rate it?

The reason I aint been here much is coz I spend a lot of time on VD.

Great crack as the yanks dont get our sense of humour,loads of banter.

Met a few of them at a track day at Croft as well.

Will check out 'visordown' next time I get time to kill, sounds good - though, as I said, I am trying not to get too hooked on these things.

We need a new name ? - R1-445 "x?x" Squadron - not very catchy ?

Although, as there is only two of us (to my knowledge) perhaps we should be a 'brace' rather than a Squadron! :crash

I know of 2 other people from here on this forum.

A guy from Kirkcaldy that I've met and another one from Dundee who mysteriously disappeared when I offered him out with us:bash

:hellobye Greetings Toxin.

So does this mean there are five in this squadron ?

Two in Dundee
One Livingston
One Kirkaldy
One Glasgow

We ought to find some more recruits and organise a ride out next spring ? Could start from Stirling (pretty central). - Just a thought.

D3LS (hope you don't mind using your first name, - how did you come up with that username?) What do you mean Kirkaldy guy disappeared 'when you offered him out' - was that to ride, or fight!?:)

If you guys are coming west tomorrow let me know and I'll try to get out and meet you. Will Perth be as far over as you come?

Not quite sure how the p.m. thingy works.

Is weather forecast to be good tomorrow?

Toxin, will you go via Stirling? (only 1/2 an hour from me, could meet en route)
