Wow. That was fast! Thanks for the warm welcome.
Hi Adam! Yup, me too. Welsh and German. And I think I had a great-great-great-great grandfather on my mom's side who was a vicar from the east coast of England. I believe he was hung for some misbehavior with the congregation.
I've been around the block. I'm fairly difficult to offend, and unlikely to take anything too seriously, but thanks for the reminder. And therapy is always good!
Hi Kiwi! (isn't that the other side of the globe? Been down under, but never made it to NZ...)
Uh, yeah, about that pix; "The Beast" as Kathryn affectionately refers to her, isn't terribly photogenic. Beasty's my only personal transport (K owns the car), and I'm not much for show bikes. If anyone is interested, I can run off the list of what has been done. My most recent accomplishment is a self made Buell Pro Race muff built around a Magnaflow muffler. Works great, sounds awesome without too much noise (I think it would squeak past the infamous MOT test in the UK) AND is within 1.25 cm of the same tuning as the Buell offering of the day. Also, it won't blow out in 2500 miles like the Buell can did.
Who else from the colonies (USA included, of course) appears around here?
Oh, one more thing. My dyno guy, Barry, is a Kiwi. Suggest he fudge the numbers for a dyno shoot-out and you'll earn a big fat knot on the head!
I like him...
