Get Well Soon!

First post....

You have occupied many many lunch hours for me peaking into your part of the world. So thanks for all your stories and pics, just awesome! I was pretty stoked to find some sportbikes on here. I love all bikes, but I just can't seem to get passed rippin' through corners.

So so sorry to hear about you and Tails. Get well soon!!

Sorry about Tails. I had to take my Wife's Chesapeake Bay Retriever Laney, to be put to sleep today.(bad hips and 14 years old) I know how you feel.
Judging by the weather forecast, tomorrow will be my last riding day for a while, I plan to make the most of it.

Cheers

Sorry to hear about your wife's dog..... it really is the worst part of having a pet ....the way the leave you broken hearted.

Our riding is now over 'till spring - we have had snow and gales this past week.... and the gritters have been out chucking salt all over the roads. Will probably be March before our group rideouts start up again ......so at least I picked the right time to have my heart attack (it's not eating into the valuable riding season).

No 'fish n chips' ?! - unthinkable! ..... I'll just have to spend more time on the exercise bike instead.

If you like that sound, wait till you here the R1 with a pair of Akro's on!!!!!

Cheers ...... and yes, I hope I never have another week like it! ....
Gordon's R1 has Yoshi's instead of the standard cans - are the Akro's a lot louder then?

Thanks .... no worries .... I can't wait to get back in the saddle ...although that will be dictated by the weather now rather than my recovery..... roll on spring!

Thanks ..... and thanks for the 'first post' (I feel honoured) good to hear from a fellow 'sportsbike fanatic' ..... Welcome to the forum and I am stoked that you like the thread so much ....hope you will continue to when we manage to get riding again in spring (I can't wait - already heard that one of the group has ordered a Ducati Panigale for the new season - let the good times roll!)

Ah I failed to notice the Yoshi's. They probably not too different from the Akro's. A cool sounding bike either way!

It's tempting ....and it is something I have considered on several occasions during my life, particularly when my sister was living in Sydney and it had been raining here every day for three months (in April one year back in the 80's).....I do know how lovely it is to be blessed with a hot climate - I was born and brought up in Africa (Kenya)...


.... but I would miss Scotland too much. I can't see me ever wanting to leave now.
