Major Apology

Gidday all,

I am Grant Major. I have been here in the past.......a while ago......and am somewhere near getting clear of some crap that has been happening in my life over the last 5 years.

There is a thread in here somewhere with all of the gory details of my humiliation after I dudded some fellow inmates who trusted me. I lied about returning their money and made excuses and generally evaded people etc.

I wont go into further details as to why and what I have been doing since 2009 but suffice to say it was an extremely dark period in my life that I would prefer to leave behind.

Anyway, I am now in some sort of position to try and redeem myself. Albeit slowly, my intention is to pay each and everyone back. With this in mind could each of the inmates concerned send me their details via PM so I can try organise. As I sad earlier it will take some time but I made a promise to myself that i would fix things and I intend to keep that promise.

I hope you are all well.

Sincerely.

Major

Some of those effected inmates aren't as active here as they once were.

You may not hear from all of them.

I remember you mate.
I think there was a thread about people bitching about cows on the road and I made a comment asking folk
"Do they realize how hard it is to keep a strong minded cow on the right side of the fence?"
and you replied
"Yes, my wife just left me for another woman"
or was that another major

I think I sent you $20 or $30 dollars for seafood you promised to bring to a get together. Only time I have ever been ripped off by an inmate.

I met you once at the winter rally. I have photos.

Grant ...life is too short to hold grudges. I'm forgive and forget. $25.00 in 2009 money is a slab in todays.

Fix it and all is good.

Major, I suspect the "Black Dog" has had a good grip on your life after the collapse of your relationship [been there, done that... my now ex. and our former boss doing things behind my back- life moves on, the lady in my life now and I just got married in May. Your life will move forward too].

Good on you for trying to atone for your misdemeanour's, some will forgive and forget, some will understand and let restitution slide, some will want compensation.... each to their own needs in whatever makes it right for them.

If you need an ear send me a PM and I will give you my phone number, if you are in the Sydney area we might even be able to catch up for coffee.

Cheers,
Steve

A strong first move, Major, and one I'm sure that was difficult to do. Probably not all those affected will be so forgiving but don't let that take you down. Kick that 'dog' to the kerb and move on with life. I am not one who had dealings with you but can surely relate to a visit to the dark places. Welcome back!

Wow, Grant good to see you back mate! You owe me nothing but if we get a chance to catch up for a ride I'm more than happy to get you drunk again and sit back and laugh while you wrestle with your bivvy. That night down at Limeburners when me and Andrew2 met up with you, Fish and Danno was an all time classic ADVrider fiasco I'll never forget - http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...ht=limeburners

You made a grand entrance that day, I remember watching you come barreling out of the scrub straight at us and saying to A2, "Gees I hope he can use the brakes as well as he's using that throttle!" and from memory the next day you could barely get on the bike.

You still got that place at Hargraves? I say that as I'm just up the road at Mudgee these days.

Great to see you back man,

Cheers

Bill

Gidday guys......yeah I'm on the up I hope.....trying anyway.

I plan to get all of this sorted in time, and it is going to take some time.

Bill, I don't have the place at Hargraves any longer as I lost everything mate. Including friends, and employment and health.

But, as I'm only just finding out -

"The most important things in life aren't THINGS"

I totally understand that some will harbour a grudge forever and I will cop that on the chin. I'm not going to hide, hence me asking for the reinstating of my original account here.

I have just borrowed some money off my dear Mother and bought a bike as I needed an interest. I loved being part of this fantastic forum and indeed the friendships which were dear to me. I hope that I can once again be involved.

I was going to travel down to the Alpine Rally but I am unsure as to whether I will make it or not. I will make a decision tomorrow.

Any way, enough of my ramblings.......onwards and upwards.

To all those that have offered support......Thanks so much. It really is sincerely appreciated. You know who you are.

Cheers,

Grant Major

It's a big man who will stand up and admit his mistakes and, more importantly, take responsibility for them.

A rare quality these days, well done.
