Hello from Portsmouth/Wales
« on: July 09, 2018, 17:57:44 »
Evening blokes

Just bought myself a beautiful VStrom 1000XT (I'm a big bloke and look like a monkey shagging a football if I'm a small bike) from Haslemere Motorcycles and pick it up next weekend.

Its going to be my commuter between Portsmouth and Newport (Wales) and obviously some mini adventures (Group of us looking at Spain next year)

Been a biker since 2004 and ridden most things (terribly) and do like to tinker. Looking forward to adding to the forums where I can and hopefully meeting some of you at some point for a babycham.

My names Paul but most people call me Cat as I have a weird last name

 :welcome: Paul,

Have a look at the rides section, bring your mates a bit further up the M4 for our West Wales meet.

Hello Cats,  :welcome2:
Look at the clock and the calendar.
It'll never be now again.
So just get out and do it.
As fast as you possibly can.
