Introduction
« on: September 14, 2021, 20:45:25 »
Hello all. Passed my test in 2014 at the age of 47,  pffft, midlife crises indeed!! 😂 Bit of a latecomer to the 2 wheeled freedom club, but Hello, better late than never eh? Bought a 6 month old 2015 wee Strom xt and could see noooooo reason to get rid of her, (even when I bought a 12 month old 2018 1000xt)
I'm not mechanically minded, so am looking forward to learning lots. I live in Manchester and like to get off wild camping as often as possible with my hammock, tarp and bivvie bag. 👊
