You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away

At least I will be able to say I knew Mountainboy before he became famous....

It is like telling people you were a classmate of Charlize Theron   ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

This is a wonderful idea.  I absolutely don't want to rain on anyones parade but if it does to our passtime what the Camel series did to 4x4 it will be a sad day.  Fortunately, if you dont get it right on a DS bike you fall & that should keep the posers on the tar.

Oh, you're all so funny, thank you especially to Kilroy and Groenie. May the silly spirit stay with us all and thank you for the support. At the moment its a bit of a rush trying to sort the scooter and equipment as well as hammering other areas of my life into some semblance of order.

Remember it is still a pilot project, but with support from people like you, it may well become something grand. Coolest!

Enjoy and keep us updated  ;)
