Howzit everybody,
I just signed up, been watching for a while, it's good to get nonsense from home. I'm stuck in Arizona for now, will be leaving these shores before 2007 kicks in. I just got back from SA, back to graft and it's not making me smile at all.
Suppose I should stick my head up out of the foxhole - I've got a KTM 950S and a few other dirtbikes, KTM, Maico and Honda XR 650. The 950 is my first bike that spends any time on roads, so I'm not keen on traffic, stick to dirt as much as possible. Haven't dropped it yet!
Oh, I forgot to mention - Hardly-Ablesons SUCK!!! 1920's POS technology!
Must go shit-shave-shampoo now and go earn a few shillingi.
Cheers

Welcome wethefakareu and for some reason always wanted to go to Arizona even though I have no idea what places of interest there is to see. Care to share a few photo's from that side of the world dude  :)

OK,
Back on the green planet. Thanks for the welcome, I'll post shots of bikes and riding in AZ (and elsewhere, including Colorado and Uganda) as soon as I have time etc. My Maico is an 82 250, just like I raced at Brickor, Syringa, Back of the Moon, Rosherville, Durban Deep etc back in the day.  One tiny but sensitive detail though, I'm NOT a yank, so expect commentary straight from the horse's arse. I'm not known for being shy or tongue-tied. Or respectful of "authority".
Of course, any biker hooligans are welcome to crash at my place, pull in any time, got a pool and tools etc. Fridge full of good beer at all times, none of that budweiser chemical piss. Even found a supplier over here for Windhoeks, can't beat the kraut beer. Reinheitsgebot and all that.
I've been an ex-pat my whole adult life, in the land of the fat, spelled f-r-e-e over here, in Kenya, Somalia, Rwanda, Burundi, the former Soviet Union so I don't smoke bone, call a spade a spade. Just like most of what I see here, that's why I popped up, don't belong to any other sites  including advrider, (anymore!)  they only like free speech if it conforms with the official line. Kinda like the whole country.
Any old bike squad members here?
Cheers boeties :D
The Bird


Howzit, again, so the MAICO is an 82, I had a Montesa Capra of about 1976 vintage, so if you raced on 82,s etc, you must be an old fart like some of the others around here.
I once saw a mechanic almost lose two fingers to a Maico in Shrewsbury , England. The mechanic was fiddling with the shops race bike Maico (a 460 or 490 I think) and had two fingers in the exhaust port when the salesman decided to show a customer the compression! And you did not pussy foot kicking those things, I still cringe thinking about it.
ADVRider is like most of America, the official line is the only line acceptable. I work for an American Company so I do know.

Welcome, you're at the right place

What did you do at all those great tourist destinations like Burundi etc mentioned earlier?  I guess not selling holiday timeshares? :lol:
