With a name like that you must be "From up North" Tell you what- you start riding South and I'll ride North. If you get your feet wet- We have missed each other.

Great to see another brit here- but these Colonials like pics. Think they have seen enough of mine so Take the camera and get some pics Posted.

It was too hot here and I had too much to do so decided it was a good day for riding. I was home become the monsoons cut loose.
