    Hi Everyone,

    I'm not a new member, but I've been gone long enough (living in Newcastle) to need to introduce myself again.
    I love motorbikes, always have. Mum wouldn't let me have one as a kid, so I didn't get my first (a 1982 XL250R) until I was 21, well after I left home. I now have a few; in fact I still own most of the bikes I have bought over the last 25 years or so. Some might say I'm overcompensating. Mum is pretty good about it now.
    My bikes aren't the newest, flashest things. In fact, a trend has been developing where bikes come to me in much the same condition and circumstances as 'rescue dogs' come to those who give them new homes and love them...
    I have a couple of classic jap bikes on club rego, three 80s litre bikes (one with a sidecar) and some off road bikes on which my kids and I compete in Moto Trials events. My wife owns a Ducati (and is also a forum member from years ago), but like many Ducatis, it spends more time in the hands of the mechanic (me) than the owner. Not that it is unreliable, quite the opposite, but somebody has to keep the battery charged and the tyres clean ;-)
    That should do for now - I'm happy to be back and look forward to catching up!
