     :001: :001: :001: Firstly Hello every one, pleased to meet your acquaintance.. should you ever travel up to or in the region of the Uk NE3 then give me a shout.
    I live on the outskirts of Newcastle  and very close to the airport funny enough, but a secret we normally keep quiet is that from here you have about 10 miles to the east coast, a few miles north up the road the beautiful country side of Northumberland with a few castles and ruins,  may I say about 60 miles to the west you well on your way to the lake district oh yes, great roads and what a nice trip on a fine day.. 70 miles and you will cross the border into Scotland and yes i am jealous on the scotts but haven the legs for a kilt so just as well ehh..
    about my self ehh , well i dont like the age barrier as still think i am about  30, i wish,  born  in 1962 i am pretty experienced LOL
    married 1 wife and 2 great daughters giving me 4 little nuisances called Grand kids, that was a tough pill i tell ya !!
    Then again the two boys Taylor 7 and conor 4  both like the bike, tayllor normally waits until i come in from work and with a helmet i take him round the block  and can here him yelling "faster granda Faster" got into third last week  he was well pleased..  trouble was Thea his sister wanted the same treatment just aged three !! she sat on the tank and went round the court and was very pleased. . some good potential for future members here i thinks..
    me.. well I like to absorb the countryside and give that awesome engine a thing to think about occasionally but not a mad man. annoyed that i bought the bike to engage in some serious touring and have not done so yet.
    Saying that we did the isle of man 2 years ago as the wife doing my family tree needed info on the Corkhill family ,well they seem to come from the isle of man!! whey hey man, proud of that i am so off we went, well 1st time out on a decent ride for my wife and it was horrendous torrential rain for three days as we toured the lakes, she looked like a Michelin man in the waterproofs but got on with it so credit to her..
    The isle of man was great the sun shined and the classic TT was on even though we didn't realise and even better the route was 200 yards from our B&B  .. great time and a must do for you lot reading this, nice people nice place expensive ferrys though..
    next trip in August is to Caernafon Castle wales, then bristol, Oxford,and Southhampton, rest we are  having work out yet but leisurely trip back after a weeks cruise. yeah cheating a bit .. if you on route lets meet.. all the best. chris p

    Hi and welcome, a trip to the Isle of Man is definitely on my wish list but living "down under" makes it a bigger challenge... I know this is slightly off topic but my wife and I are planning to meet with friends from Yorkshire next year and do a tour of Europe by motorcycle, the cost of hiring is ridiculous so was considering buying and reselling on departure. Have also heard some European manufacturers have rent/buy deals. The biggest issue is in obtaining insurance for the bike, any ideas???    :440:

    Welcome Crisp62  :400:

    I think you will find, like i have that this is a friendly and welcoming forum. Plenty of good advice and tips for the CT owner.

    Sounds like Newcastle will be getting added to my "Want to ride list"
