Been awhile...... felt I needed to come back home, if you'll accept me ?

I left upsetting a few people....... mainly cobramadness and rollie , I think his name was...
I'll be honest....... if you know me you'll know I always am, even st the risk of being ridiculed.
Feel I gotta make peace with them before I can enjoy this great site (my first internet home)
So here's the explanation......
To cobra......i was gonna send a fuel pump.
I had 2.....i KNOW i did but for the life of me, couldn't find them.
Time dragged on and felt more and more embarrassed that I hadn't sent it. Probably one of the reasons I stopped posting.
Its been so long now that I can't remember if I even apologised to him........i am truly and sincerely sorry if I didn't.
Please accept my humble apologies now.
The longer it got...... the harder it was man.

To Rollie.......i had the rearsets all boxed up ready to go.
I used interface for posting....... the address given was not recognised in the fields I was filling in.
Long story short......... it was a big ballache.
I did try........ even had a problem with Adsuzukiboy but somehow managed to get his parcel to him, just not yours.
Again time dragged on......... again being honest I was ashamed and embarrassed that it wasn't sent and eventually got lower send lower on the agenda.
I actually still have those but are now on my present bike.
Please, please accept my apologies guys.......i don't want to be cast out in the wilderness.

What have I been doing whilst gone sooner of you may ask....
Well..... when I left I was really happy with the mighty srad.
So much so that I wanted to improve my riding...... so bought a crf450r and converted it into supermotard trim.
Well that was a mistake cos over the 2 or more years I've had it......... it's been in the garage more.
Its been so bloody frustrating owning it.
In fact its st the mechanics now ?
So really instead of improving my riding.......i hadn't really ridden in over 2 years.
I've recently bought the legendary k6 1000.
Oh my good God......... it's a world apart from the srad.....

I guess I'll know from the responses I get now, weather I'm welcome back or not and can take a hint.

Stay blessed chaps........i admit with anticipation.

None whatsoever buddy....... money was NOT exchanged........ I'm just pissed at myself for not sending them.
Ada a matter of course I normally send before taking payment anyway.

Hi. I did wonder why a few people were not posting so regularly, not that I`m big on posting!

I can understand the K6. Bought a K1 last year, it got me back into riding again.

Well ... look what the cat dragged in here !!!

You really could have handled it alot better mate , best to always be up front and honest , if your not and leave people to fill in the gaps themselves it's always alot worse.

Your a good guy ... we all make mistakes, I'm glad your back

No worries. Takes alot to "MAN" up sometimes so shout out to you for doing so. Glad to see you back.

PS: That Honda looks like the bizness. Surprised to hear that you're having problems with it. And of course that Suzuki needs no introduction.

Don't sweat it. Just being honest about it says a lot about yourself.

Welcome back

I have no clue what this is about, so you're all good in my book. Welcome back. Enjoy your K6

Well technically you're always welcome back until your name turns pink. Sounds like you're sorry but maybe you should shoot those members a PM too.

And congrats on the new K6

Just to counter this, I had loads of issues with my Carbs and Armi took the time to deliver his spare set to my brother-in-law on the otherside of London to where he lives before I'd even paid for them to allow me to get my bike back on the road.

I'm glad you're back mate, just need a few others back now!

Re: Been awhile...... felt I needed to come back home, if you'll accept me ?

ah man your riding will dramatically improve with the newer more confidence inspiring bike no jokes man..

now they got the world neater coming out. I get updates from Yoshimura USA every day and Roger Lee has that shit eatin grin on his face again so I believe he will take the title this coming season, hard to say how long it will take for BSB, WSB and so on to catch on but that bike is MEAN, seen several track test vids and WOW

I mean Roger Lee is the spitin image of Nickey, no jokes they even sound and look the same but they also have the same personalities as in they can get low or down when things aren't going well, I think we all seen it with Nickey in his last 3 4 years in motoGO, he finally realized like Casey and Ben that they simply do not want English speaking riders on the box so he finally said buh bye, I believe Colin is gone as well?

n e who that shit eatin grin we saw on Nickeys face 2005-2006? yup Roger now has that look and I say he is a very very fast Kentuckian no jokes so I see him putting up a major battle in the current series he is in "American yadda yadda yadda"

I must admit I got a little down Suzuki just letting the mighty 1k go wayward while those um well unworthy bikes were getting all the glory, I see Suzuki coming back for another decade or so! well

but yea man lap times just improve as the technology imrpove with a Gixxer, its built in
