Quote of the Month...

I have dedicated a SPECIAL area on the XT Girls' website to honour quotes from fellow bar attendees. (Note: I'm NOT using the term fellow BIKERS, for that would be in an insult)

In order to qualify for this singular honour - the quote needs to reflect a frame of mind of spectacular stupidity, or sheer pig-headedness.


..I can add to that, f**cking arrogant, chauvinistic, pathetic and narrowminded, but that would get me banned....


I invite you all to compete for the space - although I doubt whether TODAY's winner will easily be toppled. Please feel free to view on our websites as seen below.


(The space WAS reserved for funny, succint and entertaining bloke's quotes -- but I'm having a bad, bad day, forgive me)

Curses!

My work computer can't access your site. And the combination of XTs and girls sounds so promising!

That's because the way the web server is set up that's hosting their website is having an issue with multiple domain names being directed to a singular IP address on their webserver...plus its not very secure!

I got in an Caminado may need extra moderation if he sees his celebrated quip...

Ladies...hope that helps.

Sorted now?

I think it should be sorted now?

I'm hosting it on my own server - and I forgot to log out of the actual folder, after updating it?

What an excellent website Impasto. I really like the graphics. It's one of the most original I've seen, and I totally agree with your sentiments about charity. All the very best for your trip.

My work computer can't access your site but my home computer can.
Nice site, very nice user interface but it is slow to load.

What if the book with the travel story is 200 pages? It will take very long to get to the updates. Maybe you could make tabs to "jump" to a new chapter.

I bet it took a lot of time to build it that nice!
