It's only me!
I've been here a little while already before realising ... how rude of me ... that I've never introduced myself so; "hello" everyone!
Came late to motorcycling (although it's in the genes) and have the ambition to ride "every county of England, every country of Europe and every continent of the Earth" in the next few years. Got the Pyrenees and Alps out of the way in my first summer of riding last year and planning Germany-Poland-Ukraine-Romania-Hungary-Slovakia-Czech Rep. in the Spring followed by Denmark-Sweden-Norway-Finland-Estonia-Latvia-Lithuania-Russia in the Summer of 2009.
Lived in Paris for many years but now back in London (although feeling like a foreigner in my own country - even picked up a strange accent whilst I was away). Self-employed (ANIMATED ENTERPRISES
), into rugby (Wasps & England), sidecar motocross and collecting tobacco cards. I suspect that I'll be a 'net' beneficiary of this site in the short-term but hope to become a 'net' contributor before long. Don't be fooled by the name; it's just a name! Had hoped to come to Ripley in June but have a client commitment in France that clashes so won't get there now. Looking forward to meeting with some of you out on the road and thanks for the advice so far.
