Hello from Whitby.

#1 Post by Barrie » Sat Jan 12, 2019 2:25 pm

Hi everybody.
I'm Barrie, I'm 27 and I live in North Yorkshire, Whitby.
Figured I would have a Google for a decent motorbike forum as my other one is fairly quiet now and I miss the chat.
I passed my full license a few months ago after several long years on cbt only.
I currently have two bikes, both were built ground up from various spares and bits I cobbled together over time.
Ones a 1991 Jawa CZ 125cc, lovely fun little thing.
The other is now going to be my everyday bike, my ex army Armstrong MT500 - just getting the engine back in for it a first mot under my name (despite having owned it for 9 years!)

So hi. Anybody from my neck of the woods?

Welcome to the forum, you might want to put your location in your profile, as this post will eventually get lost in the annals of time.
