for girlfriend, still have
Greetings from a lurking luddite (never posted anything before, so bear with me).Matt, 52, currently farming in southern New South Wales (that's a State in Aust) between a couple of insignficant places called Tarcutta and Adelong (sheep, cattle, native grass seed, 4000 acres) married with one professional student daughter. Employees - me, wife and 4 Kelpies (sheep dog breed) - I'm very much at the bottom of the pecking order with wife and dogs fighting it out at the top. Done a few things at the same time as farming - journalist, technical writer, farrier, horsebreaker, showjumping trainer, mechanic, professional student (took me a looooong time to get a couple of degrees) shearer, environmental revegetation, etc.Currently run a Guzzi Lemon 1000 which is gradually being reduced to its component bits as I delve into the 'bargain' I bought a few years ago.Lovely things Guzzis, nearly as primitive as a shovel but prettier.
I live in Elwood, Ks. 2 woods that don't float Natalie and Elwood.
Another Wildgoose newb.My name's Pieter, I live in San Diego. Been riding since the ripe age of 5. I have and had lotsa bikes over the years, mostly Harley's but also a few euro machines, (BMW, Triumph, Norton, Ducati). By day, I'm an electromechanical engineer and I wrench on bikes in the evenings and weekends.I recently aquired this '72 Eldo. It does run but needs tuning / transmission / clutch work.

Ohhps already posted and did not introduce myself.Name: Rudy MullerLocation: Cary, IL but lived in a few different places (Switzerland untill 21, Canada, Quebec and Ontario untill 29, New York, New Jersey and now in Illionis since 1994.Age: 45Never married but got custody of my son (almost 9 years old) and do have one of those things that sit in the car next to you and make a lot of noise..... ummmmm yeah Girlfriend. (she gets made when I tell her that to :) )Occupation: Machinist, tool and die maker, but in the last 2o some years all I did was install and repair machines in the packaging industry and sit on my rear in an office too much. Hobbies: things I can do with my son, like BMX, Tae Kwon Do, love any kind of racingif it got wheels and makes noise I will watch. Camping especially at Road America. My first "accident" on a motorcycle came about at the age of 4 month, my dad took me and mom for a ride in the sidecar and of course it was time to show of his driving skills to his first born. He popped the sidecar up in the air and mom was strangeling me. At 7 I got a little moped looking thingi that had a running motor, then a 50 cc bike with 10 and soon I borrowed some bikes from Dad when he was not home. He found out most of the time and he was a beliver that if you do wrong you get your butt spanked, as soon as my rear healed we tried again :)The first bike I owned was a Zundapp 125 six days edition boy what a screamer that one was. Honda XL 125 and then had some Yamahas XT 600 and 660's, Yamaha FZR 600 in 91 my first new bike. When I moved to the US I sold that and soon after got myself a Ducati 900SS. Sold it 3 years ago and now will get a few older bikes from my dad, Guzzi TT650, a 72 Ducati 250 this is acctualy my sons bike. A Benelli 250 don't know the year all I know it hardly ever runs and when it does it goes really really fast. This will be a project for me and junior, we modify it to take to the track. And last but not least my dad's modified Universal with sidecar this is the bike he used to race with some 50 years ago.Long story sorry.Having a blast on here and look forward to get to know some of you better over the years :)
It is like I am transported to a place where it is just me and bike, no other problems can intrude. I will probably have this one for a long, long time.Old Head
