Wow - great to hear from you Ian.
Some of the old crowd are still around. The forum isn't as busy as it used to be but we're planning to take it forward.

Are you still riding your Falco?

It's funny - I was only thinking of you today. We had a street fete and barbecue today and I was chatting with one of the old guys who I hadn't realised worked at the local pit. I don't know many who have worked in that industry - so you came to mind.
Strange coincidence on the day you pop up on the forum.

Well hello Ian! I was wondering where you'd gone... Nowhere, it would seem... Anyway welcome back and very glad to see you again. I think Howard is still about, but he doesn't post much these days, and Ken sold the Falco a while back, I think.

I've had a quick search.
It looks as though HowardQ last posted in Feb '17 and Falken in Nov '11

..... so, unfortunately they're no longer regulars. I know that Howard had health issues (I think it was his back) that were causing him difficulty in riding.

Yes, it was very sad about Pete. He'd been battling health issues for a very long time but eventually they caught up with him. He was a great guy.

Yes, look forward to seeing you around a bit more. And really glad you've still got the Falco - yours was the US 'Zorro' model wasn't it? Always fancied those. Mine will be 10 years old in August and I can't imagine ever selling it.

That's the one. Mines 13 yrs old now, don't ride as much owing to two grankids and a caravan, there's not enough days in the Weekend.
