    Panter Just call me Chris...

    On this forum I mean.

    I spend a lot of time reading posts, doubled over with laughter which is good. Very good in fact, I do like laughing, its good for the soul :biggrin:

    Not only that, but as a newb I get great, accurate (I assume :biggrin:) advice, and get it quickly too.

    And (yes there's more) I feel welcome here.

    I see from the threads that a lot of you go back a long way on C+ (don't really know what that was or the history of it) but its not in the slightest bit cliquey.
    I've only been a member a short while and already have loads of posts. Says a lot I think..............................

    Anyway, thanks all, long may it continue <raises virtual glass>
    Cheers :biggrin:

    Panter', mate I judge a good thread post' by the fact that king Pat Stevens - posts on it...

    And if Queen Arch does too, then good luck will surely come your way :biggrin::biggrin::biggrin:D:biggrin::biggrin::biggrin::biggrin::biggrin::biggrin::biggrin::biggrin::biggrin::biggrin::biggrin::biggrin::biggrin::biggrin::biggrin::biggrin::biggrin::biggrin:

    BTW - the a fetching young thing' you;ve got ther as your avatar explain dear boy/man/thing..

    N.B. = the C+ thing was quite simple = bike mag; called C+ got a forum going and most of us where on it and the vibe here is pretty much the same BUT a bit older with reference to the age of the posters on here :biggrin: - I'm quite young btw :biggrin:

    Aw, we're glad you're happy here. I really value this forum too..I've learned so much, and it's also fuelled my passion for my bike, which has given me many happy hours over the summer!! It's a good place.

    I must admit it was a post by "King Pat Stephens" on the hardboiled egg thread that fuelled this one, as once again I resumed the fetal position and crunched to the floor weeping with laughter at reading the reply to an already very funny thread ;)

    RE my avatar, i've had a lot of interest in that :wacko:
    It's pro cyclist Lynn Gaggioli apparently, and blatantly ripped from the Bikeradar "girls in lycra" thread. She's rather lovely isn't she.

    Thanks for the C+ explanation, simple really :biggrin:

    And of course there's the really great thing about here, as you say, motivation to get out and ride :biggrin:

    Once I can tear myself away from the keyboard anyway......................................:biggrin:

    I've done that. Was In Tanzania cursing the fact that after paying for an hour of internet I had only been able to veiw about 5 threads, it's so damn slow out there......

    And my post count suffered, I fell off the first page of the leaderboard, took me ages to get back.........

    I'm flattered to have been mentioned as an arbiter of a good thread! I'm only sorry I've been absent a bit recently, and may be more so in future, unless I can get a job with internet access and not much work....;)

    Glad you're liking it here, Panter:smile:

    a job with "online" in the title helps too ;)

    glad you're enjoying yourself here, panter.

    btw, you can get round the swear filter, so you don't have to say 'king pat stevens; say what you mean! :smile:;)

    Initially I was convinced your avatar was a self portrait and was rather impressed. Gradually it appeared that you were possibly and then, later, probably male. Sorry.

    btw I've never made that type of mistake in real life - THANK GOODNESS.
