Default Hi from the UK

Hi guys,
have only been on the forum for about 24 hours and received terrific help.
I'm retired with quite a few interests, so much so that I don't get on my bikes as I would like. They're listed in my profile if anybody is interested.
Nice to be on here, very helpful guys (and I'm sure girls as well) hope I can contribute something.
Ian

Hi Dan,
I see you've got some interesting items too. My dad lives in Barriere and my brother lives near Fernie.
Passed through Revelstoke last May, have done over the years. Usually fly into Calgary and take a rental car.

Hi Guys,

thanks for the welcome PT.

I used to live not far from Warr's, on the New Kings Road, in London. Used to see the Harley boys gather there for a coffee, it was the first time I had seen a Harley, this was 1959! Those 50's Harleys were some terrific looking machines. Warr's were the sole importers then.

Not sure when I will be in Canada again, although I've planned this for 2014, it could be earlier. I will make the effort to stop by, thanks for the invite.
Ian
