Re: ALL NEWBIES SAY G'DAY HERE THREAD

Cheers mostro; u will be pleased 2 hear the Duke scene is kikkin here n now; more people are getting "L" permits than u can point a pointy thing at. Matey sez the "cento passi" is good but overpriced (3000 euro`s)...but as the snow is melting off the high passes in the alps, it`s time to polish the helmet! FYI- my other bike is a cb125 ; known as the RUNT-RYYYDER. If anyone is coming over this way soon, there is a local posse that will look after youse maaaaate`s

Wachya name: Chris, but most of the DML refers to me as Syd or who??

Wachya ride: a 95 600M Monster.... which is in 1000 bits atm.

Wachya do? I do plenty, but i like to race karts for  ;D and ride bikes for ;D& 8). My job is a maintenance engineer for a company called Marriott (hotel chain).

Wachya think? I think too much if anything... but I feel my chick needs her own bike.

"Maintenance Engineer" - that just means u have a selection of hammers...
;D ;D close but no, a 12" Stilsen and an ol flat head screwdriver. If the job is water related, its just silicone...



But I don't actually do much hands on stuff, im one of the 'point and delegate the obvious' desk jokies. - Chris

Here is me!

Name: Bek

Ride: '03 Monster 620ie - was yellow, now pink n silver (her name is Giovanna, or GG (for short))

Do: Working hours = Sales Admin for Campbell's Soup; training for City 2 Surf; visit Frasers to work out what i'll buy next for me or the bike
Do: Outside Working Hours = build businesses, crochet rugs, designing my next tatt, sleep, drink.......

Think: Hmmm.......why watch the news n get stressed when you can watch The Simpsons!! (my activist parents are coming home from the Ukraine next week for a visit so I'm getting ramped up for their return)...........no-one will ever pay you what you are willing to pay yourself..........pink is my favourite colour (what a surprise).............. hmmmm...Family Guy is on...brain is fading....capacity to think independently is gone.......

Does your GF work mostly with guys or girls?

I support a team of boys/men so it's not too catty - they're more openly competitive than being nasty n bitchy (boys are much better to work with than chicks). Apart from the stress, sales is a good place.....bonuses.....freebies.....'work conferences'.......
