Anybody still around from 2000ish? I haven't logged into this site since 2002 and I probably haven't touched my bike since about that time either.

It's funny to see my avatar and bleached hair which was the trend 7 years ago. I'm now a multi-national corporation business professional. Talk about what happens over time.

Anybody remember the flash animations I made back in 1999? I just uploaded them to a site again if anybody wants to take a look and remember way back then!

The Squid

How to wheelie

Drop me a line if you remember me, let me know what's new and what's happened in the last 7+ years. I'll drop back by to see any messages when I get the chance.

I got on here because I was showing my girlfriends daughter bike video's on youtube and saw some terms we started back in the day on here. I was hoping to find bike stories I posted back then but it looks like anything over 6 years old was purged. I remember logging every bike story I had on here, to bad I can't read them now.

Amazing. :smile:

I will pull it out, maybe in the spring. But I'll probably be putting it up for sale. I might take it for a ride or two, but my new toys are boats. That's about the time I stopped riding as well. I just bought a 28 foot cabin cruiser over the Summer. I'm looking for more family oriented stuff.

Not to mention if I was in a bad bike accident I could risk my future and career.

My youngest brother got into bikes. He has an R1 right now I believe. Brand new but hasn't done any mechanical mods, just superficial mods.

How's everybody been?

Rhathid~ I wish I could say that I've left and returned but sadly I can't seem to break "the habit". :frown: Try as I might I'm always here. Maybe an intervention is necessary? That or I swear if I reach 30,000 posts I HAVE to retire. :laugh:

BTW, there's nothing wrong with R1's: :waytogo:

Okay, you guys are causing me to want to ride again. This kid down the street has a Busa, but there's no way he'd know I know anything about bikes.

The issue is, I have way to many hobbies so I have to give something up if I want to do something else. I'm to A.D.D. to stick with one thing. :smile: I don't even have enough time for the hobbies I'm currently into.

For instance, this is my next hobby...

Notice the display.




And to be honest, unless you put a bird into a dive or do something very crazy, there's no adrenaline factor.

Mirage, is that your R1 or just a decked out promo model, because that thing looks bad.

I noticed Gixxie is still around and has a fan base. I remember when she was just getting into bikes.

Another member who has been around here way too long :blush: The flying is interesting, that is something I have had an interest in but the time/money has never worked out. :frown: Good luck on whatever you do, I know riding is what I will be doing until I physically cant anymore...

I seem to recall the handle.

Glad you're having a good time Rathid, & that life is treating you well.

Rhathid~ Yes, that's my "One". It's been a blast to own/ride and even though it's going on 4 years old everything about it still makes me smile. I think you should get back into riding. Hell, if for nothing else it's got to be cheaper than flying, no? Here's another pic to sway your opinion: :wink:

I'm here but 'blksprintst' back in the day. It good to see you posting up. Nice hobbies ya got there! I'm partial to boats myself and completely understand the "family oriented thing". I bought a 20ft Stingray 2 years ago and we love it.

Welcome back! :applause:

Nah, Mirage took a bunch of pics of this sweetass R1 somewhere & pops 1 up from time to time 'claiming' it to be his. But living off the coast of Antartica, he really wouldn't get much use out of a reall motorcycle. His real hobby is surfing with the penguins! :grin:

:lol:

I was here in '02, too.. A hundred years later. But even then I got faint glances on the 'rillaz activities. Yet I don't even know anymore who was one.
