Hi all, I’m reclaimer or Geoff, I have a Yam FZ 750, that i love, and I live near Aberdeen in Scotland. I hope to be dropping in on a reasonably regular basis. I work peculiar hours and shift patterns as well as having 300 kids (Well, perhaps not that many….just seems like it!)I enjoy working on and riding on my bike and over this winter I am currently rebuilding the engine and ‘freshening’ up the rest of the bike. If any of you people live in the N.E. of Scotland, let me know.

Welcome to the forum Geoff. Pull up a chair and make yourself comfy…..
LOVE IS GIVING SOMEONE THE ABILITY TO DESTROY YOU, THEN TRUSTING THEM NOT TO.
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, But rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, VODKA in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming…….WOO HOO, WHAT A RIDE!!

Hiya mate and welcome.

Jeez, thanks everyone for the great welcome. I only found this forum by chance and I’m well pleased I did.
I’ve had this FZ since March, I threw the other one I had up the road and totalled it. I bought another ‘cos I like the bike so much. I’m nicknamed reclaimer because I use ‘revamped’ second-hand parts as much as possible on bikes (Check me out at Ebay, always buying bits!!!!) I also build the occaisional PC out of second-hand parts.
I have always had bikes since I was 16 way back in 1967 (I know….Old Fart!) and have never had any time without one. I’ll put up a list of bikes I have owned soon, the good, the bad and the ugly!
Catch you all soon. [:o)]

Thought that would get you all on the go!
My Dad rode bikes, as does all my family now. Me-fz750, the wife Kawa Z1, my son a fireblade and my daughter a suzi gsxr 400. My other two daughters (3 and 6) are into the ‘electric’ m/bikes.
my Dad’s last bike before he died, was a a bridgestone 350 gtr, which is in my loft totally stripped and stored. He bought it brand new and was awful hard to catch on it.
I’ve owned numerous bikes, I was never much into british iron, but had various dealings with the old faithful in those days, a bantam 125 d1, james commodore 250, 250 golden arrow and the original rocket three.
I still have a morini 3 1/2, in a state of restoration, and have owned at various points of time the following: honda benly 125 (in 1968), honda cb72 and cb77, cb450, the original cb750 and cb750 f2 (sohc), cb 500-4, cb550-4, cb 500 twin. Suzuki super six, hustler, kettle and gs1000. Kawa z1 (now the wifes,)kh250 s1, kh500. Yamaha yds6 and 7, 350lc, fz600, fz750. There are others, but i can’t think of them at the moment(old age ) I’ve had an escort engined trike, heap of crap but great fun!
I fancy a descent trike of some description, but I’ll have to see what happens in the coming months.
