These are credits, nice things people wrote on the former site.
It’s been saved from bcozz-multiply along with other contents, which we’re hoping to publish in the future !
I once said “is this the road to nowhere” meaning you got lost in the maze of info and goodies !
We will try to bring back as much as possible, and more, on a bit more structured website 😉
On the way back having some problems, inexperienced, hackers, lack of time and more, which caused a wobbly return of the site.
But I think we’re on the right track now, cross my fingers !!
Counting on your return and on adding stories and info about everything what has to do about our bikes!
greetings, your Admin, (against his will) 😉

Vladimir Saygakova, Timur Ibatullina and Andrey Sarmina,

in which yet not there were never researchers from Russia – either in the tsarist time, or in the epoch of the U.S.S.R., or in new Russia.”

We are getting support from the highest places, even in Moscow!
The vast wealth of experience owners have sent in is invaluable, we have about 1000 years of experience amongst our members.
It makes it all the more worthwhile to keep going with this website, bringing us all together.
Meeting fellow enthusiasts on the internet from all over the world, even better, in person.
The highlight for many is riding to a rally and standing around a bonfire and having a good yarn, even if it is with sign language or just having a beer ~ it’s all too good!
Peace and progress to you all!

But most of all, to our dear wizard Catweazle for this current site. We all appreciate your efforts John.Hey Cat, thanks for adding that photo of Trev, hadn’t seen it before.
