    Most people on here are from Ghana, Sudan, Antarctica, Fiji, and Tasmania...

    I have run into the odd American and Canadian on here, but they are a bit weird and few and far between.

    I did talk to a guy from the UK on here 6 months ago, but he was a whinger and got sick of the site and left..

    You wouldnt happen to be from Alberton Sth Africa would you OP?
    Cheers

    A little information behind the original question,

    Good possibility that we might be relocating to the UK (or Europe), so looking to make contact with enough members to ride with potentially in the future.

    And while at it find out about riding locations.

    Hey Georgelza, how are those springboks goin mate, we will beat you in 2013 lol

    I was taking the piss in my thread, i saw you were from Alberton under you avatar, thats why i asked.

    On a serious note, this is an American website, i'll take a rough stab in the dark and say about 80% here are Americans, followed by maybe 5-10% Canadians and the other 10% made up from the UK, Australia,NZ, a few from sth Africa like yourself and a few from other places round the globe.

    cheers mate:thumbsup:

    hehehe,

    though maybe you also from this side of the pond.

    was not sure if the site is European/UK based or USA based/magazine. Clearly cleared up now.

    IMO roughly an area along the I-35 corridor from San Marcos (North of SanAntonio) to just south of the DFW metroplex. Easier if you envision it as from Austin to Waco going South to North--

    Specifically I live in Killeen, one of the cool military cities with a low cost of living where higher pay can go far.
