    Turneropedia - beginer's questions

    Hi,
    I'm just up to enter World of Turner and I was wondering if there might be little corner for beginers like me to ask silly questions...

    Why "Homer"? What is it refering to?

    Cheers!

    Please exceuse my bad manners...

    In my mid-thirties, flat Middlands UK based, total beginer with FS bikes but with a little bit of exeperience with HT.
    Ivan for all my friends and mates. Interesting thing... When I was registering on mtbr.com lost one letter and therefore came as IanMTB

    Not much to say about bike because still do not have it. But this saturday going to Oxford to pick up 2005 HL Spot frame that won on ebay a week ago.
    Hopefully till spring would be able to try this out in combat.

    Cheers!

    Congrats on the upcoming new acquisition!
    Be sure to post a pic of your new steed.

    As the others said check out the FAQ above and you'll see plenty of info including the history of "Homer".
    There are lots of characters here. Don't take anything too seriously as folks get bored and like to pull each other's chains.

    Newbies get one search free answer : Here's the link to the [url=http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.php?p=1786229#post1786229]Homer History[/ulr]

    Cheers!

    Cool, welcome! I am by no means the welcoming party, but I've been here long enough to know how to approach these clowns. By introducing yourself first you have opened the door for the most informative of the bunch to get to know you. That will be important if you plan on sticking around. Congrats on the new spot, your gonna love it!

    With my mainly dry and sarcastic sense of humour I'll be probably able to cope...

    Quite a few Brits on the board ands a few like me and 6th Element who grew up in England and have been transplanted to the NY/NJ area. And believe it or not there are a few on the board that actually get sarcasm.. but there are also quite a few that don't get it unless you put just kidding or a stupid emoticom after your sarcastic comment......which totally defeats the purpose.

    All true, but we also have to deal with more pairs of forks questions now.

    True, English humor is a challenge... you guys really screwed us when you wrote "No Backsies" on your passports.

    heh... I can say that I'm not Brit by birth, but by place I settled down...

    You can call me slightly tamed barbarian from wild, wild EAST

    But if somebody got problem with it I'm sure it is because his mother was a hamster and his father smelled of eldeberries...
