New to the forum

Hi,

New here, but not to computing and the Mac!!!

I own a Rolex TT Daytona and a TT DateJust. Love the forum, and will post pics soon.

Cheers...

Allan

Welcome to TRF, Allan. Glad you could join us. Stick around and post often. This is a fun madhouse, so if you're a little crazy, you'll do just fine here.

LOL! Nope. That would probably be "Little Red Corvette".

More like Rolex Prince, of course.

Will indeed be posting pics shortly, after a trip out of town for a few days.

Thanks for the welcome, all!!! Appreciate the kind words. And yes, I am as crazy as a loon!

Allan

Indeed I am, Rev. You live in a great area - lots of golf and trees. I live in a community that decided long ago to keep the trees and the natural surroundings. Love it!!!

Thanks for the great welcome, Rev and all. I appreciate it. As promised, I am preparing pics of my two Rolexes (or would that be Roli?).

Oh, and BTW - I ride a Harley. Will post pics of that as well.

Heh heh...

Are you heading to Bike Week? My cousin Bill will be down from NJ and he is a huge Rolex / Panerai enthusiast. He also is a Harley owner. Almost every year he wears his 18K Daytona with a black face. That watch is BEAUTIFUL and a must have for me one day.

Anyways, if your interested at some point getting together and shooting the breeze, let me know.

Not this year, Mark. I have to tell ya - after you've seen one, they all start looking pretty much alike. What a jaded biker am I!!!

I DO still like BiketoberFest in October. It winds up being a lot closer to my personality, and VERY close to my birthday, so a great time to celebrate. Interestingly, I don't wear a Rolex down there - I have a couple of Harley pocket watches that I wear on a watch chain in my jeans "watch pocket" (of all places). I get a lot of great comments on that, don't ya know!

OK - here are a couple of pics of my Harley (Evo Springer Softtail). Gotta love it!!!





Cheers...

You're a Welshman, eh? I have friends in Llansanan, near Denbigh. We visit quite often, and just love the country. We have many friends in Scotland, England, Wales and Ireland and never tire of visiting. Will be going back in 2008 for a few weeks.

You can't go wrong with it. It's reliable as anything and if you want to, it can be hopped from mild to wild.

You bet! I've done some small "hopping" with the Vance & Hines two-into-one pipes and a jetting kit to increase performance by about 10 HP.
