Hi all, got back into riding after a small 30 year leave of abscence. Got myself a 05 1100 V-Star Silverado and loving it. I live in the Gatineau/Ottawa area and would welcome anyone that would want to ride in our area.

Hope to see you on the road someday.

Ride safe.:)

Welcome Corsair ! :)
Isabelle.

There is big news in Australia. In a small village in France, I can't recall the name at the moment there has been a discovery in the attic of an old home. Over 3000 glass photo negative's of soldiers taken by a local photographer in WWI. Most of the 3000 photos are of Aussie Diggers (Soldiers) and it is considered a very important find and many families here are going through all the photos on a website to see if they can see any of their relatives, 16 have been identified. My Grandad, I never met him as he died many years before I was born, was in the Australian Light Horse and served in France from 1917 to 1918. I will have to look at the photo's to see if there are any of him.

Isabelle.

the Australian Light Horse
Aussielad, did it occur to you that Isabelle may be unfamiliar with the Australian English usage of "horse" terminology?

Let me help:eek:

Light horse:



Heavy horse:



Saw horse:



Sea horse:



There. That should clarify things.

Please note that I have thoughtfully included the present and past tense ("I sea horse" and "I saw horse")

No need to thank me, Aussie/Isabelle. It's the least I could do...:D:D:D

Sorry Isabelle, please look at a new thread in 'General bike talk' and it will explain. It is very big news in Australia. And from what I have seen also for France, America, Britain, Canada, New Zealand, India and a host of other nations that fought in the war.

P.S. sorry about Springer, he is working more at the moment and gets exited when he hits the forum:D
