    Best news ever', transgender support group says

    Australian Transgender Support Association of Queensland (ATSAQ) secretary Kristine Johnson said it was "the best news ever".

    "ADV Australia have around 500 members and it effects about half of us" Ms Nev said. James, Mouse, is well respected in the group and will slide right in with the core Moderators in situ ATM....

    I'm surprised the President didn't make that announcement himself.

    Were you busy or something? :lol3

    I'm not just saying this... the mods in this site are far and away the best mods I've encountered in any site over 20 years of internet forum use, including when I was running one of my own for a few years. For a site with so much traffic I'm amazed. Well done Nev and to all and I guess that first comment also relates to the type of people 'adventure' riders are.

    PS. I'm also a mod on another, unrelated, forum. The mods there don't compare.

    Thanks Nev. Can never forget when I dropped my bike and it hit your 950s and it knocked it over as well. I hope you can forgive me.

    We thought about taking a Segway ride along the Thames (in London) one time... but decided it was safer to leave them on the bike stand, and drink pints in the nearest pub instead... :lol3
