    Well, we all know what overly-obsessive fans of anything turn into. Kinda disturbing to think we have a stalker in the Tenere threads. Come out of the closet Rick. Stop being a cloaked fan and buy that Tenere already.

    This inmate has been dating my daughter. He is a KTM owner.:eek1

    It's much like that movie "Guess Who's Coming To Dinner". You youngsters
    won't remember. Story of a white family who's daughter brings home a black
    fiance for them to meet. Back when such things were not very acceptable.

    I paraphrase the movie add,

    "Rick and Connie are a couple whose attitudes are challenged when their daughter
    brings home a gentleman caller who is a KTM owner."

    The second language must be Catalan, it's different from Castilian but similar at the same time. Speaking these five languages, you must speak Portuguese also, I'd think you'd want to speak Cristiano Ronaldo's language. :evil

    Good thing the KTM is retired by forces beyond my control(someone wanted to replace the clutch more than me, it got stolen a few months ago). Soon I'll be seeing if a WR450 is up to task. We should make a deal? I'll throw on the charm and see If I can get your beautiful daughter to fall in love with me and move her out of your house. In return you give me your tenere? I need more than a day tripping thumper. Good trade for all parties involved ha ha

    You're right :clap

    I’ve been in Portugal several times and with the Portuguese people I speak Spanish, they speak Portuguese and we can maintain a decent conversation, quite similar languages, but I don't have any interest to speak with Cristiano... :nono
    In Catalunya (north-east of Spain) we’ve got two official languages: Català and Spanish but as we want to be an independent country we’ll see…. :evil

    Let''s see if we can do it in jaumev speak...

    Git Old Ray much tease. Say he no bike black. Wife has he. Female. Bike blue.

    If bike be black then name be 'Broke Back Tenere' for suggestion of movie people
    who boy like boy. Bike blue so Ray Git like girl. Much.

    Dafoole bike black so maybe name good for his bike be 'Ravashing Raven':ymca
    Many avatar see and think "Good choice".




    The bottom line is you're off the hook this time. No one is teasing you.
    We all love you, but in a non black bike owning way.:wink::D
    Ask your wife, she can explain it much better.
