Hello from Yeovil, Somerset, UK

Hi everyone. I'm new to this forum but have owned my 2010 Versys 650 since September last year. She's dressed in Orange/Black and has Givi panniers and orange hand guards.
I'm nudging the half ton in years (sob!) but never really let my inner child go so I can seem a bit crazy. I actually think I am crazy and have occasional lapses of sanity! Lol!
As it says in the title I live in Yeovil in Somerset, UK with her indoors.
As my handle suggests I work in the aviation industry as a helicopter production and maintenance inspector. I was in the Fleet Air Arm of the Royal Navy for fifteen years and I am a member of the Royal British Legion Riders (RBLR) Branch.
I don't consider myself to be overly knowledgable about bikes nor their inner workings but I'm not afraid to get my hands dirty either.
I think of myself as a fairly relaxed and methodical rider and I don't take silly risks for the hell of it. I may be crazy but I'm not suicidal!
Looking forward to meeting other local Versys riders. In the warmer months I often take a trip to West Bay or Weymouth - hope to see you.

Nige.

and greetings from the great state of Texas. And don't be concerned about the age versus behavior disconnect. I've just turned 68 and I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up. With a bit of luck I'll never grow up.
