    Hey, just been remeniscing about the good times of the past back when the KC was young, and it occurred to me there were a few awsome, awsome members that appear to have at some stage vanished off the edge of the earth in my absence from the forum and the scene as a whole... here's some that spring to mind...

    Adam and Steph from Melbourne... can't remember their handle but damn they were an awsome pair of peeps!

    Craig aka Mafti from Adelaide... haven't seen him post in centuries, and last time I saw him in person was Bus Stop Canberra in '07

    Phil aka Cheeky Monkey/Stompywomp... seemed to vanish from existence not long after either Canberra or Eden.... one of the two?

    Bobby aka 2slow, who's reverse Split parking skills leave a little to be desired! :D

    Dougieboy... maybe I'm just high but I dont recal seeing much of Doug on the forums anymore either.

    KellyH, who brews dark ale that could open a nun's legs. :lol:

    Nads'N'Rossi... another cute couple who are far too nice to have dissappeared into fat air??

    Oh and also... MARTIN TWISTY LEDERHOSEN BRATWURST MELLENCAMP AUTENFLIEGENHEIMER ROSE OMAN.... ARE YOU STILL ALIVE OLD CHAP?!?!?! :D

    Some are still VERY much around

    Craig (Mafti) was at Mt Gambier

    Bobby (2slow) has just opened a bike shop and visits the forum regularily

    Doug (douggieboy) was also at Mt Gambier and after travelling attended the recent Camp Keen

    Kelly (was KellyH now Archeress) visits the forums often to view posts without posting

    Marty (Marty) is often on line

    Bogbeast was Adam and Steps forum name but I have no idea where they are at present.

    I don't know about the others but I'm sure someone else will fill us in.

    Schmo Schmo Schmo, its awesome to see you back on line, without a doubt you provide the most amazing input on these forums.

    Ha ha, I had forgotten about my driving skills nearly backing into that tree...would you believe I recenty drove into the carport at home with my bike on the roof, 5k car damage later and all was good again until 5 days after I picked the car up someone backed into me!

    I look forward to reading about the ongoing adventure that is the life and times of Schmo.

    Maybe it's just me, but the entire forum seems a little quiet of late, but it is getting pretty close to winter so Seasonal Affective Disorders might be getting to people, particularly in the Southern States.

    Hell, some thing's definitely getting to me. I was wondering why my toasted raisin bread tasted so spicy. After eating it, I checked to cinnamon I'd sprinkled on top. Yep! Black pepper alright!!

    Nope in one of my other German vehicles. I was without it for a month as they had to air freight a new rear windscreen from Germany when all the planes were grounded thanks to the volcanic ash!

    Shmeauxey! Good to see you back. I'm without internet at the moment as I've just moved (borrowing time online where I can), but will have the net, skype etc in a week or so hopefully!

    No kombi either at the moment, some random backfiring issues. Where are you nowadays?? Can't be canberra if you've got the net?
