Anyone currently residing on "the rock" interested in meeting up? I see lots of Sporty's over here. Also, anyone looking for registering their '99 & older bike from the states hit me up. Just went through that painful process and will give you all the info for the low easily affordable price of nada.

I was there in '73 to '75 with a Honda 450. It was a pain to register it back then.

I recently left there... April of 72.

Kind of miss the place though.

I saw lots of nice brat-style sportsters in town there, but I doubt many of those guys are members on here. I don't remember seeing many on any of the bases.
