    Is Magnus old enough to sign up yet?

    I bumped into him in Thurso this summer for about 3 minutes and he was not as I'd imagined...

    How was he? We’ve got an office in Thurso, might try to find a reason to get there one day.

    Only two months late with this response but Magnus was very very helpful and tried to get us back on the road again (mate's bike died on the NC500). I thought south Scotland would be a jump from civilisation but it's nothing like up there, there is something nice about being bloody miles away from everything though...
  • So I’ve logged in for the first time in a while, must have had a spoof account at some point because my username has changed... or I signed up with a work address when I was pimpin gimp. Who TF knows. Anyway, any of the actual old crew about, and if you don’t now what UKMB is, you’re not who I’m talking about.

    Does anyone remember a guy called Gonch? He may have even been around on MBUK... I can't remeber as it was so long ago.

    Nicklouse posted on FB that he'd sadly passed away recently.

    I wonder if I was banned at that point or not...

    Thought I better come back and have a look at this place since I started riding my mountainbike again.

    Nice to see some reminders that however old we get you can always find someone IRL from the MBUK days. If anyone is doing the NC500 hit me up.
