3rd generation brit brat, here. My G'ma is english, and still has a bit of an accent after 50+ years stateside, and my pops was born in england on a air base. Though I suppose it doesn't really matter to you, as I'm in AZ, Usa. I know there's a few fellows on here from the isles. Maybe they'll chime in soon. Welcom to the forum. Congrats on the purchase of your new bike. What one did you get?

My g'ma and her family are from the manchester area, though she was born in Johannesburg, SA. Her father was in the RAF. My g'pa was in the U.S.A.F. and was all over the place. No one seems to remember exactly where my dad was born, though it says on his birth certificate. I grew up over here, in farmland outside of Chicago, and my dad doesn't remember anything of the UK.

I used to have a XR650R, though I'm bikeless right now.

I'm not English, but I work with people near Darlington (more specifically, Northallerton). If for whatever reason I need to be relocated there for work, I'd definitely get a sumo for my commute! Of course, I'd be quite a bit north of you, Josh.

The division of the company I work is based here in Austin, TX. We manufacture industrial coatings (liquid and powder epoxy coatings, as well as some liquid urethane coatings). We have a subsidiary in Northallerton. I get to travel there on occasion to work with the products manufactured at that facility.

haha! They took us all the way out to Whitby for fish, chips and mushy peas (and few pints of Bitter!) and I couldn't help think about how fun it would be to ride through that beautiful countryside! Even if y'all do drive on the "wrong" side of the road! :lol:

None of those guys at the Northallerton facility ride 'tards to my knowledge. But one guy rides a nicely restored Triumph Bonneville. :bike: I'm looking forward to my next trip over there, but alas I probably won't be able to ride.

cheers!
