Hello all. :) My name is Jon, and I am a Convert...
<waits for the "Hello Jon" response.> hehe

I've been flying dual line for about a year, and got my first Rev for my 30th B-day (27th). I've flown a Rev once before with John B. and fell secretly in love with it.. <Looks around at Dual lines> Can't say that too loud....
So once again, Im a newbie, learning to ride the bicycle backwards, and having a blast doing so. :)
Looking forward to the new years day fly (although its gonna be a soaking wet one) to sharpen up some basic skills.
So umm.... Yeah... HI!!!

heres a couple pics of my new Love affair. :)

So welcome to the Rev site too Jon.

Glad you have seen sense and doubled your lines up.

As for riding the bike backwards, I can not even do a forwards Bicycle turn. you will have to give me some lessons :-)

So jealous about you being able to go to the New Years fly with JB and the gang.

Welcome to the Wonderful World of Revs. It has brightened our lives so much, I no longer refer to it as the "dark side".

Were the photos you posted taken in Bandon Oregon?

Ah, just a quick jaunt across the puddle m8. :) You'll have to make it a point to get up here soon!! :)

I'll give you those lessons if you teach me stick shift in a UK car. o.0

Hehehe! Glad to see you over on the "dark side" of the forum! Woooo Hooooo! :D


Dark and Cold atm (referring to the weather here). Thanks!!!! :)

The jaunt across the puddle is on my wish list.

As far as teaching you stick shift, no problem, you come over here, I will get you sat on the wrong side of a Land Rover and have you driving off road in no time, it is what I do!! Taught Russians, Chineese, Japaneese, Americans, in fact pretty much you tell me a nationality and I have probably had one in a car with me.

You enjoy yourself New Year. hope the weather is not too bad and you feel up to it.

Welcome, Jon.
Looking forward to flying with you soon.

Hi Jon-

Welcome to the family-

You can share all phases of your quad addiction with us. We understand. Posted Image

There's tons of great info here on the forum. If you can't find an answer, feel free to ask. Everyone, here, is happy to share their knowledge and experience.

Have fun flying with the guys from the northwest; they are a great bunch of people, for sure! Luckily, you can learn from some of the best out there, too.

Happy flying.
Laura

Heheheh Had to. ;)

Well Money is always tight round these parts, as you're well aware, so we'll have to see if the penny jar allows it this year. Should cost about $75 in gas alone in the Jeep. lol :)
If not, I may just show up anyhow, and watch from the side lines. ;)
