    I want to say thanks to Curly who contacted me a few days ago and ask if I would like a Classic bike guide issue 189 January 2007. It has a fantastic write up on the T140 TSX Eight page write up. He posted it and I received it today. He refused any payment and paid every thing for me. How terrific is that. I am sort of taken away by his kind thoughts and help. I don't really get like this but I am lost for words and can only thank him for every thing. It doesn't ever happen to me where a brother helps me and takes all the cost himself. Thankyou Curly you have found a soft side of Joe McDonald and I am so very greatfull. I will enjoy this mag.
    Regards & God Bless
    Joe.

    I can empathise joe....
    Small random act of kindness can really blow you away and leave you speechless....

    If anyone fancies showing me some random acts of kindness at next years GMU in the form of jamesons whiskey I will show you just how speechless ( possibly legless and very vocal really ) I can get...

    Just a thought. .

    It's Karma in action Joe.
    Repayment for when you very kindly sent me those pannier supports & wouldn't take a penny for them or the postage.

    I had a very similar experience with @Kenbro recently as well.
    It's that kinda stuff that restores my faith in human nature mate :)

    Yes I rarely feel like this but I am at a loss. I spent all my life and barring my Mum people have always abused any kindness I have shown. Yes I am blown away.
    Regards
    Joe.

    Sorry MrB,
    I should have added you to my list of great people on here. That have been good to me. Those mirrors were a bargain. Not to mention the freebie bits :)

    You're bang on the money about there being some top people on here. Nothing like any forum I've ever used before! :grinning:

    I also owe a thank you to @chiari1 He's another top geezer :grinning:

    Thanks mate, you're very welcome. But still not as good as those that send stuff to others for free and refusing to be reimbursed for postage.

    Its great and I am taken back. Yes you are right there are some no quite a few users on here that go beyond the call. You to are one and yes that's what makes this a very special forum. Got me thinking now we should start a topic to say thanks to the ones that help and stand out.
    Regards
    Joe.

    You've done that with this thread mate. Just change the title to something like... "A thank you to forum members that go the extra mile"...

    I have to say this forum is great. I have been here a few months now but only chip where I have any input worth sharing IMHO LOL.
    But it does appear to be a very happy upbeat place.
    Long may it stay this way :):)

    Yes I hope that aswel. There are so many special people here. And this time I don't mean the asylum. People here that want to help each other. Funny that people we never met or maybe never will and they care for us. And you know everyone's opinion counts and makes this place what it is. And it does not have to be motorcycle related.
    Regards
    Joe
