    (I look stupid, but F. it.... )

    Hello Every one, my name is Samuel F. and I come from France, though I have been living in Glasgow for the past four years, and still here for a few good ones.

    I'm a gamer ( yep, video gamer. As in I play a lot of video games, and board games as well ), a photographer on my free time ( Inner Thrills ). I use to work in Fashion, in Paris, but I grew tired of it. ( not my natural mentality ).

    As of last Saturday I finally accomplished my dream, I got my bonnie. A stunning T100, black and Cherry, named bad Betty. ( The Sonics ). I baptised her going to dundee Sunday. Great Ride.

    If anyone feel like minded, and would like to join some day to meet and ride, I'd be up top meet fellow riders. In the mean time, please help... I cannot get that god damn steering lock to work ! ( literally covering my bike in chains and locks today... )


    Cheers guys.

    Thanks for the help, and Dave, pour info je viens de Bretagne, ( i come from Brittany ).

    Thank for the welcome guys, I appreciate it.

    what annoys me with that steer lock is that the guy showed me but I was literally 2mn away from owning it for real, and riding it, so I did not really listen to what he was saying.... oops...

    Hi and welcome to the forum Samuel.
    Nice bike - don't worry about the steering lock I never got mine to work and you can come very close to breaking the key off in the lock.

    Damn, this is really not the first time I hear about that, and yeah the key, is clearly week.

    At least I got 2 sold Secure silver devices on my wheels and one of them is either tied to a MCS only parking rail, or a steel fence.
