    Hi everyone, first post and very very new to this so please be gentle, as above. Just bought a Trigano tribute 550 approx 2 days ago, picking it up in around 2 weeks time so learning fast !

    So about me, 56 years old, just separated from my wife, who wouldn't let me have a van, so now I can and I have, so a happy man and a solo traveller.

    Retired and still walking ( just ) TT and british championship motorcycle racer, ( 1980's ) love cycling, training, so want the van for wild camping, mountain biking and any type of adventure, while my aged body can cope with it !

    Looking forward to some great fun in the van and meeting some like minded people.

    Regards
    Paul

    Welcome

    :BigGrin:Enjoy your freedom! The very concept of someone "not letting" me do anything legal is abhorrent and I wish you all the vey best in your new lifestyle. :BigGrin:

    newbie

    Welcome aboard! Look forward to reports on your new purchase.
    If you are feeling really adventurous, why not throw caution to the wind and come to Morocco? I think there are 3 other solo travellers going
