I'm Dinkyfish, I'm from Scotland and I have had a pair of original powerisers for a few years now. I've not been on them for a year or two now and I'm looking to get back into them (see my topic in the general forums entitled Maintenance for the reasons why).
Although I've been out on them quite a bit I'm far from a professional because a) I'm scared of breaking myself and b) I'm a bit on the light side for my model. The latter is really frustrating because I was right on the borderline in terms of weight so I decided it was better to go for the heavier weight model (otherwise I'd have had to get the kids ones lol) but this means that they don't bend as much as they should so I have to put in much more effort than most people. I'm also only 5' 3" (and a half!) so because my legs are small I find that the knee bars are really wide and I have to walk a bit like I've wet myself
Which can get a bit uncomfortable to say the least!
Anyway, outside of powerisers I'm a big animal person, and currently have a dog and two ferrets. In the past I've had rats, mice, a gerbil, etc etc. Almost all of which have been rescues in some form or another. I'm a pretty easy going person so I look forward to meeting you all (virtually at least) and having a good chat about bocking and whatnot
