Hi, thanks for the welcome. There is an old Guyanese joke that where ever you least expect a Guyanese to be you will see a few pop up lol.

Hahahaha sure it would be my pleasure. It's nice to see someone familiar with something Guyanese on the forum. Have you been to Guyana? Or know any Guyanese?
I have been to Guyana once but my first real girlfriend (many many years ago) was a beautiful young woman whose grandmother was from Guyana so I am somewhat familiar. It's always nice to have a member from a new place on here.

Welcome, nice bike.
I had to look Guyana up, it looks like you do not have very many roads for a bike like that.
But then I'm just looking at Google maps.
I see you have a historic landmark called the Peoples Temple Agricultural Project.
Not sure why I thought Jonestown was in Africa.
Anyway, ride safe. (y)

Yea Guyana gets mixed up too often for Ghana lol. Unfortunately we are also remembered/ known for being the country Jim Jones decided to bring himself and followers to and of course we know how that turned out.
With regards to the roads, yea so far not many roads that are suitable for these type of machines but we do have a few. All are paved roads but still pretty bumpy, hopefully that changes soon. Lots of road works and other developments are going on at the moment.

Jones is a bump in the road and a historic landmark now I guess.
Not far from me is the former church of Tony Alamo.
Fenced off and they took the sign down.
I suppose nobody wants to admit they were members of a church whose founder died in prison. :rolleyes:

I'd bet there are citizens of Guyana living here.
Pretty sure there are people from almost every country on Planet Earth here in the City of Angels. (y)

You should confuse people a bit more by explaining that there is also a French Guyana and Dutch Guyana which also has a whole different name (Suriname) but they鈥檙e each a different country and totally unrelated. That is always a good one.

Maybe also tell them that Devil鈥檚 Island is right next door so everyone who鈥檚 read Papillon has an idea what it鈥檚 like.

Hahaha it's definitely a way of confusing someone. I'm hoping to post some pics from a few different places here when myself and some friends go riding. If you hadn't mentioned some of your back story I would not doubt for a moment that you might have been Guyanese or Caribbean lol.
