thought I should do this since I have a few posts up now.. My name is Tash, I live in Adelaide. I got my learners permit in August and currently ride a 2001 Honda CB250. I'm 29 yrs old. I've been riding motorbikes since I was 13, started on a Honda XR75 trail bike. used to go out riding every weekend with my dad & little brother. fell in love with riding then & am annoyed it took me so long to get my licence!! I am a Honda fan, hope to get a Hornet 600 when I get my full licence. i encouraged my boyfriend to get his licence 2 years ago cause he always wanted one too - he got a ZZR250 to start with & now rides a 2003 Honda CB1300 with Micron exhaust system (looks awesome). my parents were very against me getting my licence since dad had a bad crash when he was younger & is now deaf in one ear. he claims the greatest ever bike is a Triumph Bonneville 1969. since my other half & I both got our licence though he's starting to feel the pull of the road. I'm booked in to do my advanced course in Feb & can't wait. I ride to & from work every day (except in the rain) and am a fan of nice rides through long sweeping corners rather than death rides at 200kph into a cliff...mind you if someone here could get a CB250 to go that fast I'd be impressed!! Well that's me. See ya!
