Greetings to those more experienced than I. I am one of the late MLC (Mid Life Crisis) new riders. I have bought an intimidating Yamaha V-Star (compared to the pre-L course intimidating Honda 125's) which I am very much enjoying, or at least will be once I stop stalling and wobbling. I bought my second hand Dainese boots from Jim, a very knowledgeable and experienced rider who referred me to this forum. It looks great. I hope one day I can contribute as well as receive advice. Pretty much all I can help with initially is guitar and music advice. Sorry.
