  1. Hi all, my name is Jeff (though the username probably already gave that away). My wife and I are about to get our L's and to be honest, I'm pretty excited. Neither of us have ridden a motorcycle before so it is a completely new experience for the both of us.



    I'm 32 and my wife is 43 (not a typo) and probable should have taken this step years ago but, better late then never. I look forward to learning from the wealth of experience and knowledge that is found in this community and hope that I shall be able to contribute some of my own in the future.

    We recently purchased a second hand Suzuki VL250 to learn on and it sits patiently in our garage for us to ride. Can't wait for the opportunity to take it out.

  2. A double welcome, then. For five years before my wife fell pregnant with our first child we rode everywhere together; although that was over thirty years ago and she no longer rides, we remember those years with great fondness.....
