Hello everyone and sorry to take so long to write since a member - i always have browsed on this website last few years until i had to join to do a search! I think this is one of the best forum in terms of depth and character available to new and experience riders available! I had my L's and P's in 2000 and 2001 respectively and rode for a total of maybe 4000km in my lifetime until now! Now through a change of marital status (sold my first bike in 2003 for the mortage) bought a 07 cbr600rr with 1700km. Trust me, everyday in between i long to ride and look in jealosy at everybike that goes by. For the beginners, it is always good to have an experience rider being there for you like i found when i got my learners on a Wed (and the brand new bike delivered to me 2 hours later) and going to the black spur (4 days later) with 40 km under my belt. My jaws drop when i saw corners and a friend of mine -Ron, said i will be behind you and just take your pace and don't mind other traffic. Everyone else had gone off into the distance then. Since then i have had the pleasure of being the last guy and following 3 of my friends who just started riding. I understood their emotions! What most people on this forum want to do is help others! Keep up the good work and ride safe!
