  1. Hi there.

    First post on these forums and after a few days of browsing and a lot of reading, I am really enjoying this place. Nice job.

    Not much to say, other than I have been meaning to get my licence and get into bikes what seems like eons ago. I think it is well overdue!

    I will be looking at getting a VTR250 as a starter and wish to move on to the Duke's from there...passing the VTR down to my wife if I can talk her into getting her licence as well.

    The Triumphs & Nortons look nice too, having had agrandfather that use to race Nortons in the good ole' days.

    Anyways, I am rambling, let the games begin!
