Hello...? (First Post)

Discussion in 'New Riders and Riding Tips' started by Slider, Oct 16, 2004.

  1. Hey there!

    A fellow biker at the lights referred me to this site... its great to see so many people 'learning the craft'.

    I've been doing a little learning (the hard way) myself! I've had my Suzuki RGV 250R for just on 3 weeks and already she is in the workshop...combination of inexperience and shoddy roads :cry:

    Now you know why I used slider as my username... :wink:

    Anyway...hopefully I will be back out on the road in a week or two :LOL:
    Look forward to meeting and catching up with you guys soon!


  2. Welcome and Enjoy!
  3. Heya,

    Welcome aboard. Somebody at a set of lights referred you to this site? Now that's pretty good advertising :D Anyway everybody learns from mistakes so I'm sure you will be fine.

    Have fun and stay save,

    Lisa :twisted: :p

  7. Welcome, Slider! :)

    Don't let that little mishap put you off... it's called a learning experience and once it's behind you there are plenty of great roads in front of you.

    Great to have you with us and hope you're back on the road soon!
