Just though I would introduce myself. I have been reading this forum for about 12 months now and thought it was about time I joined. I have been riding for just over 12 months and got my licence last weekend along with my husband. I ride an RVF400 which I got 3 weeks ago, before that I had a CBR250R which I still have but will need to sell soon. I am a late starter, I was into horses before the bikes, I have been riding since I was 10yrs old and used to do eventing which was a great thrill but had to give up due to a back injury, I still have 1 horse left. But something was missing, the thrill of the ride, so I turned to bikes, I needed something and my husband and I can do it togeather, and I love it. My husband also rides an RVF 400, they are a great, fun bike to ride. Well thanks for listening, I look forward to joining the discussions.
