Hello, Been lurking this forum for the last few months. 32 years old, live near the alps and the utterly stunning highways around them. I'm about to start riding a motorbike next week, I have a Kawasaki ER-5 lined up. I was originally going to take advantage of the undeclared area license and buy a Z750 as my first bike, after having nightmares etc. along with a mate telling me "not a good idea dickhead", well lets say I reconsidered. I'll be riding to work and not just for fun, so I guess I've decided to start riding in the right season. I'm still looking forward to it. Anyways I'm sure I'll be posting my opinions everywhere shortly so if I'm in agreement with you in one of these threads, it's time to reconsider .
