Introducing Storm_B0y

  1. Hi All,

    Just dropping by to introduce myself.

    I'm from Sydney's Inner West.

    Been riding dirt bikes since I was a little tike.
    That would be 27 years ago now, but never ventured into road bikes due to my obsession with turbo charged cars over the last decade or so, plus my old man reminding me of how many times he was wiped out by cars in the 60's everytime I uttered the words "road bike" in his presence.

    Sold my car, selling my investment property and was looking for a new toy, when my wife suggested I get a bike.
    Never thought I'd hear those words come from her mouth.
    So once the house is gone I'll be going shopping!

    Will have to do the learner thing which is a little embarassing at my age, but I reckon it'll be worth it.

    Cheers for the awesome site. Has helped my research enormously.

  2. Holy fuk!!! Your wife SUGGESTED you get a bike?? That's awesome, great to see you got away from cars, once you start into some serious riding you won't look at cars the same again (IMHO anyway)...

    enjoy that sydney business...
  3. Yes she did suggest it, and wants to learn how to ride one too.

    Believe me I was in total shock too.
  4. double win.

  5. your only 32 bud, you will find blokes over 50 doing the same course, enjoy your new life :)
