Hey, I'm new. Since JokerAU got his licence I have been tagging along as pillion on a few rides, one of them up to GinGin and back which was about a 7 hour (?) round trip. Anyway, I'm hooked and love it. The problem is that I'm miniature and as much as I'd love to ride myselef I'm a little worried about not being able to handle a bike, not being able to pick it up etc. On the ride last night (Vic Park meeting) one of the riders (you'll have to forgive my terrible memory) let me sit on his bike, a Suzuki VL250 Intruder. I found it very comfortable, and felt like I might be in control of something like that. It wasn't too heavy to hold up and it was nice and low so I wasn't worrying about not having my feet on the ground. I fell in love with it on the spot, it's so pretty as well! Anyway I'm still more than a little concerned, being so small and all, and having been only driving (car) since August, I don't have a lot of general road experience yet. I'd be interested to hear people's suggestions/opnions in regards to this - though Jason (Jack?) and JokerAU have been helpful already. Looking forward to reading posts etc to find out more about all of this - I' not going to rush into it without knowing a little first.
