Hi all, I guess I came a little late to the party; though I rode dirt bikes as a kid, and enjoyed it very much, it somehow never really occurred to me that it was something I should or could do on the road. Cars, cars, fast cars, faster cars, karts, but no bikes. That changed a couple of years ago when I bought a 125cc scooter for commuting (to avoid using the thirsty V8 or pubic transport), and figured I might as well do the licence test on a manual bike. It ****ing ruled. Today, I took delivery of my first bike, an '02 F4i. It, also, ****ing rules. So, hello Netrider community! I've been lurking for a bit, and learned a lot. I reckon I'll learn a helluva lot more.
