  1. Hi all,

    I have just joined and this is my first post. I got my L plates on Monday and have spent the last few weeks pouring over websites agonising over the right type of bike to buy. I know there is a page for questions related to that elsewhere on the forum so i will be a good boy and limit myself to the relevant pages for that.

    By way of background I am a 34 year old lawyer, married with two kids in the burbs. I am getting a bike primarily as a car replacement to commute to work and save petrol and parking costs. It is also a fantasy I have always had but never satisfied as people always told me I was too boring to be a bike rider. I will show them!

    I'm interested I getting to know more about bike riding and the community at large primarily as i actually don't know anyone with a bike.

    See you round!
