Well gang, after 25+ years as a rear seat accessory ... I have finally done it... got my learners a week go... and spent all day today becoming aquainted with my VTR250.. and facing that big scary thing called the road...complete with traffic... I have been a lurker on Netrider for ages... but now that I ride myself AND have a bike... its time for me to introduce myself... My name is Bron (aka Xena.. dont piss me off.. I am a Warrior Princess.. ) Finally decided that its my turn to buy expensive toys with two wheels... pity that I will only be able to ride every 2nd weekend when the little person in my life is with her daddy, but hey I'll be off my L's in no time, and she is just hanging out to jump on the back with Mummy.. Enough for now, and hope to meet some of you at my first coffee night soon.
