Hi everyone, Well the last five and a half years have been a roller coaster, and I'm far from getting off the ride. After 26 years in the Police Force (Detective, so go easy on me) I hit the wall just over five years ago and decided to take a breather for a couple of months, but then was diagnosed with kidney cancer. The biggest, and best kick in the arse I've ever had. Had the kidney taken out, retired with a whole new perspective on life. Seen a lot of carnage, and swore you'd never see me on a motorcycle, however I've always been envious of motorcyclist, so I decided I don't want to die of 'Someday' disease, and with my 50 year old wife, at the ripe old age of 59 and a half purchased our bikes. 11 days ago we were issued with our L's! Another first today I found Netrider, what a great site. Thanks for letting me join you, and I wish you all safe rides ahead.
