  1. Hello,
    I am new to riding, had my licence 7 months and my own bike 1 month. Needing tons of advice and Yoda-like tutelage from experienced riders so I throw myself upon the mercy of the forums and the wizened sentinels who post within. My bike affectionately known as Brutus, is a LAMS Ducati Monster 659 (I know what you are thinking too $$$ for a first bike) maybe it is but it was a reward for myself for landing my new job and it is also my baby (yes I have been known to talk to it adoringly) and I plan on having it for a long time. I researched the pants off first bikes, as well as good bikes for female riders, and it had brilliant reviews, coupled with a great pedigree, and killer good looks (not forgetting the sound of the pipes) I dived in no regrets so far - well maybe that I should have bought it earlier! My avatar is my beloved Brutus FYI.
    So greetings my new friends, I sincerely hope we get to ride together someday :)

  12. Since male riders are far more numerous on nr then women, I would think the real question is are you hot? I can have my pick of the litter you see and I am not satisfied with runts.
