Greetings everyone! been browsing the forums for a few weeks but this is my first post. Got my licence first shot on 7th of February and picked up my brand new 2006 honda VTR on the 12th. Having never riden a bike before has made the new experience all the more exhilarating! Wow. Anyway 2 days ago i came off the bike going around a corner, front wheel went out from under me i think it might have been all the gravel and broken glass on the road but who knows. A few scratches and bruises on me but i scatched my baby! Noooo!! Little sore and embarresed. But i got back on and kept riding! Then yesterday i think i finally began to understand the thrill and utter enjoyment of ridng. I went down the Great Ocean Road with a friend of mine who owns a Blackbird (thats a nice bike!) those corners are amazing and the salt air smell just cant be beat. I now where ill be spending the rest of my days off. Probably a little long for an intro post but im so excited and i feel alive!!! Daniel Murray.
