Well bit the bullet and got my Ls 10 weeks ago and my little Wasabi (Ninja 300) 8 weeks ago. Teaching myself and hate to think what bad traits I am gaining. I had been talking about getting a bike for about 35 years, having been a pillion in another lifetime, but always had sh*t put on me about it as no one else I currently know rides, but now here I am I have done it! Would love a small group to go on weekend rides with. Doing okay but have had a few of what I call biblical moments- mostly when I take a corner too quick, sit up and lose focus. Must admit I have lost my temper a few times with idiot drivers and have had a stand up slanging match after one woman nearly clipped my front tyre cutting inside of me on a curve!!! But I do rally really love my riding and it is the one thing (apart from the occasional incident as above), that I find so relaxing and enjoyable. I really regret leaving it until I am so old to get a license- hopefully I have a few good years of riding left in me yet... P's are the next challenge.
