  1. Hello all. New to this forum and only been riding 18months. Took me to get to 48yrs old and almost empty nester to start spending my money on what I want, and am loving riding on two wheels. Now, don't be hating on me if I tell you I'm riding a Vespa 250GTSie at the moment. I'v found it a great way to begin on 2 wheels with just the throttle to worry about, but I promise I am getting a real bike when I grow up. I haven't decided though yet if I want a racing type bike like a Kawasaki Ninja, or a cruiser like a Suzuki V Star or even a Suzuki Boulevard. It's all very new but so much fun, and I'm learning so much from helpful people like the Netrider forumites. We're all sharing the passion.

  6. Hi Lyn. Welcome. Question for you - how do you get rid of the stragglers who won't leave home? :)

  7. Well it helps to live in a regional area that provides very little in the way of jobs or study etc for the kids. They HAVE to move away from home. I'll give the youngest a little bit more time in the nest for now though.
  8. Thank you all for the welcome and for all the advice you give those of us still on our training wheels.
  9. Welcome aboard Lyn! Have fun!
