I have just joined and have already received some friendly welcome posts - cheers for that! Anyway, I joined because I just got my L's and am looking at purchasing my first bike and appreciate the wealth of advice available here. I've found a bike I like in the Classifieds on this site but can't post in the thread and can't personal message the seller. I have also read the terms and conditions and realise I can't post pointless posts to reach a particular required post count so I can post on the Classifieds Forum. That leaves 2 members missing opportunities - 1 to a possible sale, and 1 to a possible first bike purchase. Anyway, if there is an easier way I have overlooked, please advise me! Thanks guys.
