Old Girl new to Netrider

Discussion in 'Welcome Lounge' started by ZanZibar, Sep 14, 2012.

  1. Hi, I am new in here but have been in the world for a long time. I have not been riding very long though as I am a late starter. I started riding at 54. My first bike was a Virago 535, and my second and last is a Virago 1100. Both were small enough for my short legs to get over. I love riding, but don't do enough at the moment. My best ride was across Australia to WA and back, about 8000 kms in total. I have joined Netrider to have a browse, learn and maybe contribute.

  2. Hi! I must be around the same age as you ( I got my learners when I turned the big 5-0). I ride a Virago 1100 too! Great bike, I love mine!! Lovely to see another lady rider on Netrider, AND one who rides a Virago 1100 as well!!

  18. Welcome to NR!
  19. Thanks all for the welcome. I am the ripe old age of 67 and still riding, but not as much as I would like to. I live in Canberra. I have never been to Zanzibar (with a little z). They wouldn't accept the first part of my name so I had to add my last name to it.

    I just love Viragos. My first bike was a 535 and the 1100 is my second and last bike.
