Hello everyone, Although my pre-learners course at Clyde is still a month away I have been reading as many threads as possible on this site and searching up on prices of second hand bikes! Never been on a bike before (except as a pillion passenger) but I can't tell you how keen I am to get my license sorted out and to get on a bike, even just for short trips around the 'burbs! I am turning 35 this year, so sometimes I think my mid life crisis is kicking in early maybe? I do like the thought of wind in my hair motoring though, but I'd never get my wife's permission to spend 50K on a two seater convertible, but I do have approval to spend about 10% of that on a bike! Great and information forum by the way, everyone seems to be most helpful and informative. I have learnt so much already from this site. Cheers!
