Since I started riding (which wasn't that long ago) 3 of my friends have gone and got their lisences and bikes, and about 6 more coming in the next few months. Now, I'm not trying to say "I'm so kewl cos everyone is trying to be like me". I know the trend of motorcycling is growing anyway, but I like to think I had some small influence on their interest in Motorcycling. I too came to Motorcycling through the daisy-chain since a few members of my family also have, or have had bikes at various stages of their lives. Just wondering if otheres find the same thing, that their close friends also become intersted or if you've taken up riding because of a friend or partner.
