'Sup lads and ladies, I've found myself in a position that getting a bike for weekend riding and leisure is probably the ideal thing for me - i've been a pillion a good handful of times, and I miss cruising around with my housemate on the better days. I also miss having a project, something to work on and be proud of. This in partner with having a commute into the city has been enough motivation for me to really seriously want to get a motorbike -something i've just dreamed of being a 'someday' thing. I figure I'll start off with it being just the weekend riding on a small, older bike (that I won't break down into tears if I drop) while I learn the ins and outs. I know I'll get a kick out of working on it and keeping it neat and tidy I'm at the stage of researching and trying out gear/helmets, building knowledge about bikes and what might be just right for me. Eventually, if it all works out, I'll be on the lookout for something comfortable enough for a commuter, but something I can stretch the legs of and take out touring with friends. So hi! I've got a lot to learn.
