    Hey!

    Hey all -

    Thought I'd poke my head in and say hey. Just bought my first bike (and am on the L-Plate thing - which is cool if somewhat annoying)... After 17 years of wishing I had a bike I now own a little Yamaha SRV250. First bike I saw (sort of), didn't get it checked, didn't test ride it, didn't do any of the things that I was supposed to do, but that's Ok, cos Red Baron sorted me out...

    Bought the bike on the weekend, and was so stoked that I had to go ride to brunch AND lunch on Sunday... :-)
    Pic of what she will look like is here: www.meths.net/bike.jpg ...

    So - I guess I might be your oldest newbie rider, but hey! at least I'm on the right road!

    Hey

    Coolness - so many nice people - and I thought that being a Pom would be a bad thing ...

    My girlfriend is already getting annoyed at my ability to just go on and on and on and on about how cool my ride out to Piha was yesterday... Managed to miss most of the rain (which is surprisingly scary for a newbie)...

    Does anyone here know when Red Baron does its club runs? (Off I go to try and find some more in the meets area)...

    Yup that's me. Stopped riding at 22, started riding again at 36. Nearly a year back on bikes now.

    Welcome Yokai :spudwave:
    And I to my motorcycle parked like the soul of the junkyard. Restored, a bicycle fleshed with power, and tore off. Up Highway 106 continually drunk on the wind in my mouth. Wringing the handlebar for speed, wild to be wreckage forever.

    Yeah you really have to watch out for them. Bikes tend to be more aware of nutters in cages as their lives depend on the observation much more.

    Life is difficult because it is non-linear.

    Tally of three nutters who deserved toots on the horn today - and I only rode about 30kms.

    Yokai, look out for some organised rides on here and go on them if ya like, you never know, you might meet a few people who you feel comfortable riding with. If you are going out to Piha on a weekend, drop in and see me at the Visitor Centre - the beemer will be parked outside on most weekends....

    Not by a long shot my friend!

    Welcome along, nice looking bike.
    My goal in life is to be as good a person as my dog already thinks I am.
