    Hey folks,

    Two months ago, after deciding that between me and my girlfriend we really don't need two cars, I sold my WRX, got my L's from StayUpright, and bought a 2007 Yamaha XVS250.

    The day at Stay Upright was the first time i'd ever done so much as throw a leg over a bike, let alone ride one. I instantly loved it though.

    There's still heaps I don't know in terms of maintenance, riding etiquette, and lingo, etc. But for now, i'm just loving the freedom and fun that comes from riding my bike to work each day, and taking it for longer joy rides on the weekend.

    :welcome!: to CR Chadwicko :)

    Dont forget that the Blanket Run is coming up in a few weeks and it is something that you really need to experience! Best of all it is well suited for someone on their Ls.
