Hi folks I'm a new rider who just recently got his Ls. The Mrs had to re-sit the Stay Upright course (as her Ls expired while we were overseas) so I went along and did it as well. As someone who had only ever been on the back of two bikes (both Harleys) and only ever ridden a quaddie (on the roads of Santorini in the Greek Islands, no helmet, whilst drinking beer - law enforcement doesnt seem to exist there) I can say now that I absolutely love riding and can definitely see what all the fuss is about. Shouldnt have bloody waited 30 years to find out I guess. Im still technically bikeless (although im regularly riding the Mrs' 250 Virago) and looking to buy something ASAP. I'll make a post about this in the Learner's League area as I have a few questions I hope you guys can answer. Anyway, looks like a great forum so I'm glad to have found it.
