New to motorbikes

I'm 50. And going insane. So last July I did mods 1 and 2. Having driven class 1 hgvs for over 25 years I thought it was long overdue.
My partner thinks I'm mad.
So I bought a blade cos a mate at work has one and rates it.
Only it got pinched. So I got another one. A frankenstein hehe...(thx iandoohan) but I don't care a jot.
Cos the bikes are therapy. No I don't rag it cos having driven defensively for years I apply same philosophy to the bike.
But such fun.... no traffic queue no bubble. Just the elements and speed. And a lot of letters on my driving licence.

Re: New to motorbikes

sad for your situation with the Erion two-niner... but quite glad you were able to get another and be out in the elements soon.

...and welcome to our beloved .org

Re: New to motorbikes

I'm trying to upload your pics to this thread, but I'm running into problems that I can't explain at this point. I'll keep working on it, but if they get you fixed up, maybe you'll be able to before I do!
