New girl from Leamington!!

Post by alicia » Mon May 09, 2011 7:36 pm

Hey everyone!!

I'm relatively new to riding - passed my test a couple of years ago but have only just bought my bike (will never be without one again!) - I ride a CBR 600-F - what do you think to my photo? She had just been washed with TLC last Sunday morning.

I'm really keen to get out and enjoy it this summer but don't know a lot of people to go on ride-outs with. So here I am!

My bike plans include:

touring abroad - up for going anywhere (think I may need to get a comfier bike - I'm sure I can squeeze another bike in my garage - just!)

doing my advanced test this summer (i'm an intesive care nurse so want to be as safe as possible - plus it'll lower my premium ;) )

learn how to get my knee down properly (my knee sliders look far too new)

going out for massive long ride-outs just to have a cuppa then get back on it and ride home again

I love meeting new people...especially those who won't get bored about me talking about bikes all the time!

Hope to meet some of you soon :)

You may all be wondering why I'm on an adventure bike rider site as I own a sports bike....

Well all this talk of off-roading sounds like fun - I want to find out more about it! :woohoo:

Thankyou! Aah yes, Alun told me about this meet earlier - sounds good! Not totally sure if I can make it this weekend, but I'd like to. If I don't join you this week I'll keep an eye out for future ride-outs.
