Default Back in the saddle

Just wanted to say hi to everyone, I recently picked up a 2002 CBR 600f4i which is in mint condition. no scratches and only 12,000 kms. I hadn't ridden for 18 yrs, since I went away to Univ and needed to sell my old Yamaha to help pay for tuition fees.

After graduation I got married and had 2 awesome kids,,,,, just recently (last week) I came home and announced I had just bought a bike....to my surprise my wife didn't kill me,,,, so now I am back in the saddle and I have been smiling ever since ....wow did I miss riding!!!

This bike is wonderful,,,, I am a little rusty but its all coming back to me slowly but surely....anyway looking forward to meeting people on the forum and welcome any tips you may have regarding this wonderful machine.

cheers

you must host your images somewhere on the 'net -- we can't see your email inbox (and i doubt you want us to)

the only person who has access to your email account (and its contents) is you -- you have to host images in a publicly accessible location for them to be visible to other members. There are some picture how-to's in the New Member forum stickies you may wanna check out.

Thanks everyone........ one thing I have learned is to respect the bike and know my limits,

That being said .... it is soooooo great riding again, also very cool is that upon telling some of my clients I have found out that they ride also. Now we are starting a small riding group which is fantastic.
