Hi. Name's Laurie. I was born in the UK but moved to Japan about thirty years ago. Started out on bikes about forty five years back, beginning with a CB125S, following on with a Kawasaki S3 and a Suzuki GT750. Then married bliss came along, followed by kids, at with point the beloved kettle got traded in for a car.Had a brief return to biking about 25 years back with VT250. Now with the kids all grown up and the mortgage a distant memory I'm back in the saddle with a CBR250R. At least I will be when it arrives later this week. Hoping it will be all the fun I remember it was, and also hoping I can remember how to ride the darned thing. But hey, it's like riding a bike... isn't it???
