Just got my first bike. Super excited!
Ive ridden dirtbikes a bunch in the past and all I can say is nothing couldve prepared me for the adrenaline felt pulling a new bike out of the dealership. Stopped at a left turn yield lane waiting for the light I could feel my heart beating at full throttle. Aha. Literally the biggest grin under that helmet.
Anyways Im in SoCal. Santa Barbara to be exact. If there are any riders from around here let me know! At least one of the biggest reasons I traded in my car is that there is very little community. But the minute you have a bike there are all these people with a mutual interest and, at least the people Ive recently met, are super nice and excited even if I have a baby 250r.
Well this is my introduction to a forum I looked at well before I even knew I was really going to buy a bike. Im glad I can justify being a member now!
