The motto for a Phoenix summer is the devil called and he wants his weather back. Anyways I wanted to introduce myself. I am finishing a safety class this weekend and will be continuing my riding education programmed rides around the block and in the immediate local vicinity as well as practice sessions in an empty parking lots with some of the more important technique, which for me is all of them . I am a new rider, literally, and I purchased a used CBR 250 as my first bike. I am very excited to be riding and also very cautious as I want to approach the riding arts with respect. I am looking forward to chiming in where I can as well as learning from the vast knowledge of all of you.
