I joined several forums and "bike groups" since getting interested in riding a month ago and I just want to say that, as a new member of the motorcycle community, I'm so surprised by how many helpful people have taken time out of their day to answer my questions and even supervise and help me with my riding skills. The motorcycle /scooter community in Vancouver is so much more inclusive and helpful than I could have ever imagined.
The latest person to do this was Ray (not sure what his username is). I met him by way of the Facebook link to the newbie Monday Squamish ride which was posted on this forum. When he found out my road test was coming up he offered help me with my riding skills before the test. Well, I'm happy to say, I passed my test today and I just want to thank Ray and everyone else who puts their time out there so generously for all us newbies.
