It was ten years ago I signed up here, in the past ten years...
On the road:
I've owned four bikes, and have tried out many others.
Done over 250,000 kms of riding in the last ten years through four provinces and 14 states.
Met countless fellow riders - lost a few riders, friends that will always be remembered.
Watched the pros race their stuff at Isle Of Man, Donnington, Laguna Seca, and um... Mission.
On the BCSB:
I've read many posts and laughed, commented on some threads, and started a few new threads.
Miss the drool, but loved it when the Ride Reports category was added.
To new riders: take a motorcycle training course don't start riding without one. Try small groups, big groups, and solo rides, ride at your comfort level - remember the ride home is just as fun as the ride to get out there.
To old riders: throw away the GPS and learn how to read maps. Have fun enjoy the ride, all you can do is ride your best and hope you make the right choices out there on the road.
Thinking about updating my avatar because the R1 photo is ten years old now...
Thanks BCSB members for keeping me entertained while I'm not on the road!
