This will be my first post on the board even though i've been lurkin around here for months. Well i've finally gotten through my course with action and can finally ride around town now. Admittingly, i ride around like a total nub, still slow and not that smooth but i have noticed one thing on the road.... whenever i come across another sportbike rider, they all say hello either by a wave of the hand or a nod of the head. At first i was too concetrated to do anything besides concentrate on the road but now i can at least give a nod of my head. Just wanted to say thanks for makin the road a little more welcoming for a nub.
