Well, I'm just going to say hello and give a short introduction. I just signed up for this board a few weeks ago. I've been a long time lurker... floating around as a guest. From what i've seen, this board seems pretty sweet. Some cool things going on. To me this seems like a close community.. but not too close. My name is Sean, and I have started my path to the Darkside. As my buddy Mark likes to say it. He's the one who told me about this site. I don;t know what his handle is. I never even bothered to ask. I've always wanted a bike. I know years ago I said I would get one. Now is the time where that dream can come true. I got my learners about 3 weeks ago, I'm taking a skills and traffic course through Vancouver Island Safety Council. They came recommended. My Classes start March 3rd.. And end on the 28th... Weekend courses. I'm already super stoked. I even have my gear, reason being it was liquidation prices last month. I jumped onto that opportunity. I'm looking to start early this season and get in some good riding. I'm planning on buying my bike at the end of March. I'm looking at either a Yamaha r6 00-03, or a CBR 600f4i 02-03. I've been suggested to go towards the CBR since it does have better balance and more of a beginner bike. The again, it will all depends on how it feels when taking it out for a test. Naturally I have a lot to do this month, by the end, it's gonna rock! So hello to all!
Post Script. I gotta Say I was just blown away about the guy getting his bike stolen, Ghetto Fabulous then people from the board getting the guy who stole it. That's just too cool. Props to the Heros, to me that shows respect. In my books, respect is high. Cheers!
