Just registered here and I've just come to B.C from Aberdeen Scotland not long ago and I've always been a huge fan of motorbikes, but because of the appaling state of the roads in the U.K and the weather in my particular area i always deemed getting one to be too dangerous and highly unpractical.
So could 'yall fill me in on a few things (i'm a total newbie to bikes so don't laugh! Lol!)
1: What would be a good size (engine) of streetbike for a 20yr old beginer just starting out with a budget of about $5000? I'm not big on speedy cos i'll be a bit of a woman (no offence to any lassies!) on the road with a bike untill i build up a GOOD bit of confidence! So just something practical reliabul and of cource nice looking!
2: Whats the general state of "riding" out here, i.e how are the roads, traffic, accidents, attitude towards bikers in gen?
3: I've heald a full valid U.K car drivers licence for almost three years now and still need to change it to a B.C one but how would i go about gettin a bike licence?
Also I've always wondered how those riders who ONLY have a bike get there shoppin home and other stuff like that!? Lol!
Cheers for bearin' with me there guys, and any help/advise anyone can give me would be gratiously recieved! I really want to be a part of the two wheeled comunity. Had enough of four! Lol!
BTW i just realised this should have gone in the new riders catagory! Oops! Sorry 'bout that! Lol!
