I'm happy to see that there is such an active online community for riders, especially here in BC. I heard about this site from a co-worker over the summer and have just finally got around to doing something about my interesting in Sport Biking.
I've always had 2 problems when wanting to start riding. I'm so rookie, very cautious and uneasy about getting on a bike (even though I really want to). My other problem is that I stand 6 feet 6 inches tall. I'd basically written off sport bikes completely because I figured I'd be just too tall. My co-worker mentioned that there wouldn't be much of a problem with my height. I guess what I'm hoping to find out is some real life advice from experience of the riders here to find out if this is just something in my mind that I need to get over before I can get on a bike or if there is a legitimate road block keeping me from riding?
