Well, I got a bike a few weeks back, and haven't had time yet to insure it (The fact that I had no liscence impeded me somewhat, also.) Anyhow, tonight I finally insured it, and put 8km on her before calling it a night. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the ride, even though it was cold, windy, slightly wet, and getting dark. I think I made a good choice getting into riding, I guess it only gets better from here!
I'm a happy man.
