Hi Everyone!

I'm new to this board so just wanted to give a shout out to all the fellow BC riders here.

Just wondering what everyone's experience level is ...I got my F4i last summer but would still consider myself a beginner since I didn't really have too much time to ride.

I'm hoping to do more riding this year so hope I will have the chance to meet some of you.

Cheers,
Dez

Hey, welcome aboard! :flip

I've been riding for about the same amount of time really. I rode a '85 VFR500 for the first 2 years of riding, didn't ride for 3-4 years, and then bought my R6 last summer. So not a heck of a lot of experience really.

I've been riding since '74 but that's OK, the others don't hold it against me......... :D

Don't sweat it. The big rule on our rides is that you ride your own pace. Those in the front that may pull away at times always stop at major route changes to let the pack gather up so we don't loose anyone. You'll fit right in. We've got quite a few low time riders now.

Sup man, long time no see! Yah, for sure let's go for a ride. My friend is selling his 2001 GSX-R 750, check out the buy & sell section if you're interested.

let me know once you get the new ride!
