I thought I would introduce myself as I registered here a couple of weeks ago and might start posting; didn’t want to do so without saying “hi” first.I live in south Croydon, I work in central London and commute every day by bike regardless of the weather, and that is the highlight of my day (especially the journey home!! ). I also ride most weekends for fun.
Been riding for just over 10 years, mostly on a Virago 750 but, last August, changed this for a shiny new Bandit 1250s, which I love. A week after I bought it Unity Ride '07 happened so I put myself down for that. This great day resulted in me joining a biking forum for the first time, thelondonbikers.com (TLB), where I post quite regularly.
My riding was completely changed about 3 weeks ago when I did Bikesafe at The Warren, Hayes, and as a result of that (and an incident shortly afterwards involving a lorry) I am now an associate of London Advanced Motorcyclists (had my first assessed ride with them on 17/5). This has all made me realise what a total noob I am at biking!
I look forward to exchanging views and advice and meeting people on this site in due course - if you’ll have me!!
