Welcome to the board!

Good to have more female riders, or females who want to learn to ride. The ones who get cold receptions are the ones who have no aspiration to do anything other than be an ornament on the back of someone elses bike. Quite annoying.

If you want to learn to ride your own though, you've come to a great place! Just don't take any of my advice and you'll be set!

Welcome (standard greeting)
Learning quickly is ok so long as you're safe about it and key in on the basics. Don't push yourself too fast too soon, wouldn't want you to get hurt. And of course, have fun

thankyou girlies.....and chris
yeah well aware of the leg humping factor not what im interested in .. i mean i have no problem wih hot boys but not the leg humping stereotype chasing variety
i cannot think of anything worse than being stuck on the back of a bike ... how uncomfortable!
i love bikes its in my blood my mum and dad rode when they were young and my uncle races bikes
they're so much better than my boring ass nissan im not doing this on a whim it was a whim 18 months ago but i was wayyy too young

Sound the horn, a wannabe leg-humper has entered the room. I need theme music... something that warns of impending doom, like "Bum Bum Buuuum."


Oh yeah, almost forgot, welcome aboard. BTW, do you Aussies use/have punctuation or does that cost extra?
