new here, new to riding

so one of my friends who just got his bike taught me how to ride it in a parking lot recently, and im hooked.

so i thought id join here and start reading around, probably wont do too much posting at first : , but will be reading and browsing until i can buy my own bike.

yeah, everything i have read so far has been not only very educational, but also interesting to read. ive been reading in the new riders section. i think i am going to go to the DMV and get my permit tomorow afternoon. maybe my friend will let me do some more riding on his bike after that

Welcome to SBW!


Great idea, reading as much as possible. Don't be afraid to ask q's, even if you're not riding yet. What sort of bike does your friend have?




In God, we trust; all others must provide data.
