Oh Hai! I'm a chick on a bike
Keep getting referrals here. 'bout time I joined. I know a bit about all you from reading things here and there about the forum. So in return, here's about me:
I am in my mid 20s and have a wonderful time riding all around Michigan, usally the whole thing in a weekend... just for kicks. I work at a bike shop in Grand Rapids, Michigan called "Treads & Sleds". I love it here they've always been good to me and now I'm employed here so it's even better.
I learned to ride on an 86 Honda Interceptor 500. Then bought a 2001 ZX-6R on eday. Rode that for awhile, and about a year later I bought my bike from "a little old lady" who sold me her 2006 GSXR750 to buy a 'Busa from me - go her!
I aspire to turn my Gixxer into a tracck bike and get my old ZX-6R back from my friend. But that will probably be years from now as I haven't got the money to get on the track... once on the track I'll never turn back. And that's expensive.
I'm currently building a website for to be a resource for women sport bikers. I want it to be a tool that women can use to learn to talk the talk, walk the walk, and ride the roads. I don't want it to be another forum, but a central location for lady riders. So far it's been fun, especially since I'm more of a computer geek than I am a rider.
I am a web developer, or rather was before I started selling bikes for a living. Someday I'll go back to that world... maybe.
And since I can't ride year round I'm a ski instructor in the winter time. Drag a knee on the pavement, and a hip on the snow!! Weeeeeeeeeee!
So that's me. Glad to be here.
