Hi all! My husband has a 2004 Hayabusa and that is where I got the bug. For years I was the backseat rider. Never driven a bike in my life, wanted to learn, so I bought me a 2002 Yamaha R1 (ebay) early last year practiced some then in Dec. 2006 I took the Motorcycle Riders Course at the marine base (3 day class). Passed, got my license and started riding. I love it! My husband and I are total gearheads.
