I’m new here, and new to bikes! Been driving a car for almost 3 years, but I’m being greedy and want to be able to ride a bike too, for a cheaper runaround and for a sharp kick of adrenaline on my daily commute.
So, while I do know a little about car engines (having got greasy more than a few times under my 1987 MK2 VW polo) I’m very much a newbie to it all, and know even less about bikes so excuse me if I ask some silly questions.
And maybe one day I’ll be in a position to offer advice as well as ask for it.
Thanks in advance!May 19, 2013 at 8:30 am #66140ses310Moderator

Welcome to the forum, I have always owned a car and a bike right from when I was seventeen. I enjoy both in different ways.

Hi and welcome. For the ridiculous insurance costs on cars in the UK, I’m surprised more aren’t taking to bikes.
Have you got a bike yet?May 20, 2013 at 9:39 pm #66145edwardscott_30Participant
I went and collected my bike on Sunday, it’s a 1972 Honda CB 175. It’s absolutely amazing, but the only problem is.. it’s a 175!
The original plan was to downsize it somehow, but now that I’ve got it it seems a shame to mess with it and risk ruining it, so my new plan is to borrow a friend’s 125 while i’m practicing and take my test asap.. Hopefully it won’t take me long to learn!May 21, 2013 at 9:12 am #66146imperialdataKeymaster
Sounds like a good plan. Not many of those CB175s about now, but I do remember them being solid bikes with robust engines.May 23, 2013 at 12:29 pm #66147ChampsParticipant
