A new guy from LPL

#1 Post by Wildebeest » Sat Jun 13, 2020 5:49 pm

Hi,

My name is Mike. I am a bit of a heavy set guy. It might look funny, since I am a proud owner of a Suzuki GN 250. :smt003

Hey, you ride a bike, that's cool in anyone's world, whatever size you (or it) is!
Remember, when you are dead, you do not know you are dead. It is only painful for others.
The same applies when you are stupid.

Small bikes are cool!

Liverpool. Sorry.

I am nostalgic for Ginny. I had to take my driving test on one of her sisters :smt002

Besides, small bikes are brilliant for a little runabout

I had a Yam RXS100 for my first 3½ years of riding - went to France on it with all my camping stuff. It was a really sweet bike to ride apart from all the gear-changing!

I actually want to go to Spain on Ginny at some point. After all that crazyness blows over, I mean.

I love my ride! And now that I started tinkering about with it, I love it even more :)
