New guy, never been on a bike in my life!!!!

Post  smalls on Sun Jun 27 2010, 00:12

Hey all,

In a moment of madness i've bought a 98 thundercat in black red and white. Its been sat in a garage for the last 18 months and when I saw it was covered in dust. But I took a mate along later who's into his bikes in a big way. He told me after having a good look round it needs a service and new tyres and a good clean and if I didn't buy it he would. A good bit less than a grand with 15000 miles on the clock and a micron can.

Now all I have to do Is the CBT, theory, some lessons and a test! Trying to do this on a bit of a budget but still have to buy leathers helmet gloves etc etc...

Not sure what i've let myself in for but after sitting on it for a few seconds I decided I need this in my life!

I no absoloutely nothing about bikes but I intend to learn as much as I can from this forum!

Cheers all, Smalls

Thundercat is a brilliant bike, 15,000 miles is nothing if genuie. Also the Red/White abd black ones are the fastest!

:whoop: yep you got the fastest lol

well done on an excellent choice of bike (and colour scheme great ) mine also sat in my garage for a few months before my test too and the only time i'd been on a bike was the sydney harbour ride in australia but it was on a Hardley so it didn't count Wink You'll soon get the hang of it and when you pass you'll find the 'cat is a very forgiving bike Smile look forward to seeing you at some ride outs before too long then. have fun

Hi Smalls......and welcome to the site.

You're right......you do NEED a Thundercat in your life.
Once you get you've passed your test you'll wonder what you did before!

You're not alone way oop there.
We will nearly pass by on Big Mac and there are a few on here near(ish) to you.

Good luck on the test(s)

Cheers
