Hi from Devon

Post  DaisyChain on Sun Dec 21 2014, 17:46

Hey there,

I'm a newbie rider. I'm a little lost in it all at the moment and just getting to some kind of grips with my bike (we have a lot of learning to do together) but I hope that as I build my confidence and knowledge in my riding and little girl's capability then I'll end up meeting and greeting some of you on the road.

I'm North Devon, just outside Bideford.

Being here is like being permanently on holiday....and now I'm starting to learn that we have amazing roads too Smile.

Where did you go on holiday?

Hi and thanks, Cats really are a great choice, I had a tonne of advice before I got her and to be honest I was looking at cbr's but I scrolled down a website, saw her and next day drove to Bristol to buy her,it was obvious when I saw her. She's a good solid bike with a very playful spirit. Can see me and her being play mates for a long while.Smile

Hi, welcome, I'm sure you and the bike will get properly acquainted fairly quickly.

Yes, you do have some lovely roads around your way - I'd stay away from Porlock Hill for the time being though Wink

Stevecat, you're so right. Porlock hill is horrid enough in a car, my Daisy would have a minor fit if I took her there!

Hi MrNutt, I'm the master of stupid questions and as I'm a typical mechanically challenged female I'll too stupid.....I had to ask what a sprocket was the other week......need I say more!!!! I'm sure you guys would have had fun trying to answer with professional sincerity wouldn't you agree Rosco

Welcome DaisyChain  welcom2ytc

I picked the Cat as my 1st bike too. Apart from a couple of hours of fun on Saturday morning with the immobiliser and a soldering iron, she's never put a foot wrong. Which is more than can be said for me....

Have fun learning, I know I do. Smile

Hi FatCat,

I'm starting to think I've made an awesome choice in bike, not many people have a bad word to say about them. It also sounds like you had way too much fun if you got to play with a soldering iron. Is there no end to the joy a bike can bring

Love mine, had it nearly 15 years. It has seen several other bikes come and go over the years!

Only problem has been a snapped speedo cable...
