Post  Earandir on Wed Aug 05 2015, 13:52

Hi everyone, my name's Luis, I'm 29 years old, and I'm a new Thundercat owner, which happens to be my first bike (although I have a few thousand kilometres spent on the army bikes )..

From what I've seen, I have a lot to learn in this forum, because Thundercat owners aren't really active on the foruns in my country...

Yes she does! Only 20k kilometres on the clock too, and full stock (apart from the sliders and the top case support), so it was a good deal! green smile

Yes, we are lucky about the weather, I used to go to work on my bicycle everyday... Now I get a bit more sleep and get to work less tired Laughing

Thanks Paul, at first I thought burgundy red didn't suit the Cat... Then I saw this one for sale and completely changed my mind!

Thank you Chris... I've only had the bike for about two weeks, so I haven't really had the time to discover some good roads to take on two wheels... I did went to Serra do Gerês, which is one of the largest natural reserves in Portugal, has some nice roads and breathtaking views... There's also a big bike meet every Sunday on my city, so I have a good place to meet other riders... Also, I have 5 more bikers on my platoon, so I'll learn the "good" routes in no time Twisted Evil

There are a lot of good places to visit in Portugal, there's actually an anual ride called "Lés a Lés" (something like "top to bottom"), which starts here in the north, and then leads south throughout the country, and it ends in Algarve (southern region of Portugal)... I'm hoping to take part in it in the next couple of years, because it is an excellent experience gi cheers
