Hello from Dorset

Post  AndyE on Thu Jun 09 2016, 22:45

Hi all,
Based in Poole, Dorset, and hadnt ridden a bike for over 15 years until last weekend! Got myself a 98, almost totally standard T'cat having liked them from the day they were released.
Just been out for almost 3 hours this evening, finding my way around and building up confidence slowly but surely. My previous bike was a VFR400, and I have to say, the cat is much more suitable for me. Softer, more comfortable, more stable, more confidence inspiring, less hard work on the wrists and shoulders too!

Maybe see some of you around, stay safe.

Hi Andy, And Welcome aboard great Grand to see you have found us left thumb up

Welcome back also to the fold of biking. Tiz like a disease innit, once bitten and infected, yer hooked fer life green smile
The Cat is an extremely good choice to return to biking with. As you have found, very comfy, very forgiving and very frugal with the juice to boot Thumb

Short notice I know, but if you're up for a meet there is the BC meet up this very weekend (10th to 12th June) link Click Here, I'm sure they'd all be delighted to see you there for the ride on Saturday if you have the time.

Failing that, there are a further two meet ups in July. One in and around the Cotswolds of Oxon between 15th & 17th link and the Second a little further afield in Scotland (Big Mac), link . . Either of which you could day trip or go all in for the weekend and join the fun honk

In the meantime, have a right good snoop around the whole site and all its forums. Hope you get to enjoy your stay with us  wink thumb up

Cheers
