PostSubject: Hello from North Wales   Tue Mar 25, 2014 10:51 pm

My name is Richard
The mid life crisis has finally bitten me so I bought all the gear (helmet, trousers, jacket, gloves and boots on the understanding that my brain would not allow me to spend this money for nought!!!
I'm just about to turn 45!!
So I put all the aforementioned gear into the car and went back into the shop (Bill Smiths in Chester) and just browsed.........saw lots of lovely bikes........but the black and white Intruder just screamed at me above the others.....I fell in love and bought it.....Have not ridden a bike for 25 years!!!!! NEVER PASSED MY TEST!
The next week I did my CBT, week after that, the Theory and hazard perception test, then DAS training , then Module 1 Test last week.....no problems.....Just got Module 2 test to go then bobs my uncle!!!! North Wales Coast Road here I come.
Really itching to get in the saddle!
Regards
Rich.
