Well You not going to get a newer newbie or greener biker.. but here I am.

After a life long dream to ride and enjoy the road I have finally made that decision.

After months of looking and research I finally went and bought the bike I wanted .. Suzuki Intruder M800.

I dont even have a bike license yet! I go for my CBT next week and start my DAS next month. In three months I will ride my M800 but it is the dream and I will do it. 

So here's a hello to all of you as I start out on this journey as green as they come and all the help I can get!

Cheers

Good to have you on board   Justyn, you won't find a friendlier place to while away the hours. Good luck with you CBT and DAS, keep calm & you will breeze it. If the  shtf don't worry just do it gain. I'm not far from you in Swindon & hope to see you soon after the dastardly test has been put to bed.
We were all green once & some will always be that way, welcome to the site, enjoy your bike & this site. If we can help you in any way will.

Justyn, &

That's a great dream to have ..... take it easy through your direct access training, & don't let anything dishearten you.

As Dave says - we all start from the same place .... & all have the capacity to learn & enjoy motorcycling.

Good luck with your training & tests !

Alfie, Morgan, Skid, Dave,

Thank you for the welcome and words. 

Yeah the sword might be a bit much but may need the shield to start. Helmet may work!

Cheers all

I wish you luck with your bike tests, when they are all behind you enjoy your motorcycling and take it easy, over confidence and over estimating your own ability as many do, would be  your biggest enemy.

All the best I hope it all goes well for you.

Not aware how old you are but I was 36 when I started riding, your never too and we all wish we had done it earlier. Just to let you know I failed first time, put me foot down on the u turn! but went home downloaded the specs for the test chalked them outside my house and practice practise practice 3 weeks later breezed it. so don't ever give up hope. 2nd best thing I have done in the last 7 years (1st being getting divorced!)
good luck for Saturday relax they aint gunning for or trying to fail you.

Justyn the CBT is no more than that 'compulsory basic training', it's a day to listen, to learn and enjoy without any pressure. It is a day of compulsory basic training, no a pass or fail.

Hawk,

This is strange but I am 36 now, just got seperated... yeah good times. But really looking forward to it and determined to get it. Great idea on the chalk lines. Thanks for the encouragement, realised what I'm doing last night but this is something I want.

Cheers

if you have driven before the theory will be a breeze all the road signs are the ones you have been looking at all the while you where driving, the only part that's a bit confusing is the virtual riding video as you come up to a row of parked car you have to click for each car as a danger not 1 click for the row of dangerous cars, if that makes sense
