Just thought I would stop by and say hi to those who know me, and at the same time introduce myself to those who don't yetI'm new Hwy 100 Starbucks meat......LOL My name is Darren, 36, recently divorced, 2001 R6, did I mention I'm British, haven't ridden in 18 years, swore blind I never would again after 3 friends died riding, met some folks at Starbucks, and low and behold, what am I doing, yeah I'm having a mid life crisis and riding again. So if you see me on the road, move the hell over I'm still a little wobbly ;), if you see me at Starbucks, stop by say hi. Girls, bring your own bike, I'm not safe to ride with....yet....... LMAO

Anyway, hello all.....

Cheers

Welcome. :twofinger Is your bike the red/black scheme, or black with the red flames? Don't get too addicted to Starbucks, or we'll lose another guy to the allure of sitting and drinking coffee rather than riding.

Red Black, and I've been drinking starbucks for as long as I have been coming up to hwy, so I am already addicted to sitting and drinking coffee LOL.

For the other question, yes I rode back home in England when I was 17/18, about a year and a half of riding back then, an 18 year gap to now......

Oh man the gov. is after you too? Don't get the new 20's they have a tracking chip in them. If you put a tight bundle of them in a microwave and heat them up, they will all burn right over the sensor. If you get a new 20 break it right away and get some old 5's and 10's, they can't track those. I had pics to prove it but I can't find them now, the gov. must of hacked my computer.

Welcome, welcome!
Nice choice in bikes, I must say....I am a HUGE fan of the R6... :) I too, am a newbie on the 6 so if we ever have a chance to ride together, we'll just have to give some distance!!! It's all good. Enjoy that bike!

I guess I"ll never be interested in the Starbucks thing....I just want to ride....

Since Alison and I are girls, does that make us chapettes??? :lol

Welcome to the fold Darren,
It is good that you chose to ride again. I know alomst everyone knows of someone who has been in a accident on a bike and same with automobiles. But funny thing is I don't hear people say I'm going to stop driving my cage. We are a special breed, us motorcyclists.
Do you know of any local happenings such as 2 Wheel Tuesday with many places to go and meet people?
See you around.
