Hello all, just a quick introduction really. I’ve been living in Brighton for a few years now. Grew up around bikes (my Dad was a cafe racer in the 50's and a motorcycle copper in the 70's) but I was never allowed one. The first time I rode a bike ('77) was the last time I fell off. Since then I’ve had the obligatory scooter on holiday.
A few years back I was travelling India and I hired an Enfield and fell in love with the open road. Alas, I forgot about the joys of travelling on 2 wheels until last year when I caught a re-run of the Long Way Round (I can hear you groan…) Strange as it may sound, it had never really occurred to me to go travelling by bike before. So, in a hurry, mid-winter, I bought my current bike and proceeded to pine for safe riding weather - whilst I have covered many miles wearing little more than sun glasses, I promised myself I would wipe my memory clean, start from scratch and learn to ride in a way that would keep me alive. Anyway, Spring sprung and I was Googleing motorcycle travel books (and having my mid-life crisis - which is still in full swing) and found Uneasy Rider (I can now hear a sigh of relief…) and that’s how I ended up here. So you see, you can say what you want about EM & CB, but they brought me to the HUBB.
I joined an unofficial Yamaha owners’ website (the most official of them) and found it a solitary place so I’ hoping for better things on HU!
My plan is to get this pesky test thing out of the way, get a 650(ish) and head down to Andalucía in August. I’ve got a hell of a lot to learn in a short time so I’m hoping HU will help out and prove a good companion en-route.
You'll find we're a friendly bunch, and you'll there's a ton of help here too.
Be sure to get yourself to the UK HU Travellers Meeting - in two weeks! It's an amazing chance to meet up with over 500 travellers, and hear from over 60 world travelling speakers. It's the biggest travellers meeting in the world.
But we're filling up fast, only 50 or so spots left, so get registered quick.
Thanks guys - I'm certainly going to try to make it to the meet. Just gotta plan my month out. One of the things that attracted me to travelling lots was NOT have to plan my months (when I didn't have a 9-5).
Currently I'm still on my TDR125 - hoping to get my test out of the way in the next couple of weeks. Can't wait - we've done a fair few miles over tha last couple of months and I don't like to discriminate, but the sound of a 2-stroke is starting to grate :-)
