Welcome aboard skinnymarg...this is a great place for tips and advice, but we also tend to get a bit crazy from time to time!

Welcome skinnymarg to the forum. Just how skinny are you? Post a pic and we will decide, ok? When you do get a ride, ride safe.

If you want to become a rider, the best tip I can give you is, get a motorcycle!
And the best advice I can give you is, get a Yamaha!
