Thanks Corsair. Welcome StarZ to the the best little ho oops. best forum around. Before we all get bent here you better post some pics of your scoot. I'm telling you this as a new friend trying to keep you out of the wrath of the picture police.They make them rules to read before signing on to this forum. So since you didn't read the rule book and I don't know why you didn't it's only 196734 pages long.We all read it. So we all here will have to decide on the penalty to throw down.How's that Corsair? Ride safe and keep the shiny side up.

That good HD. In the prelude pages of the rule book (i to xxxiiiioooo) it states that any member who has posted a pic of their ride, can get bent out of shape at newbs who do not post pics of their ride. Now for the penalty for Starz; post a pic of your ride ASAP and say that you will post often and enjoy this site.

Welcome to the forum and try to bring any sense of normalcy you can.

Hey Starz,about some riding tips.If you haven't taken a safety course I strongly suggest you find one in your area and take it.It's the best thing you can do for you and the people you ride with.I've been riding for many moons and when my wife wanted to ride I tried to teach her but I had too many bad habits.So She took a safety course and they teach you the right way to ride and handle your bike. It's good stuff.
I hope my self and corsair weren't too hard on you we were just havin some fun with the newbie.We do it to all of them.Welcome aboard.

Welcome to the forum StarZ. Don't let those nut cases run you off. I remember quite a few of these bozos joining and not posting a pic until they figured out how (about 50 posts later)

Flatulence is natures way of reminding us to laugh at ourselves.
