Here is a little intro from John
I am 58, married and have lived in Kirk Deighton since 1998.
I got my first bike in 1980, passed my bike test in 1981 and rode for the next five years, including two as a despatch rider in Manchester.
I’ve had a lay off from riding since 1986 but bought myself a bike in January.
The move back onto two wheels has been less daunting than I had feared and I’ve managed to clock up 1,500 miles without falling off, but I am definitely rusty and never really received any instruction before my original test, so I think it’s time to get some proper training.
Here’s a picture of me on my bike. It’s a Husqvarna Vitpilen 401.
I hope I’ll get to join one of the ride outs in the near future.
