Hello.
I have joined.
I used to have a Kymco Downtown 300 that tried to amputate my leg. Then a Piaggio MP3 500 that was even heavier, and slower steering, than the K1300GT BMW.
Tomorrow morning I pick up a Yamaha X-Max 300.
In the afternoon I'll be adjusting handlebars, levers and screen position.
On Sunday I'll be putting them back to where they were.
Next week I'll be driving it to work trying to remember I need both hands on the brakes, not just two fingers on the right.

Hello and welcome. You'll have had your tea?
I wake up every morning with a smile upon my face,
My natural exuberance spills out all over the place!

Not feathering the clutch at a junction, the best one I've done is a brisk get away from the lights and pulling the 'clutch' to change into second... nearly locked up the rear mid roundabout.

Welcome, theres a good mix of bikers and scooter riders, as long as you don't take it too seriously and give as good as you get, you'll be right.
