I couldn't believe I've missed this forum all these years, when I happened to stumble upon it about a month ago. What the heck, I might as well join in rather than just lurk around... the place feels like home anyway.
Bikes have played a significant part of my life ever since I was a kid, same for most of you guys I would imagine! But the funny thing was, bikes sought me out in the beginning rather than the other way around. When I was around 10 years of age, I was the last one in my peer group that still couldn't ride a bike... I started late (in a lot of stuff I'm into). And no matter how hard I tried, I just couldn't figure out how to ride a bike, which only made me even more determined.
Cut a long story short, I ended up with trail motorcycles and a motocross bike, then went back to BMX (back to front I know) when a friend talked me into it, then to Mountain Biking and then back BMX with my children this time, then back to MTBs and now to Mini Velos (I'm fascinated by these little critters!).
Time is always a bit of a problem, but I hope to post here and there as much as I'm able.
