Hello,
I was looking for a place to introduce myself and thought post in that topic is the most appropriate place.
My name is Stella, I am 25 and I ride a 1987 Yamaha Virago 750.
That is my fourth bike. I used to ride a 1946 AWO 250, Ural 750 and a 1985 Suzuki GSX 550. I will post some photoes as soon as I learn how to do it, because I have never joined a forum before, and that is a totally new expirience :lol: Anyway, glad to take part.
Problem here is that the spring is still rainy and cold, so basicly I don't ride anything at the moment, but hope that's about to change :D
By the way- sorry if I made any mustakes, but English is not my native language :oops:

Welcome to the forum and don't worry too much about making the mistakes.

First you need to upload the picture to a web hosting site like tinypic.com or Photobucket. When you upload the picture the site will give you a url that looks like http://i25.tinypic.com/23jk45i.jpg . Next you surround the url with the image tags so it looks like

Code: Select all

[IMG]http://i25.tinypic.com/23jk45i.jpg[/IMG]
After you hit submit the picture will show up.

Judging from your spelling and grammar, your English is better than a lot of native English speakers. :) Don't worry about making mistakes....we all do from time to time.

Enjoy the forums!

Mistakes? Heck, you even use capital letters, punctuation, and everything! You could practically teach English in this country!

Hi again!
Thank you for the kind replies!
Unfortunately I haven't got no pictures on this PC, but my husband had posted a video of when I bought the bike in February, so there's the link:

That's me with it.
I'll post some pictures tomorrow- I'll scan at work. :) thank you again :D

You looked so serious. Nice blue colour on your bike.

It's a good-looking bike, and looks like it fits you well, too! But doesn't it figure that he gets a close-up of you when you are looking so studious, instead of when you are smiling! :wink:

Thanks.

I always look serious, but, take it like that-I just look serious :D :innoncent:

This is the Suzuki I used to ride two years ago. I don't like being photographed, so mostly it's me who does the pictures. This particular one is of a friend of mine, that bought the bike from me.

Image

This is the Ural, the photo was taken in 2005. We were heading to a biker event in a town, that was 200 kilometrs from where I live. On the 25th kilometer the engine had an oil leak :? and practicly stopped, so we desided to call for a van to take the bike back. But while we were calling, a friend (and a biker, too), who worked for a cargo company passed nearby with his truck and took the bike to Sofia, my home town. :( It was awfully disappointing, but by the time I have allredy purchased the Suzuki and went to the event anyways. :P
By the way, it doesn't look like original Ural, because the front was too low for me (I am quite tall, 178cm, or 5,9in) and i changed it with one from Yamaha Tenere.
Now, I'm becoming too circumstantial, so bye for now, and have a great day :)

Yes was absent for months!!! Sorry!!! I forgot how much I loved these forums :).

Took the bike out today, it was 70 and GORGEOUS!!! Perfect weather again! It's that time again for bike nights :). The boyfriend still rides all the time...I am a pansy ;). I will ride when it's cool, just bundle up!

I am doing well! I am ordering a lazy rider on Friday. I need the back support...and well a place for my purse LOL. I will report on how well I like it. Luckily they sell quick on Ebay, so if I hate it I will just put it on Ebay. I also NEED new glasses! The type I have suck at night!

How are you girls?

Same make, colour and year as mine, good choice if I may say! One question, what is the make of your saddle bags? I've been looking for them for a while without luck.

Hey guys!
I'm new to riding ... and having a blast!!! :mrgreen: (Hey, so what if it IS my midlife crisis?! :laughing: ) Just bought my first bike - an orange '05 Honda Rebel - about a month ago, and still getting my feet wet. :laughing: Taking a safety course in about a month, so hoping to pass and get my license then. Just on my permit now, but getting braver and riding the bike 14 miles to work on nice days. :wink: Luckily a friend of mine just got a bike just like mine a couple of weeks ago and is taking the safety course w/me, so this should be fun! Heck, even the hubby went out and bought a scooter (wus - LOL)! 8) Now I just have to figure out how to attach the saddlebags I bought! :laughing: I don't know how to attach a photo of it on here, but it's on my MySpace page if you want to look - www.myspace.com/tropicswriter . :D Feel free to email me to chat! tropicswriter@hotmail.com [/img]

Welcome to TMW! 14 miles to work and back already! Hope it isn't in heavy traffic!
went out and bought a scooter (wus - LOL)!
Hey! Don't be dissin' the scooter people! Nobody who rides anything on 2 wheels at high speeds on pavement is a wus. In fact, I feel safer on my motorcycle than on my scooter, because it is louder and bigger and a little more visible. He can get killed on a scooter, just like on a bike.

'nother new rider

Hi to you all! I'm a new rider as of one year ago. I ride a 2000 Yamaha V Star 1100 Classic and LOVE it! Laid 'er down last Sept on a site-seeing ride- lingering too long on a beautiful view of Lake Michigan and missed a curve. Got 2 broken teeth, 4 broken bones and thank God I'm here to tell about it. Anyway, I'm back in the saddle and getting over the "nerves". It's just too bad that work gets in the way when a nice day comes along! It's still chilly in Michigan- brrr!
