Default Yep - I'm a newbie

Hello Everyone! I'm new here so please forgive any posting errors. A little about myself. I'm a "new" rider. I actually don't know when I get to lose that classification but this will be my 2nd season riding. A little about how this all started for me. I've been wanting to "ride" my whole life. It didn't help when my brother got his bike. Even though he's older than I am, I was still jealous. Anyhow... MANY years later and here I am. My boyfriend had been riding for some years and finally decided to get licensed. He decided to take a riding course. Well, he signed ME up with him and informed me that I was going to learn how to ride! OMG - I was ALL for it! So... this was last year. The class was the first Friday of May and it was February when he signed us up. Plenty of time, right? Well, procrastinate I did. It was the last week of April when I realized I didn't get my permit yet!! Here's where the whirlwind begins. I take my permit test on Tuesday and pass. I get my paper permit. I BEGIN the riding class that very Friday through Sunday. I pass said test and get my license. On Tuesday I go back to DMV to get my license. He asked me for the photo permit. I said, "I just got this last Tuesday!". He says, "Wow, you don't waste any time, do ya?". I had my paper license before I had my photo permit. LOL!! On Wednesday of that same week, my boyfriend buys me a starter bike for my birthday! Yeah - all that pretty much happened in one week!! However, I'm sure you're not surprised to know that I am addicted to riding! That brings me here - as I am in the process of procuring a 2005 Victory Touring Cruiser (I could NOT pass up on the deal!) But I've always wanted a Victory!! My BF even asked me what he should buy and I said Victory. So, he rides a Classic Cruiser! . I'm going to be asking so questions SOON so please, be patient with me!! I already started looking thru the forums and wow - there is a LOT of info to filter thru.... too much! But all good I'm sure! OK well... I've talked enough, but I had to tell my story. Can't wait to "meet you" and see you around the forum!

Thanks,
Maureen
