Yeah, what about me? :-)
I'm a simple guy from the Netherlands. I wanted to start riding a bike since I was 16 and now, 10 years later, I finally got around to actually get my license. The first time I actually got to start a 600CC motorcycle while sitting on it, I was sold for life. The feeling is unexplainable, but I bet you know what I'm talking about.
As of the 25th of June 2014 I'm almost done, getting a license in the Netherlands consists of 3 seperate exams:
- Theory exam (passed it with 3 of the max 6 allowed wrong answers, 27th of May 2014)
- Special manouvers exam (passed it the first time on the 10th of June 2014)
- Taking part in traffic, the final exam (still waiting on the date)
I'm really a prepper (hehe), so before I got my license I already knew which bike I wanted to buy: a Honda CBR600F3. It's right in my price range, it has tons of power and it looks awesome (I went for the all-black version, '99).
Immediately after taking my first few lessons I bought all my gear: clothing, helmet, gloves, shoes etc. I'm hooked!
