Crash Dummy's Son/Protege

#1 Post by Blue Jay » Mon Oct 17, 2011 12:58 pm

Hey everyone its Joshua good to be on this forum and good to be among everyone. It has been quite a great adventure with you all on the few outings I have been on and am looking forward to more. For those that dont know I am fairly new ok really new at riding HAHA I have only been riding since May of this year and I completed the DMV circle in September after dumping the bike during the test LOL I came out of it though understanding the importance of being able to complete that circle. I am on a 500 ninja and already want something bigger lol. I ride on a daily basis and even push myself to ride in the rain for the experience. I love getting advise to better my riding capabilities and strive to get better. :D

Glad to see you on the rides, and now in the Forum. You definitely have a wealth of riding knowledge (aka-Randy) at your fingertips, so use it wisely. Look forward to seeing you on all of our rides so you can show everyone what the 5-hunny can do. :lol:

Thanks Josh for helping with my bike and the jump start! I don't know what I would have done without you.

Glad you're on the forum too!

Hi Joshua! I haven't had much of an opportunity to get to know you yet, but I'm sure we'll get that chance sometime soon if you keep coming around. See you on a ride soon.

Hi Josh, sorry for my complete horrible memory if we have met on past rides already and since our avatars are not working correctly for the time being its hard to remember your face. Welcome to the forum though and I'll be looking for you to say hi at our next open ride if your able to make it out :)
