Another Ben?!

Tell us a little about yourself and say hello to the gang. We would like to hear about who, what, and why you ride as well as how you found us.

Another Ben?!

Post by Fussy » Sun Feb 22, 2015 2:26 pm

Another new guy named Ben, huzzah!

My wife Lindsay and I enjoyed our first ride with the FWMR group yesterday! I ride a '10 Z1000 and she's on a CBR250R. After living in Lewisville for a few years, we recently moved to Fort Worth, near Roanoke, and know nothing of the good roads around.

I've been on two wheels for 8 years and spent most of that time commuting to the office where I'm a performance consultant for AT&T. There's a whole lot to learn (and unlearn)!

Outside of work and riding, I'm a nerd. I enjoy gaming (video & board/card), reading, movies, and music.

Welcome to boards. You pleased Miles by posting a pic of your ride right away. This forum has a lot of nerds on it. Maybe your wife should sign up on the boards too. :)

Thanks, Miles. Hope to be out again soon.

Tel - I'll give her the nudge to sign up!

BD - Ha! I think Lindsay is eyeing up something like a Thruxton, Scrambler, or some such. She likes retros and a bit more upright seating. But who knows, maybe sporty rides will change all that!
