I have been informed that I must make my presence known

I'm Valerie, originally from Cullman, but currently living in Birmingham for grad school.

I *finally* got around to getting my motorcycle endorsement added to my license, and I will hopefully be buying one shortly!

It's been a long time coming. Exhibit A

Hey Val, welcome to the forum. Lot of good folk here. By all means, get you a bike and get going. Couple of really good lady riders on here around B-ham. Watch for group rides to meet people from the forum.

Welcome Val! Glad to have you join the fold. Keep your eye on the "Lets Ride" and "Planned Rides" threads. "Events" is another good thread to follow. Post up if there is anything that catches your interest. I'm one of the lady riders hanging around here. I'll leave the "good" part to your own judgment :)

Welcome, Val, from Forestdale!  We're glad to have you!

Add another Montgomery welcome.  Hopefully you are now able to reach the handlebars and pegs easier than you could on your previous bike :)

Welcome from the Slapout rider.

I was visiting my young friend last night when I asked if I could borrow a newspaper. “This is the 21st century, old man,” he said. “We don’t waste money on newspapers. Here, you can borrow my iPad.” I can tell you, that fly never knew what hit it...

Welcome form N. Alabama area. Glad you're here.

Tell us the story behind the pic, who's bike and did that give you the riding bug.

Tell us about your riding experience and what steps did you take to learn to ride.

Holler if you have any questions and once you have a bike, jump in the rides you find interesting.
