Hi all, a fellow dirt biker friend suggested I should join as there are more ladies here that like to go riding! Sounds great! So here I am.

Details:

My name is Kate, I'm 24, and I love coffee, traveling, birds and motorcycles.

I recently got married (12/12/12) to Luke and he also rides and is a 4th yr motorcycle technician, he 'graduates' this year! WOO icon_thumright

I live on the northside of Brisbane.

Bikes I have owned:

2007 125cc Pit Bike (Piece of sheet)
2007 CRF150R Big Wheel (worth the extra $'s for the quality and great for a beginner!)
1999 Yamaha FZX Zeal 250 (1st road bike)

Bikes I own now:
1988 DT200R (old reliable!)
2001 KTM200EXC (current trail bike)
2001 R6 (current road bike, very fun)

I've always loved bikes and got my leg over my first one back in 2006 or 2007.. don't remember but I loved it from the get go :) I wanted to get into MX but had too many stacks jumping on the 150 and moved to the trails, which I now love! I don't mind a nice cruise up the hills on the R6 either, its a fun high-revving little thing!

I know a few people from another small enduro forum and try to get on rides with those guys, who are a great bunch of people, but due to the wedding back in December I haven't ridden much at all in the last 12 months. First ride after wedding was just before new years at Motocross Mountain hello2 hello2 SO HOT though...

I look forward to getting to know the people here and hope to get on more rides in 2013 :D

Hey Hey!!! Welcome to the site!!!

Yup - heaps of chicks on here, enough to have our 5th 'girls only' ride on 9th Feb. So come along and meet a few of the other females who love to get out on the dirties.

What a marriage date, atleast it is easy to remember! Guess there's no excuse for forgetting the anniversary!
