    Default Hello! Welcome! Who are you?

    Fellow Vets!
    I thank whichever mod is responsible for starting this forum.
    Having long left our puberty behind, hopefully we'll all enjoy some mature and friendly discussions here, without too much of the ego or testosterone driven replies that plague many other forums.
    I thought that this might be a small enough community on this great site that we will see each others usernames plenty.
    Perhaps a little intro will put a person behind the anonymous avatar and username.

    How old are you?
    What state do you live?
    How long have you been riding?
    Whats styles of riding do you do?
    How often do you ride?
    Tell us about your bike/s?
    Have you had any significant bike related injuries?
    Do you compete and at what level?
    Any cycling highights worth posting?
    What forums/subforums do you visit the most on rotorburn?
    Whats your biggest or favourite rant?

    Answer as much or as little as you feel like doing...this is meant to be fun not a chore!!
