So Im a long time lurker, mostly by way of Google searches as this forum gets me kind of lost some times but really want to become an active member. Or at least semi-active anyway as I have a tendency to disappear from forums for awhile for laziness reasons and then randomly pop back in here and there. I cant seem to find an intro area at all though, is there one? Plus Im not really sure where to dive in and just start posting so I thought maybe I might make an intro post up? I hope this is ok with everyone. Im also on the FZ6-Forum under the same username if anyone wants to background check me, heh. Im usually a solo rider but thats mostly because I dont really know any other riders, let alone anyone that rides like I do. I use my bike as a way to get around Philly during the winter, a way to commute to NYC during the summer and Ive been noticing a trend every year since I got my first bike to one up myself on a crazy solo roadtrip each and every year. I bought my first bike, a 2000 Ninja 250 in Sept 2010 then Oct 2010 made it down to Wash DC while living in NYC then (I live primarily in South Philly now but still work in NYC and am looking to move back up there again soon because I make more money up there). Summer of 2011 I rode down through Florida even making it out to the Keys. (Edit: Oh and on the way back from Florida I would have qualified for the 1000K in less than 24 hours for the IBA if I had actually submitted everything including all the receipts I ended up collecting) Then right before the summer of 2012 I sold my Ninja and bought my current baby a 2006 Yamaha FZ6. 2 months later I went on a 2.5 month vacation which involved crossing the country via Route 66 spending some time in Cali including a month in San Fran before almost running out of cash and taking a quicker route back home. I cant stop dreaming of great adventures though and find myself googling ways to ship my bike to Europe (something I dont think I can do this summer and might have to wait till at least Summer 2014, but you never know) among other roadtrip ideas. I think Im officially hooked and worry how much bigger and crazier will my roadtrips be in another few years? So anyway Id love to make friends with some of you both on the forum and in real life. I love my solo trips but also wish I knew some people who were in love with riding as much as I am so maybe some of my trips wouldnt only be solo ones. So I guess I start here: "Hi my name is Kerri, Im a 26 year old female and am addicted to riding and want to see the world!" Also, admins please feel free to move this if you feel another section would suit my post better. I simply posted here because I live in the area but dont want to limit my friendships to just people in the Northeast US of course!
