Hi-I'm Gin

Hi gang. I've been reading over sbeau's shoulders for a year now, so it seems like we already know each other through our shared adventures. It was just brought to my attention that I never formally introduced myself, not that I'm formal, I'm just Gin, the gal in the Hornet/Beetle/Canoe and other sagas you may have read here on the WT forum. I've enjoyed your stories, debates, jokes etc. I might chime in sometime instead of being such a lurker.

I currently ride an 04 Honda 599 Hornet & an 02 Kaw Vulcan 500. I grew up in rural Ohio, there were always bikes in my family. Dad had an XS1100 Yamaha, Mom had a candy apple red Honda CB450, and my brother had various dirtbikes that I loved to ride. It's good to be back on two wheels again after a 25 year hiatus.

Thanks! I grew up in the country near Richwood, which is in Central OH about an hour north of Columbus.

I highly recommend her to take an Abate MSF course if you have something like that in your area. I took one to brush up and it was really useful.

My Ma/Grandparents are from Warren. My sister-in-law lives in Dublin.
That means I like almost all Ohioans (my wife's sister is a little nuts).
Glad you finally showed face.

Welcome Gin.... Been admirin' that yellow 599 for a while...nice to finally meet the owner. Is it true that you have been ghost-writing for sbeau on the political forums?

Hey Gin, post up some more, increase the estrogen level here.
I'd love to meet you sometime. We could do a ride on our twin bikes and turn some heads!
