Re: Finally not so lonely!
Hello there and welcome to the forum. Always gets the boys here all flustered if a girl shows up. Ha! It sounds like you're getting lots of advice. Two things from me. One, a lot of us are using Opti-2 mixed at 100-1. I use it in my 2 strokes, chainsaws and such. Very little smoke and stink. Good stuff.
Second, wear a helmet even for short rides down the block. Make it a habit.
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
