A Quick Hello From A Pom In Melbourne

Discussion in 'Welcome Lounge' started by Melbourne_Pom_Bret, Nov 6, 2012.

  1. Hi my name Bret. I am 29 and live in st Kilda Melbourne. As the name says I am from England. Have been riding for around 7 years and off road when I was a kid. Have also done a cpl of track days back in England when I owned a r6

    I currently have a r1 which I commute to work on and ride for fun on weekends.
    Have only had the r1 a couple of months an don't know Melbourne well so planning on getting involved with ride outs an meet ups.

    Have a friend with a gsxr 1000 and the mrs likes to come out on the back of the bike

    Hope to meet some of you soon. Bret
  2. Welcome Bret.

    Although your previous history suggest you should be well versed, it could be worthwhile to get to a Sat morning prac session - if only to meet some folk. Since you're in st kilda it's only down the road behind the BP in elwood.
  3. Hi Brett and Welcome. South and do the Penninsula and up Arthur's seat. Across the heads on the ferry and the Great Ocean Rd.

    East to Gembrook and beyond.

    North to St Andrews, King Lake, Eildon and Yea.

    West to the Brisbane ranges.
