  1. Hello everyone,

    New rider here from Melbourne. I got into bikes when I rode my brother's 250 'chook chaser' around up Mansfield way and I was totally hooked!

    Got my learners from Motorcycle Motion in Moorabbin (recommended) then bought a GPX 250 after reading the advice of people here on the forums. I just wanted to say what a great website this is for newbies like me.

    I had my first long ride today with my brother, we went from Ferntree gully up to the top of Mt. Dandenong, back down towards Lilydale, then onto the Black Spur. It was a fantastic day, I'm still buzzing a bit from it!

    Hope to ride with some of you guys one day!

    Thanks stewy. I actually looked at the ZZR's but after seeing a '90 GPX in pretty good nick going for $1900 the decision was pretty easy. I do like the look of the ZZR though. Same engine and I have heard they are almost bulletproof!

    Hope the weather clears up so I can ride to work tomorrow :) :) :) :) :)
  15. Welcome Brett and happy riding. Hope to see you around soon
