  1. heya, been using this place as a source of information for a while so thought i would finally introduce myself.

    im 20 and from Brisbane, got my RE license last July and a vtr250 later in the year. had a minor off shortly after getting it (panicked and low sided on a downhill corner), but have been riding incident free since then lol

    i'm heading overseas soon for a few months, but after that i will probably look into getting in on some group rides etc.

    thats about it, not a lot else to say :)

  2. Congratulations on de-lurking :LOL:.
  3. Welcome to NR mate, bummer about your off, but i bet you learned a million things about it..
  4. thanks

    yeah i think it was a real wake up to how easy it is to come off if you don't stay calm and cautious. and i have the scars on my leg to remind me that regular jeans and sneakers don't cut it as protective gear :oops:
  5. ATGATT mate, ATGATT
  6. ^^ wot he said :)

    Oh, and welcome to NR! :p
  7. Welcome to NR :)

    Sorry to hear about the off...guess sometimes it takes learning the hard (and sometimes painful) way to not take liberties in regard to the safety aspect.

    Ride safe
