  1. Hi netriders,
    I finally got my restricted licence here on the Gold Coast a couple of weeks ago after years of talking about it and managed to talk my dad and sister into it also.
    We did the 1 day coarse at ama, should have done the 3 day (a little bit rusty)but anyway we all passed.
    Me and dad decided to purchase a new xvs650 custom sis got virago250 will be picking up some time this week, can't wait for the first ride very excited!
    Thanx everyone talk soon!

  2. good stuff (y) and welcome
  3. Excellent. The family that plays together stays together right? Trouble comes when you all bugger off on more and more trips and your other halves keep getting left at home lol!
  4. Thanks Andrew and chillibutton, no probs for me I've just got the dog to think about!

  9. Welcome to NR. Good job talking your dad and sister into it. I went for it after my son came home waving his learners at me and then went overseas. By the time he got back, mum had L's and a bike which is more than what he had! Happy to say that's been rectified. Happy riding.
