G'day all, Finally joined NR after bookmarking it months ago. It didn't feel right to join when I didn't have a bike, but I finally bit the bullet (and persuaded my wife) and bought one. I still feel a bit of a fraud as I don't actually have the bike yet. It's still getting the extras fitted, so hopefully next weekend I'll be a real person. There seems to be quite a few of us returning riders. It's over 20 years since I owned a bike, and over a decade since I last rode, so I'm looking forward to getting my grin back. Thanks to all the posters too. I got many ideas from reading what's been posted: what issues others have found and the ways they got around them, people's recommendations, informal and formal reviews, etc. ... and to answer the inevitable question, yes I will post pictures (once I have something to photograph that is).
