Hi all, What a great forum which really helped me out when choosing a new bike a couple of months back. I hadn't been on a bike for nearly 25 years as family and finances took priority. Kids have now grown up and moved out so I bought a nice new 2013 Honda VT750S this October. It's a sedate bike with a nice retro look and feel, and it doesn't cramp my shredded knees. I have 1600 kms up on it now and use it to get to work plus short blasts when I can get away and it's not pouring on the weekends (lot of that lately) Also have a 1986 Yamaha RZ350FS which I've owned since new and was the last bike I road. It is now a restoration project after I garaged it in 1989 following my 3rd decent get-off. I was a ten-tenths adrenalin junkie (ie, idiot) back then but I couldn't kill that sweet stroker. It's looking like a tough job to get it back on the road but it was such a good bike that I have to give it a go. Anyway, I hope to contribute where I can, maybe get on some group rides, and I'll continue to mine the incredible amount of info and experience on these pages.
