  1. Hi Everyone, On reaching the big 50th birthday and really not enjoying my life beside work and family life looking after and raising 3 wonderful Kids who are 25, 24 & 19.
    Its all done and now its My time back again So in June this year i went and got my Learner permit and straight off to the dealer and picked up my 2015 Yamaha Vstar XVS 650A Classic. Enjoyed riding it for 3 months and thought the L plate has to go and Just got Off the L.
    Completed the first 1000K and had the bike service and I think i am ready to make some great friends along the way.
    So till then LET's RIDE SAFE

    Didn't you have a licence back then?

    Good choice in the bike? They are awesome machines.. I just traded mine after 4.5 years... Did about 41K kms on it.
