  1. Hi all,
    Have ridden for about 20yrs, most of that time to and from work on a daily basis. My last two bikes were a GSX1400 then the Rocket 3 Roadster. Had the Rocket worked to within an inch of it's life and was an absolute beast. Then we built our house, the first son was born and I decided I could use the money and didn't mind a break with the little one around.

    Fast forward 7 years and I take him to the recent Barry Sheene Festival of Speed at Eastern Creek. We both enjoyed the day. Long story short, and because of the visit to the FOS, I have purchased a cbr125 to take part in the bucket racing series. Should be fun. Can't do much about my height, but a few kilos have to come off so this thing can move!

    So, much to the disapproval of the mrs, I am back into bikes, looking forward to my first ever time on a track and being involved in racing. Furthermore, I am daydreaming about my future 2017 Suzuki GXS1000 purchase. It's good to be back.

    btw, until the last couple of weeks I haven't bought any gear for about 10yrs. The prices seem to be much the same from memory.

    Love the site. Hope to meet a few you in the future.
