  1. G'day folks,

    After not having ridden for about 35 years (i can't even remember the last time), I did the Rider Safe course, got a learners permit, and bought a Yamaha XVS 650. That was in March. Two and a half months later, still upright, and time to join the on-line world. Love the NetRider forum, and all the posts, stories and photos from all the members.

  4. Welcome Steve. I guess if you can't remember the last time you rode, you probably can't remember the last bike you rode, but there were some interesting machines around in the late 70s - early 80s.....
