  1. Hi all,

    It took me a while, but I finally got here :)

    Long story short, I started riding Feb '07, starting out on an old grey import EL250 "sports", which was an awesome learner bike... I was off the L's in July '07, and a couple months ago bought a Honda Shadow 750... which surprised me somewhat, as I was looking for a tourer, something like... Slow Coach's... but once on the Shadow I didn't want to get off... not a bad sign I spose :) I've done around 50 000k's, mostly in Melbourne (I don't own a car), though did venture to Wollongong once, I wouldn't mind another ride like that...

    I met a few of you on last Tuesday night's L's ride, and again on Thursday’s MR, and for the most part you all seem like thinking & respectful riders, and I'm slightly kicking myself it's taken me this long to hook up with you all!

    I have to say, I'm already addicted... and paid the membership Friday night :)

    That's my yammering done... :)

    Like I said, looking forward to talking with you more, and learning! Just 'cause we don't wear an L doesn't mean we stop learning, eh? :)
