  1. G'day Guys and Girls,

    I'm Shane 40 odd years old from Brisbane.

    I used to ride, got sick of Brisbane weather and went back to a car, but with the cost of fuel and that "itch" still needing to be scratched, I've decided its time to get back on bike.

    I haven't ridden on the road for about 12 years (played off road until about 5 years ago)

    I'll be asking a lot of questions, so if I get too annoying let me know (and I suck at searching)

  2. HI Shane from another Brisbanite. I know what you mean about the weather! Good to hear you are back on two wheels again.
  3. Hi and welcome. What are you planning to get back on to?
  4. Welcome, Shane :)

    There are heaps of Netriders in the area and some coffee nights, etc...

    Ask all sorts of questions; someone will know the answer.
  5. Hi Shane and welcome to Netrider (y)
  6. welcome to NR
  7. Welcome to NR.
  8. G'day Shane, I'm Mike, 48, Runcorn, ZX14 ... and I have webbed feet. I know where you're coming from mate.

    And yeah - welcome to the party.
  9. Well, I'm looking at a cruiser, I'm a bit torn at the moment, logic says I should buy a bike thats cheap to buy and cheap to run, but the heart says get something with a lot of "thump"
