  1. Hey All,

    Been reading this forum for a few weeks now - awesome!

    I've been riding for about 15 years but havn't ridden on the road for years. Started with an XR200, then an XL200 Then an XR250 (bored to 280) then thought I'd try my hand at road riding and bought a Suzuki Across but almost became mess on someones windscreen on a ride through Galston Gorge when I was on my L's.

    So went back to trail riding and bought an RMX250, but about a year later my car got hit by lightning and I had to sell me bike to get a new car. The lightning was "an act of god" so insurence didn't pay me out full amount so I needed the money.

    But after a couple of years of no bike I've been itching to get back into it. So I'm booked in to do my L's mid November and have put a deposit on a Yamaha VSTAR Custom Midnight Edition 08 model.

    Forums been really helpful and I'm really looking forward to meeting up with some of you soon!
