Gday folks, Ive been lurking for a couple of weeks now and only just signed up few days ago. My name is Alan, but people call me Al or Sherm or many other things i probably cant repeat here. Im 33 and a Paramedic in the Army currently posted and living in Canberra. Ive mostly ridden dirtbikes over the years but did ride a Honda CM250 Custom for about 6 months that a mate let me use while i had no car a couple of years ago. Ive only recently gotten my licence and am currently in the market for a bike. Ive been offered a GPX250 2004 model with about 48xxx Klms and RWC for $2000. I am keen on it but am not 100% about it just yet. Ive got a new helmet (AGV), winter jacket and some dryrider winter gloves. Im going to buy some Rjays Sprint boots next week and some draggin or similar jeans soon too. I will mostly ride to and from work (as diesel for my Patrol is getting too exxy) and the occasional stress relief ride after work and on weekends. Im looking forward to getting a bike and going on some group rides too. Anyway, enough dribble, see you in the threads!! Cheers, Al.
