  1. Hi All,

    I just realised after making a few posts that I haven't introduced myself :roll:

    I am a 28yo Male from South West Victoria and have just bought my first two bikes in the last few days and am booked in for the test tomorrow.

    The first was a $300 Yamaha DT175 1986 model that is a little rough but can't complain for 300 clams. It will be fine to thrash around the paddocks and local scrub.

    The other is a brand new Suzuki GS500F K8 which I know they are like assholes and everyone has one but for me when I sat on it, it just felt right. Got a good deal on it too and it will be more than enough for me at this stage.

    I decked myself out with a Shoei XR1000 helmet and Alpine stars Jackets (1 falcon textile with leather sleeves and a back protector and the other a RC-1 leather) along with a pair of sp-1 gloves, supertech-r boots, hornee jeans and also draggins camo jeans.

    All ready to go but a bit disappointed as the bike can't be insured until I have a license (Swann) and I can;t get back to the shop until late next week (they aren;t open at the time I get my license) so unfortunately there will be a bike and gear sitting here waiting to be ridden but can;t until I get insurance sorted out.

    I guess it wont be so bad as I can troll around the net getting more information and tips.

  2. Hi and welcome to NR.

    Here is your first tip. Take a shirt off before trying to iron it.
  3. Cheers mate taken on board.

    I am more than happy to sit back and take in all the information and tips from the Old Hands. :wink:
