Thought I should introduce myself, long time lurker, first time poster. Hail from Sunny QLD but moved to Melbourne about 2 years ago, live and work in Collingwood. I recently did the license course and passed with flyer colours, so I've decided to buy a bike. Part of the reason being an upcoming trip OS to the US and maybe SA with a mate where we will be riding around. I like the more classic naked looking bikes and want a project that I can ride when needed. Won't be using it for a commuter as I live on the same street I work on. I'm looking at the Honda CX500 and the CB series as a base for cafe conversion, i like the scrambler shape. Once I have my bike I'm hoping to document the project on a blog and I'll get along to the Elwood meet to meet some fellow newbs and get advice from some of the other guys. I think that about covers it.
