  1. Hi guys and girls,

    Another long-time lurker finally saying hello. Been interested in riding for ages, but have not had much experience up till now. I got my Learners permit late last year but haven't been back on a bike till... well, today! A mate of mine is moving to Sydney, and he's given me the use of his Suzuki Across to see if I'd like to buy it. Spent a few hours on it today, thought I'd be like a new learner since it's been so long, but it was ok - like riding a bike I guess!

    Still, I don't have that much experience under my belt so made sure to be back in time before rush-hour traffic. Might try to make it to the Saturday learner's practice tomorrow morning, it's a really excellent idea to have it.

  2. First post at last! ?? huh?
  3. Hmmm... should have stuck a comma in there: first post, at (long) last! :facepalm:
