Fresh meat from Ballarat

Discussion in 'Welcome Lounge' started by Benchmark, May 2, 2014.

  1. Hi to All, just saying a hello and thanks for having me! I'm another late bloomer, ridden dirt bikes for years but finally got my licence a couple of years ago and about to go off restrictions this month to be on a full-non restricted Vic licence. Have been loving every minute of riding my 2012 CBR 250R and although I cant questions its 'learner bike' qualities but I'm definitely looking forward to something with a bit more grunt when I can. Anyway this is me, love riding and learning, getting better every ride and wish you all good times and safe travels, Cheers

  2. Hi, I'm local to the 'rat too, welcome :)

  5. Hello and welcome! @Berty@Berty I'm glad you saw this was about to say "Hey, I know another NR'er in Ballarat..." :)

    I've read it written on here often that dirt biking teaches you good foundation skills so I hope you found the transition smooth too.
