  1. Hello everyone!

    Let me do a little intro.

    Age: 19
    Location: Sydney (Sutherland shire)
    Bike: (well almost, explained further down) Honda CBR250 RR

    A number of months ago a mate of mine gave me a go on his 250, enough said really... never being a big car fan i got hooked with bikes. I had always taken an interest in them but the feeling of riding was over powering!

    So I'm pretty new to biking and after months of searching for the right bike and getting to know what riding is all about (to the best of my ability) i bought my first bike last week but i don't get my license till end of march (course is on the 24-25) so a friend is keeping it for now.

    Iv been reading like mad (both books and forums) to gain as much knowledge as i can before i start what will hopefully be a long term biking career.

    In my search for information i came across this site and was so impressed that it only took me 10min to go and buy a membership. The knowledge here is mind blowing, moreover the community here seems awesome!

    I cant wait to get to know you guys and hopefully come along to some group rides.

    Thanks for everyones input and I'm looking forward to becoming part of the motorcycling community!



    PS: also thank you for reading my looooong post.
