G'day all

  1. G'day All,

    I'm new to motorbikes and new to riding. Just got my L's and bought a Yamaha XVS650. I'm not the smallest guy getting around and wanted a bike that wouldn't put my knees up around my ears.

    Looking forward to learning as much as I can and getting out and about in Melbourne.

  2. G'day JayJay, congratulations getting your Ls and motorcycling. You've added to quite a few Netrider members in and around Melbourne and no shortage of good riding roads out of the city.
  3. Hi Jay, welcome to the forums and life on two wheels :) Well done getting your L's, nice choice of the bike too! Saturday learner practice in Elwood is a must, great way to learn and practice riding skills and meet fellow riders. Have fun and stay safe!
  4. Welcome Jay, +1 to Saturday practice in Elwood. It is a good place to meet other iders and get a few tips.
  5. Hey Jay,

    Great choice of bike. A fellow Netruder I personally know, also started on one (albeit, the custom), and only moved up to a XVS1100, to regularly ride 2 up.
  6. Welcome Jay,
    They are a popular bike, with many who started on them choosing to keep them after the learner restrictions are up.

  7. Thanks guys. Elwood sounds like a plan, I'll look up the details but it won't be for about 3 weeks as my weekends are all been booked for now :(
