Gday from Newie

  1. Gday,

    Just a short note of intro...I'm Steve from Newcastle, 27 been riding since 2005. I used to have an old Yamaha MX-80 to throw around the bush as a kid and once i'd outgrown it had stayed off bikes until I bought a Hyosung GT650R on my L's in '05.

    I won't go into my dillemas with that piece of unreliable junk, but it's got me around for nearly 10000k's with reasonable success. Now I'm ready to upgrade a little, but will be going for a cruiser for personal comfort (sore back), and thought it'd be good to share my thoughts and read all yours about the joy of riding a bike in the sun (and the rain...sometimes).

    Anyway, happy riding
  2. Hello there.

    Welcome, I'll see you out there.
  3. I will now give you an official welcome Steve..

    Welcome to NR mate.. :grin:
  4. G'day and welcome to Netrider. Not sure if a cruiser is gonna help your back problems, probably better goin for something with a more neutral position.

  5. +1 ,make sure you ride the cruiser for a few hours ,some riding positions can just make your back ,into a pogo stick.
