Hi all, Well just a quick post to introduce myself, I'm 24 female from Newcastle in NSW. I've been riding for just under 4 years now, started out on a mate's GPX, then bought myself a GS500F in early 2006. I've still got her (her name is T-Bone, a totally inappropriate name for a bike, I know). My husband also rides, he had an R1 that got stolen early last year and we're looking to buy him a new bike (he's my house-husband while he's at uni so I'll actually be paying for the whole thing!) which I will also ride, it'll likely be a GSXR1000, which we'll probably get in November (we're doing test rides next weekend). But I'll keep T-Bone for a while anyway as I don't think I'll be 100% comfortable on the gixxer for a while That's about all I can think to say, let me know if I'm meant to give some other info! Love the forum, have been lurking at work today and yesterday but figured I should actually contribute something!
