  1. G'day all,

    Just joined after meeting one of your members (on the road) that told me of this site.

    I'm Pete, I have just bought an '05 Honda VTR1000F Firestorm, after previously owning a Honda Rebel. I picked her up on Friday arvo and with the patchy Melbourne weather, still managed to run up a little over 600kms. I'm looking forward to joining you guys on a couple of the upcoming rides in a week or so.

    Til then I bid you happy and safe riding and congrats on a fantastic site.


    :D :D :D :D :D
