Hi there, I'm a long time lurker and thought I had better put my $10.88 to good use and join up! I first got my bike licence about 16 years ago when I was working for Aus Post. I never rode a 'real' motorbike until February this year, when I bought a Honda VT250C on the spur of the moment...Took it for a 'squirt' without actually knowing how to ride it...15 minutes later and the backstreets of Ringwood were no longer scared of me denting the bitumen...I was kinda hooked.. I sold the Honda about a month ago and picked up an '85 Suzuki VS750, which I am in the process of getting back to some former glory. I'm 42, live in the Eastern suburbs and try to get out on the bike as much as I can. I do shiftwork, so I tend to go on 11PM rides if it's warm enough!! Hopefully I get a lot out of my time here, it's always good to be amongst like minded people.
