  1. I'm a newbie at this site.
    Live in lower blue mountains.
    Ride a 'bus.
    Have fallen once or twice.
    Been riding for half a century, give or take.
    So that makes me veeeery old.

  2. welcome aboard :) we all fall over :)
  3. Welcome mate :cool:
  4. G'day and welcome, KevinKevin. Do you have any particular favourite ride routes in or near the mountains?
  5. Welcome to the forum mate

  8. gday kev11ekev11e and welcome to Netrider - I'm sure you will have plenty of wisdom to share with those of us that don't have 50yrs experience.
  9. G'day kevin and welcome mate.
    I've fallen over twice in my time and survived. It happens I guess.
    When I had my 94 ZX9R Ninja I rode to the Blue Mountains in the middle of Winter wearing my summer gloves. Damn it hurt !
    I would place my free hand in under the tank to get the heat and when I'd stop at the lights both hands would go under.
    Love the Mountains

  10. welcome from another old rider
  11. Hey Kevin.
    Welcome mate.
    Try to keep it upright now that you are getting old.
    You no longer bounce and you don't want to do a hip mate!
  12. Welcome, Kevin.

    Always good to see another less young rider here.

    Reminds me of a friend who says " you don't get older, you just ripen "

    Keep having fun.
  13. G'day
    Thanks for your kind words of welcome...
  14. Welcome Kev. Just don't fall over at 100kph.
  15. Hi kev11ekev11e
