Getting back into riding...

Discussion in 'Welcome Lounge' started by Going Camping, Jan 18, 2016.

  1. Hi all,
    I've suddenly found the perfect combination of excuses to get back into riding after 10+ years without a bike.
    I used to ride a Suzuki Across to uni every day.. well most days :)
    Now, I've got a job in the city (Melbourne) and have been spending over an hour commuting by car and train each week day. Time for a new bike... and gear, might as well be a newbie.

    Hopefully I will be able to post a picture of a shiny new Suzuki V-Strom 650 in the very near future!
