  1. Hi all,

    My name is a Joe and I'm a 19yr old uni student from Canberra.

    I started riding when I was around 9yrs old on a friend's pee wee 80 and progressed up to my own dr250, which I got for my 11th birthday. Stayed on that for a few years and it's still sitting outside in the garage come to think of it.

    I bought my first road bike about a month or so before I could get my L's, a Yamaha xz550. I then got my L's the day I turned 16+9months and rode home from the motor registry. The Yamaha stayed for the duration of my L's but was sold off shortly after I got my P's.

    After just over a year of being bike-less, I decided to change that situation. I sold my car and within 3hours was the proud new owner of a GSX750F.

    I've had the Suzuki for just over a year now and again, its time for a change. I'm looking to getting back into trail riding, selling my Suzuki and buying a smaller, cheaper road bike as a daily rider.

    I found netrider through a friend and thought it would be a great way to meet other like minded people.

    Thanks all,
  2. Christ! We really can field a team now.
