Hi there I'm excal, I'm not yet a bike owner, but have finally decided to take the plunge into motorcycling after many (about 7) years since the thought first crossed my mind of becoming a rider. Partly to blame is a mate that has a 1956 AJS shaped jigsaw puzzle in garage... It was whole when he bought it, then he did something stupid and seized the gearbox on it. The obligatory "About me:" I'm 26, live in Sydney, work as a stage manager/backline guy for bands, and like am also a guitar player. I'm looking to pick myself up what I'm calling a "Grandpa bike." Something like a Royal Enfield, AJS, old Triumph, old Moto Guzzi or even a Yamaha SR, that kind of thing. I don't want to go a million miles an hour, I want something to get me around, something to tinker with, something I can modify without a computer, just some spanners, and something that's a little out of the ordinary. Any advice would be appreciated. Cheers!
