  1. Hello out there everyone in Netrider land.

    My name is Callan, I'm 17 and I've had my L's for about 2 months and a bike for about a month. It's a 2007 GPX 250 that I picked up for $3,500 second-hand from the local Kawak dealer.

    Haven't done much riding, only on the weekends really seeing as I work night-shift (at Cargill Beef Australia, Tamworth) so I'm dead tried in the morning and at work in the afternoon/night, but I plan to try and get out to any of the rides that come out this way.

    Anywho, I think that's about all for now, looking forward to meeting some of you guys and leaching all the information out of you that I can :grin: .

    Have fun, and I'll see you out there...

  5. Hi Callan.

    Welcome. :)

    So what was wrong with the bike?? $3500 is an awesome price for a 2007 GPX (based on Melbourne's market at least)!! There are Melbourne NR's throwing tomato's at your post right now!

    Enjoy, and can I suggest you have a read of the "beat the odds" link so that you get through your learning curve safely.



    p.s. shift work sucks severely!
  6. Thanks for the welcome guys.

    So far as I can tell nothing is wrong with it, it was a trade-in (someone upgrading to a ZX-10R) so I guess they didn't really care how much they resold it for.

    And yes, shift work does suck bananas. :evil:
