hello all - another newbie on the block

  1. hi all,

    This is my 1st post and wanted to say Hi! and introduce myself. I'm 30 yrs old from Melb and work in the CBD area. I have been browsing through this forum for quite a while now and I have to admit that I haven't seen a best forum on motor bike like this.
    You guys are great and very helpful and it feels like a whole community of the riders here which is always there for other riders whenever needed.

    I would still consider myself as a newbie even after riding bikes ranging from 100cc - 350cc but that was back in my home land :) and also that was couple of years back......around 7-8 yrs. I guess after such a long gap I couldn't help myself keeping my obsession with the bikes. So, last month one day I decided to buy a bike for myself and went to have the finance bit done first.

    It was a very hard decision initially but when I stumbled upon this forum I found answers to all my questions like......which first bike ?......naked or fairing.....license.....insurance...and most importantly the .....gears. I went for my learners with Rider Bros Motorcycle Training on Calder Fwy. The guys over there were very helpful and they even helped me out to have the Probationary license as I had a overseas motorcycle license.

    Reading through the post and as advised by fellow netriders I went up and got my gehars ready first and then start browsing through the various places for my first bike. Last week I picked up the Kawasaki 2002 ZZR 250, blue/silver,5900 kms for $5600 and I couldn't be more happier now on my decision.

    I just wanted so say thanks to all for your friendly advise regarding all the things that I was unfamiliar about before. I'm sure I will have more obvious questions posted in the forums and will have chance to interact more with you guys and may be meet some time :?:
    Sorry abt the long post :oops:
