  1. Good morning all,

    I am from Castle Hill and considering getting a bike (within next 6 months). I would be starting from L's and looking forward to the knowledge base in the forum.

    As a first step, I would like to find out if anyone here is from Hills District (NSW) and what are their thoughts about riding to city? (daily for work)

    Your experiences/opinions would be really appreciated.



    Regards
    Gaurav
    * I used to ride a Kawasaki 150cc looong time back when I was a teenager.. so not completely new to motor bikes and very keenly looking forward to it..

  2. eh i live in mt druitt and spent abit of time riding to either my work depot in silverwater or to the job sites out in the city...

    traffic can be a biatch...dont be afraid to use your horn being a smaller vehicle - people will kill/seriously hurt you without noticing what they are doing. apart from that & being exposed to the weather...it was great - loved it...cut in n out of traffic (not filtering - did it legally) but make sure your good and used to riding again before you do it as there isnt much room for error in/around the city
