  1. Hello
    I am a long time rider. I have just bought a Yamaha XVS1300, my first cruiser and so far I am loving it.

  2. Hello and welcome gretgret. Beautiful bike! What have you been riding before getting your first cruiser?
  4. I started riding Bultaco's, Sherpa T 325 was my first real bike and was was folowed by a large number of Frontera's and Pursangs before developing a love of Yamaha dirt bikes. That was in my late teens and early twenties and also had numerous road bikes at the same time, including a Hailwood, GSX1100 and Honda VF1000R. at the moment I have a Honda CB1300S, the model with the red frame and gold wheels.....it is bit old world and I love it.
    I am uncertian how to navaigate around the site yet so aplogies if you have posted this, but what are you riding? have you been at it long? I have just turned 60 and still have hair which is grey.....but no one can see that until I take my helmet off.

  5. Hey gretgret, we are all young under the helmet anyway ;) You ride, that's the best way to stay young. I'd love to see the pic of your CB1300S, maybe you can share it with us as well as your yummy Yamma on a Showcase thread.

    I just got into riding, still on my L's. Like many on here, wanted to ride a bike for ages but life kept coming in the way. I started with Honda CBR500RA, it's very nice learner bike and looks after me well. Heaps to learn, and I find folks on here to be very supportive and this forum to be wealth of knowledge.

  6. Welcome Gret, your account will need to upgrade to member status before you have image posting and showcase access. This shouldn't take long, engage in some threads and within a couple of days it should update. The banner under your Avatar will change to orange when that happens.
