  1. It has taken me almost 30 years to progress from my original Honda VT250 that I dropped 1 too many times and vowed never to get another bike!

    Now with age hopefully comes wisdom and I can progress and ride much more safely than i did all those years ago.

    I have just clicked over 1000k's on my new Yamaha XVS 650 Classic. I wish the wisdom and the want to ride again had arrived a lot earlier than it did.

    Cheers Mick
  2. Welcome Mick, there have been a few returning riders lately. Keep the shiny side up :)

  13. Hey Mick,
    I'm another Northsider (Albany Creek) and am just starting (read learning heaps)... I'm guessing we could be of similar vintage judging by your title. Anyway welcome!
  14. Hi Spotman,

    Yeah my vintage is 1964, exactly same boat trying to learn as much as I can. Even doing a Stay Upright course at the end of July, if you want to go for a ride let me know.....Azza and I will be going for a ride Saturday week if your interested!

    Cheers Mick
