Hi all, I'm thinking about doing a trip to Australia the end of this year and would really like to do some riding while I'm there. The plan is to stay in Sydney Sep,Oct, and Nov. I'll be taking some classes and learning about Australia. If it all comes together I'll be doing a lot more of enjoying Australia than learning about it. :wink: About me. I'm an old fart who enjoys doing a bit of riding. I live by the San Francisco Bay in California. My bikes are an '05 Yamaha FJR 1300 and a Honda CRF 230 (that doesn't get much use). Most of my riding is day rides with local groups, with a road trip thown in every three or four months. This forum looks like a great place to connect with Australian riders and get good advice. And I will be needing some advice. After lurking about here, I will have a bunch of questions. Like what the hell is a an L and a P? :?: Rent or buy? If buy, then what will be quick and easy to sell when it's time to go home? License? Laws? Cops? Insurance? And much more. But I will post those Qs later in other forum areas. Hope to meet and ride with some of you later this year.
