Hello Netriders, Just a quick post to say hello and join in on this very active community. I've been reading every day and learning for a few weeks now, and am impressed at how helpful, friendly and positive everyone is (not to mention knowledgeable). Anyway, as with many new joiners, I'm just about to book in for my Ls. I will be doing the 2day training with HART. I had trail bikes when I was younger so hopefully I will go OK. I'm still working on wife approval to buy a bike but she is slowly coming around. 250s seem pretty expensive in Melbourne so I am keeping my eye out for the usual 250s (across, ZZR, GPX, etc) with a little cosmetic damage to get the price down. Any tips on getting wife approval are appreciated (I've already tried getting her to buy a bike too, she's not interested). Cheers, Liam.
