Hello from Perth

  1. Hi my name is Craig and I am from Perth, I have had my licence for years but have never owned a bike before now. I picked up my 1st bike, a Hyosung GT250R ,on Friday and it is magic fun. Went for my first ride yesterday. Started out up and down the street and found it so easy to ride. I first had lessons back when I was a teenager and hadn't ridden in years and was a bit apprehensive at first. Then I went on a 30Km trip to folks and friends to show them all the bike and then rode home. Got up today and went for a short ride to the local shooping centre car park to practice my slow riding skills again but headed home soon after as rain was heading my way.

    I went for the Hyo because for my size (6') it best suited me, I found the other 250's too small and cramped my sitting position. It'll do me for a while until I get back up to full confidence then I will think about uprgading as I have always wanted a Duc. My wife is real keen on getting her licence now too.

    Cya on the road
