Hello from Sydney

  1. Greetings fellow riders :)
    I'm Pete, both my wife and I ride. We got our licences at age 30.
    We've been riding for 13 years which makes me around 21:p
    Between us we've had a Yamaha Zeal, VTR Firestorm, CBR600, R6 an SV650S and SV1000. I'm a big fan of V twins, although the jap 4s were brilliant as well.
    We've done plenty of touring around NSW and also a trip across Australia to Perth
    I'm also a car nut and I have to basically modify everything I own.
    Spent most of last year without a bike due to work commitments, but was looking on and off. Finally a week before Christmas my wife says to me " grab your bike gear we're going for a drive"
    Ended up test riding a few bikes and bought a Ducati 749. Its red and has Termi pipes.

    I just ordered a rear seat cowl ( see, can't help myself).

    There's probably more comfortable bikes out there, but I've always wanted one. Its an awsome experience.

    Happy riding :riding:

    Does the modifying of everything you own extend to your wife?
