  1. Hi Just thought i should introduce myself.
    My name is Alex im 24 and live in melbourne
    Been riding since i was about 12 learnt to ride on a postie bike in my backyard and park next door.
    Had a few postie bikes a Honda XR400R and a Kwaka KLR250
    Used to really love bikes and got my license when i was 17 and rode the XR around on the street.
    Sort of got obssesed with cars after i got my car license and only got my first road bike a year ago.

    Looking forward to going on some bike cruises and meeting some of you guys as the weather is fantastic.

    Bought my bike stock standard last jan and have done the following since

    Akrapovic Carbon Fibre Slip On
    Michelin Pilot Powers
    OGGY KNOBS Frame Sliders
    HH Brake Pads
    DynoJet Stg1 Jet kit (103hp)
    BMC Race Filter
    Renthal Front + Rear Sprocket (520)
    RK Chain
    Custom Made Fender Eliminator
    Small crystal Indicators Front + Rear
    Red Rim Stripes
    Yellow Headlight Film
    Various Stickers removed
    Gearbox freshly rebuilt by Dean at Dynaverx (2nd gear popout problem)

    5 months ago with just an Akrapovic slip on it made 96.7 HP at the wheels.
    After these mods it now makes 103HP at the wheels.
