  1. Hi all,

    I obtained my learner's permit this year, very excited to have passed and I loved the HART course. I'm the last one in my family eligible to get a bike licence to get one so took some time. ;-) I'm currently on the hunt for my first bike, I'm a shorty so it's a challenge. Loving the VTR 250 and with a lowering kit, the CBR250R was nice to sit on too. Will keep my eye on the classifieds, hope to get something soon!

    I'm currently residing in Melbourne, 4km out of the CBD. Prominent motorcycle culture down here. :)

  9. Hahaa, I saw what was going on with other posts and chose not to mention that. I'm more of a stand at the back of the crowd type. ;-)
