Hello, been posting for a week or so beofre posting my hello - oops Have been riding bikes for a long time, in the bush and occaisionally on road trail. Havent had one for few years due to wives, kids and mortgages. I still have all of those but seems that persistantly nagging for the past few years has paid off, the wife has approved around 6k for bike + safety gear. Got my learners last week, am all cashed up and ready to make my first road bike purchase, looking around for a nice CB250F Hornet in Melb. I wont be riding to work too much (i wear a suit to work), so just a social ride, bit of fun or a squirt around the penninsula on the weekends. Due to recent spinal snap of our neighbor i am petrified of a spinal injury and am currently researchoing the best that money can buy in back protection.
