Hey netrider, Sydney east.

  1. Hey all,
    My name is Martin, I'm from eastern suburbs Sydney.
    Been riding off road bikes for a few years and now decided to give the road bikes a go.
    I bought a cbr500r which I'm picking up tommorow morning so pretty excited, should be a fun learner bike. Saw it today and it looks better than I thought in person.
    Anyway looking forward to some netrider meets/rides once I get a few hours riding under my belt lol.
    Cheers all,
    Pics of my toys for anyone interested
    KTM 250exc 6 days

    Had a decent ride of the cbr500 over the weekend, nice bike. I'm very happy with it in all areas and it will be more than enough bike for me for the time being.

  14. This weekend, up to the mountains. There's riders coming from the CBD, Gosford and Mt Druitt (and me coming from Scotland Island). Hit me up on PM towards the end of the week and we'll get the details sorted.
  15. Yeah loving the red, the white tri color was my first choice but none in oz till June, way too impatient for that plus the reds grown on me.
    Will do,
    Cheers bud!!!!
