  1. Greetings all

    I'm Ben and I'm not very good at introductions.

    I impulse bought a FZR 250 in my younger years and rode for about 6 months before stacking it and moving on. Moved to the UK for 6 years and decided it was too sodden to be bothered. Then I went traveling and impulse-bought another bike, this time in India (Enfield Thunderbird). Rode that baby around the country for 9 months before returning home to Aus. Been driving a WRX for the last few years which has quenched my thirst for a fun machine until about a month ago when I finally got around to doing the Q-Ride for my R license.

    Bought a bike a couple of days ago - a Kwaka Er6-nl (the lams one since I want to take a pillion and can't legally do it on an R class bike). So far just doing the commute but also looking forward to some group rides and general bombing around the sunny coast on it.

    So, Hi!

  11. Cheers. Yeah up through the Spiti area to Manali then right up to Leh and surrounds, then back down through Kashmir. Even wrangled permission to travel through the military zones right up at the LOC after landslides took out the main road. Amazing experience!
