Hi. A new rider from Canberra here

Discussion in 'Welcome Lounge' started by Stiffman, Nov 13, 2007.

  1. Hey everyone.
    My name is Matt. I've had a bike right on a week today.
    I'm riding a '98 CB250. Its a little bit rough around the edges, but all in all, it seems like a good bike to get started on.

  2. Welcome aboard Matt !

  3. Hiya Matt and welcome :)

    Congrats on getting your bike! CB250 is good for starting on.

    Hope to see you at coffee sometime!

  4. Welcome to the forum. :)

    I'm still chuffed at how many canberrans there are.. great stuff!
  5. welcome to the nuthouse, yes be sure to come to a coffee night in the future
  6. Stay clear of those Canberrans, esp ricecooker and qbnspdfreak, they tempt you into mad outings on bikes and all night singstar sessions. :LOL:

    Oh and welcome!
  7. Honda eh? You can park waaaaay down the end with Dunit.


    Regards, Andrew.
  8. karl i resemble that remark, you know your always up for a run when you can

    andrew, what are you talking about i'm always front and center :p :LOL:
  9. Yeah, gotta admit you Honda riders are a bit of a threat to Kawasaki domination now, quite a few of you, if you count those effeminate CBR 600's! :LOL:
    Imean, how could a company that came up with the VTR 1000, make teh CBR 600? It's like biploar!

    Regards, Andrew.
  10. hmm wondering in which way to ytake that? is it a compliment on the VTR or a put down? :LOL:
  11. OI!!!! I too resemble that remark! :LOL:

    But are you saying there's something wrong with mad outings on bikes and all night singstar sessions? :p Speaking of which... when's the next one!!

  12. Me need me sleep! These old bones and all that. U guys coming up soon?
  13. not on the bike :p will e up at the very end of the month for a coincert (not saying which one have copped enough crap about it) :p oh and th bike will be in the shop getting you know what done
  14. Not a putdown mate, I'd take a Storm over a CBR, man's bike! :LOL:

    Now, if they'd make one with a full fairing and panniers...oh, and double the tank size, I'd be interested!
    Emo lover! :rofl:

    Regards, Andrew.
