Hi All, from Gippsland Vic

Discussion in 'Welcome Lounge' started by DirtTurtle, Jun 4, 2016.

  1. Hi Guys,

    I've been a skimmer of the forums for quite a while but thought I'd say a quick hello. Originally I purchased a bandit 250 about 3 years ago to get my full license and sell it off so that I won't have to wait in many years to come to purchase a bike I wanted.

    Well I sold my 250 in Feb and within a few months of separation anxiety I've now been the owner of a GSXR 750 for a few weeks.

    Oh my I think I may have contracted some kind of motorbike bug/disease or something, I'm sure you guys would agree.

    Pleasant greetings and safe riding.

  4. Welcome DT,
    So where are you based ?
    There's quite a few NR's spread out over Gippland, and some of us city folk make regular visits.
    Enjoy the new bike.

  9. Welcome to NR from Adelaide. Enjoy your new ride.
  10. gday DirtTurtleDirtTurtle welcome to NR - there is no cure for the motorcycle disease, frequent riding will give you some satisfaction, spending too much time on NR will make you spend more money on bikes, accessories and gear - you've been warned!
  11. Welcome. Enjoy
  12. Howdy and welcome to NR DirtTurtleDirtTurtle. With your backyard, I wonder if motorcycling has been in your genes already, you just woke up and saw the light so to speak :happy:

    Agree with chilliman64chilliman64, riding is highly addictive, there's no cure, but there's nothing that comes close to a feeling of satisfaction and "hell yeah!" that riding can give you. You started seeing the world in colour (y).

    Gippsland is absolutely magical, been there only once, will come again soon. Shame it's not a day trip for me. One simply cannot have enough of that place. Hope to see photos of your adventures :snaphappy:

  14. Slightly off topic, but looking at our replies, one doesn't need a gender identifier. Look at guys' one-liners, sweet and straight to the point...(y)

    And then look at mine...... So many words to say "welcome, good on you, mate" :hilarious: XX chromosomes speak for themselves.

    BTW, chilliman64chilliman64 just to let you know, I'm not implying anything :whistle:
