Hi All from the Blue Mountains

Discussion in 'Welcome Lounge' at netrider.net.au started by Matrix, Jun 6, 2007.

  1. Just thought I would drop in and say G'day. I'm Matt and I am in love with my recently purchased CBR1000RR I have been riding bush for most of my life until my XR650 was stolen not long ago. I decided to get a road bike to make my trip in and out of work more enjoyable.

    I have only been in NSW for a short time having moved here from VIC so anyone in the area who wants to go riding drop me a line.

  3. Hi Matt

    Welcome to forum

    Very nice bike you have there

    Out of interest, how many KM do u do to drive to work, I was wondering what a CBR1000RR is like for daily commuting

  4. Hey Shakows

    I ride 80kms each way to and from work travelling from the mountains to Sydney. The worst part about the trip is trying to keep at the speed limit as the Fireblade just wants to go faster and faster.
    The bike is very comfortable to ride and I get about 250kms on a tank of fuel. I am really happy with it

  7. Hi Matt,

    Welcome to both Netrider and the Mountains! I commute each day from Hazelbrook to Katoomba, not so far I know, but bloody cold at this time of year. :shock:

    Whereabouts in the mountains are you? Hope you can make it to coffee one Saturday.

    Cheers
