Hi all

Discussion in 'Welcome Lounge' started by mattensky, Dec 13, 2013.

  1. Hi there. .. So I just bought myself a Honda cb500f... red. It's my first non-scooter, so just taking it easy at the moment on quiet streets - trying to get the hang of gears.

    Am loving it so far :)

    Anyway - just wanted to day hi - I look forward to learning a lot from you guys.
  2. Hello and welcome :) I've seen some positive reviews of those new Honda 500s, should be a good machine to learn on.
  3. Welcome along
    Perhaps you could update with where you are located
  4. Hi again... sorry - I'm in Wights Mountain (next to Samford Valley) ... have mainly bought it as a commuter to Ferny Grove... but am hoping to enjoy some rides in the area... there sure are a lot of bikes around on the weekend :)
  5. Welcome to NR !
  6. Hey another Qlder, certainly are some good roads up there Samford way, and the cbr 500 looks like a great bit of gear.
    Think smooth, roll-on, roll-off, and only use enough clutch to unload the gears.
    There is heaps of great hints and tips on here too.
