Hi all

  1. Hi guys,

    Name is Mikey, just got my learners in January and bought myself a bike as a 21st birthday present to myself in March. Already put close to 3000kms on the clock! I use it mostly for commuting to and from work but I find myself taking a lot more trips out of Sydney every week than I used to!

    Bike is a 2007 Hyosung GT250R. Bought it from Close Motorcycles in Redfern. Paid a little bit over market value ~$300 but I felt a lot more comfortable buying from a reputable shop for my first bike so I can start with a reliable platform to learn the basics of maintenance and tinkering.

    I'm looking to buy a Ducati Monster 659 in the next few months. Something a bit bigger so I don't feel like I'm raping my throttle all the time just to get anywhere. Also I figure it's worth the coin as I'll be stuck on it for the best part of 3 years!
