Hi all

Discussion in 'New Riders and Riding Tips' started by ac, Jan 20, 2006.

  1. I've been reading the netrider forum for a while now and am getting back into riding after about 25 years away.
    After getting the L's in March last year I bought a Bandit in June, got my licence in September and am looking forward to a bigger bike later this year. Most of the riding I have done is commuting (mainly on freeways) but I ride a bit locally and take the occasional opportunity to head out around yarra glen etc for a few hours. It's as much fun as I remember.
    Thanks to all those who offer advice and opinions. I think they reach more people than you might realise.


  2. AC meet JB :LOL: he he welcome mate! i just joined up on the forums today myself :grin: happy days mate and remember live to ride and stay upright :biker:
  3. Welcome AC

    What made U get back in2 the swing of things after 1/4 of a century?
  4. Hi and Welcome.

    What part of Melbourne you from?
  5. I'm in Boroondara and the idea to get back on a bike again took hold gradually and probably related to the feeling that there must be a better (more efficient and more fun) way to get around. I was spending more time stuck in the traffic and in a car there's nothing you can do about it.
    Of course once you've got a bike you can't just ignore it on weekends
  6. Welcome fellow old bugger.
