Hi All

Discussion in 'Welcome Lounge' started by oz_mick, Aug 31, 2008.

  1. Just joined and wanted to say hi.

    A bit about me I started riding bikes when I was a teenager in the um 70's. Finally got my full licence in the 80's. Rode in Australia, Malaysia and Thailand. Then got married and thats when the riding stopped.

    So after a 22 year absence and an ex-wife I have got back into riding in a big way. This year I bought a Yamaha XT250 trail bike and a mint 1986 Yamaha Virago XV 750 (my new love). Next year an adventure bike or a touring bike LOL maybe both.

    I really want to get into the group rides so when my schedule with my four kids allows I hope to meet you all on one of the rides. I am fairly quiet to start but once I get to know you I get a bit noisier.

    If you see a two tone blue virago with rider all in black puttering arround the streets of Dipswich QLD then toot n wave coz thats me.

    Anyway I have waffled enough, so Hi to all
