Just like the topic I just saw in this section, I just got my provisional license and I'm 33 :? :? . Just to introduce myself, I'm 33 (as mentioned just before), Dutch by origin and moved to Sydney last year with my wife and two cats. We both got our Learner license last year, never ridden a motorcycle before. I now ride a 2000 Honda CB250 to work every day, except when it rains too hard. Ruby J., as she is called, performs her task very, very well. Why join this forum? I'm thinking of trading in my trusty Ruby J. for something else. I want a real cruiser, I only bought the CB250 to take the provisional course as it was the same bike we did our learners on as well and it rides very easy. So I'll be looking around here for tips on a "new" bike. Have my thoughts set to possibly a Yamaha XVS650 V-Custom but haven't got the funds to buy one yet. Maybe a nice Honda V25?? I'm a cruiser, not a racer. Looking forward to hearing from you all and maybe someday meet some of you as well.
