Hi from a new member

  1. gday all, figured i'd introduce myself.
    been a petrolhead for a while but dno't feel like taking my pride and joy into the city everyday, so a bike seemed like the best option for freedom and a bit of fun.
    booked to get my L's in a fortnight, and then i'm leaning towards a handbag (across) as my first bike.
    i've got a v8 commie in the shed, so not after anything mental, but a bit of poke wouldn't go astray.

    i seen a bunch of threads about the across already, so i know to expect possible dropped sliders, and a lack of tank capacity. anything else to be onl the lookout for?
  2. Welcome pow3r. Sorry can't help you on the Across I don't know the model well.
  3. welcome to NR, any bike's a good bike, just enjoy the ride!!
  4. Very true!
