  1. Hi All,

    I just upgraded my RE(A) to R (open) last Monday.

    I upgraded from a Vespa GTV 250ie to a Moto Guzzi V7R in June so I could keep up with my partner and go for proper rides (he had a Buell sportsbike but was jealous of my Moto Guzzi so bought a new California 1400 Custom).

    I got my RE licence in 2008 so have a few years experience commuting back and forth to work on the Vespa, so lots of city traffic, but next to no experience above 80km/h (or with gears!).

    We have been doing tons of longer rides on the weekends (in fact we rarely do anything else and the house is falling down around us!) to Canungra, up Mt Tamborine, out to Springbrook etc. so I'm slowly getting better at going fast and doing twisty stuff.

    Anyway, I'm loving it and looking forward to reading the posts here...
  2. welcome aboard :]
