Hi from Brisbane

Discussion in 'Welcome Lounge' started by mendosi, Jan 6, 2012.

  1. I've been posting on NR for a little while, but never introduced myself. (At the time that I joined I was looking for specific parking info for Brisbane CBD fringe.)

    I'm a local of Brisbane, been riding for 5 years, initially on scooters but now I upgraded to a CBR-125R since my commute involves motorways.

    Thinking of getting a full licence this year because although I love my bike I'm currently very restricted with rental bikes (which I might want for an out-of-town trip).

    Copped a bit of abuse this morning from a car driver because I had the temerity to be in the right-hand lane while ... overtaking a truck ... and apparrently I wasn't going enough over the speed limit for this fella. My wish that there would be a speed trap just around the corner was not fulfilled.
  2. Hi again. ;)

    What colour's the 125? I'm gonna keep an eye out seeing as you're nearby. Will probably look like an idiot waving to every bloody one I come across but that's nothing new for me. :p Was looking at the same bike myself but ended up with a YZF-R15.

    I'm sure you're already aware but be careful splitting on Centenary in peak hour; too many times had masses of bikes fly past me in my cage only to crawl past them allll pulled over ten minutes later around a bend (have you ever been one of these unfortunate?).
  3. This colour:

    Red White & Blue 2009 CBR 125R

    Yes, I have been - I was caught in the last batch before school holidays made all the traffic go away. $140
  4. Hi there mendosi - not sure if I greeted you before, but just in case - Hello and welcome.

    There are untold millions of netriders in Syd & Melb, so a few more in Brisvegas has to be a good thing.
