Hi from Gippsland Vic

Discussion in 'Welcome Lounge' started by vtwincruiza, Apr 5, 2011.

  1. Just thought I would introduce myself. My names Grant, Im from Gippsland in Vic. Have just gotten my Learners last night and bought myself a '95 VT250c. Rode it home from work tonight and so far Im loving it. It will be a daily commuter for me for work so comfort was important when I was looking for a bike and found this one and thought to myself that it was the one. Thanks for looking and I hope to perhaps one day come on a ride with one of the cruise groups in the not too distant future.

  2. Hi Grant, Welcome to NR and bikes. A few riders on the forums are down your way. Lots of good roads to explore in Gippsland. :)
