Hi all I didnt start riding until my mid 30's. First ride was a 07 DRZ250. I mainly rode to and from work and used it in the bush on weekends. I then upgraded to a Gas Gas FSR515 and had the time of my life. A little over three years ago I relocated from Newman and I haven't ridden either bike often. I found this forum this morning while I was looking at road bike alternatives, something to travel approx 385k each way. I like the look of the ER6F but I am open to suggestions. Thanks for the great forum and I look forward to meeting many great people.
