Hi, I'm new !

  1. Hi all,

    I am new to the site. I think I got a flyer for this site / forum on my handlebars when parked in the city. Figured now that I need to actually get some help and advise I better sign up and join in and hopefully get some knowledge from the locals.

    I live near Melbourne and have been here for 6 years now after moving out from Scotland. I bought my first motorbike mainly for commuting. I move to an area that has no nearby train stops and is the last stop before the freeway so the bus is ALWAYS full when I get on meaning I need to stand the entire way in which doesnt help my back or knees or motivation to do work by the time I actually get there having stood the whole way :nopity:

    Anyway, I hope to spend some time here and hopefully get some help and advise as time goes on, and who knows, maybe I can help out other some day.

  2. Welcome!

    Netrider flyers, I should look into that.
  3. Welcome Peco. Nice choice on the bike - I had a GS500 and I think they're terrific commuter / learner bikes.

    If you're new to riding there's stuff on almost every weekend in Melbourne to help inexperienced riders build up their skills and confidence - check out the threads for the Saturday morning practice in particular.

    Looks like that extra 4L won't get you that much further than me!! :rofl:

    Now back to your normal programing :)
  14. true, but that is probably more a reflection on the rider rather than the bike ;)

    Actually, there should be a bigger difference in economy due to the final drive.
