Hey there guys, Been reading these forums over the last few days and learnt many bits of valuable advice, and thought it was time for me to become a part of the community. So the story goes, I got my learners permit with my best mate in December last year. Since that course, neither of us have rode anything. Forward a few months (to Tuesday the 21-6-11), and I receive an early 19th birthday surprise from my girlfriend and said mate. Said present was a green Kawasaki Ninja 250r (exactly the colour I wanted). Anyways, have rode the bike a few times, still only around the back streets around where I live, as I'm still not very confident with it. Think it's time for a bit more practice and a read of the tips section. Hopefully in the next week I will be doing a full service on the bike too, (oil and oil filter, air filter, coolant flush, brake fluid flush, spark plugs, brake pads). Anyways that's my short intro. I look forward to hopefully meeting some of you guys and girls, having a chat, and learning a lot from the forums and the whole motorbiking community in general. If anyone has any tips for me, or lives around the area and wants to meet up to have a chat, give me a yell (I'm in South Yarra).
