  1. Hello everybody, I´m from Colombia and came to Melbourne to improve my english and a lot more...javascript:emoticon(':grin:')
    In Colombia my last bike was a DL650 of 2008..javascript:emoticon(':)')
    I love ride the bikes and feel all the freedom that only can give it to you.
    Maybe in a few days I need a bike, for a job that start in october. But also I want to travel around the "country" (is impossible to know everywhere, but I refer to know the most number of places where I can go with mi bike)
    You should understand that are very different the options to have a bike in Colombia and in Australia, maybe here the number of good motorcycles are bigger therefore I know just a little about
    Before to come to Australia I was thinking in a KLR650 because is for double propose (road and off road) but, nowadays I don´t know if is a good choice; maybe you can help me to decide.
    My budget is around $6000
    I like more the tourism than sport or chopper.

    Really thank you, in this moment I don´t have an excellent level of english, but I´m trying and just have to say...wold be great one day have a motorcycle here and get around the city and this amazing country, and learning with you all the Australian secrets hide it back the two wheels..

    Gracias por su colaboracion!!

If the spanish is not yours, you can watch some criminal pictures... I went just with my girl and was an amazing ride for 9 days...

    The structure of both forums is the same... ENJOY IT
