  1. Hello fellow riders!
    Just introducing myself....... :roll:
    I have owned a black VTR 250 which i sold about 5 months ago and am in the process of buying a 1998 Honda Hornet 600 (in blue).
    I'm in Mt. Waverley (Melbourne), so when i get my bike in the next week or two, i'll catch up for a ride with you guys/ gals if you are friendly enough :wink: .
    Daz.

  8. Ha!
    Thanks for the warm welcome!
    BTW, does anyone know a transport company that can bring an UN crated bike from Sydney down to Melbourne for me?
    Any ideas on cost?
    Daz. :wink:

  9. In all seriousness it'd prolly be cheaper to fly up there and ride it back down :). That is unless you can get transport for under $200-$250.

  10. I don't really have appropriate riding gear for an 8 hour trip in the middle of WINTER! :shock:
    Rather pay for freight......

  11. I'll ride it down there for you!!!!! (or you could get one of the highly responsible Melbourne Netriders to do the same?!?!

  12. And way more fun :wink:
    You could drop in on Hornet600 / RC36 on the way back as well.

    Tell you what, gimme a one way ticket to Sydney from Hobart, and a one way ticket from Melb to Hobart, and I'll go get it for you. :twisted:

  16. PFFFT, Ya gotta buy it sometime :wink:

    Go to a bike store and ask for a set "on approval", send it back to them from Melb with a note saying "thanks a lot, but I've decided not to buy them after all, as I don't like the colour/finish/style (insert dodgey reason here)"

    Just pick a dodgy bike store who rips people off and nobody likes, then you'll be a hero as well :p

  17. I just did a quote online and jetstar can get you from melbourne to Sydney for $79 (including taxes) next saturday 23/7. I love these cheap flights.

    It's making me seriously think about flying down early before the GP @ PI and maye checking out these medal boots everyone is talking about. BTW has anyone organised a Friday Coffee 14/10 meet up on PI the weekend of the races???
