... and after about 30 years of riding mostly on dirt, I've just got my P's (I've had my L's 3 times...). Thankfully though, the RTA considers me a "mature" rider (fools!), so I'll be upgrading my license and ride in October 2011. For now though, I commute to Parramatta on my trusty '89 Spada, which I love to pieces (sometimes literally, as in this morning; but that's a story for another topic). I also own a '82 XZ550 "Vision", which is currently scattered around my shed waiting for inspiration to come to me. Inspiration, and money. The thing I love most about riding is what I like to call "The Brotherhood" - this automatically includes all the riding "sisters", of course: I nod at EVERYTHING except Harleys and Step-throughs (yep, that includes posties AND coppers), and I would NEVER ride past a biker who was pulled over, looking under their tank at something puzzling. Which is why I joined NR (paid a few weeks back and waiting for Mouth to appear, apparently...) - you f**kers are alright!
