  1. Hello Guys, another newbie here.

    This seems like a some great forums, i was sent here by my mate ascension from the Aussiemagna forums.

    I did my Ls at HART in tullarmarine about a month and a half ago. I went with some friends from work, it was fun, good people. However i am the first of the bunch to actually get a bike.

    I looked around second hand, and i didnt really want a CBR250 as everyone and their dog seems to have one. Plus for any 250 with around 50,000 k's on it you were looking at around $5500, i just added another grand to that and went and bought myself a brand new Hyosung GT250R.

    Its a great bike and i was absolutely terrified when i first got it and had to ride it home, but i got on the road and accelerated into second gear and i was fine from then.

    Ive read people here saying that kids love motorbikes, well everyone at work loves my bike. They say its very big (for a 250), shiny and good value for money. The second day i had it i didn't ride to work and everyone was asking where it was.

    I live in altona north, and i dont know if its just me, but there seems to be alot of bikes around here. Now and then i see a couple of people on big bikes, like R1's and they are only wearing helmets, i feel that even with my helmet, jacket and gloves, if i fall off im in for a world of hurt.

    Enough rambling, i was just supposed to say Hi.
