Hi all, I'm a learner from Melbourne, and found this great forum quite a while ago, I have been enjoying reading a number of posts here. I ride a 2000 yellow VTR250, which is my second bike after I crashed my first (GPX250) on New Years Day, this year. I came out of it with just a bruised ass.... The VTR is so much a better bike, better handling and nice power delivery. I commute to work up Stephensons Rd. every weekday and ride on weekends when I can, go to all the famous spots in Melbourne: Black Spur, Reefton Spur, Kinglake, Albert Park, Boulavard Drv., Mt. Dandenong. and I love to go on rides with my mates, which have GPX250's, R1's and ZX-7R's. I'm glad to have found this place, it seems very pleasent. I have just been on my first netrider ride, it was a very good experience, also a good way of meeting other people that enjoy what I have started to enjoy as well.
