Hi all. I'm not a new rider, but I am new to this board. Have had many bikes over my 30 something years, starting with racing junior MX, then graduating to 125's, 250's then on to the roads. My first road bike was an RD250LC (fantastic bike, one of the best ever made IMHO), then a new XJ650 Turbo, then a GPZ750 Turbo (must have been a phase I went through with the turbo thing!!). Many bikes onward and I now have a brand new V Star 650 Classic in Red/Silver that I collected on the weekend. It's still a bit tight at the moment, but I'm looking forward to putting some km's under the belt and loosening her up for a big ride. I never thought I would go for a cruiser, but after riding a friends VR800, I was hooked for life on the V twin phenomenon. Anyway, look forward to reading and posting and hopefully catching up with some of you next time I'm in Melbourne, as it seems that's where the majority of people on the forum live!! I'm ex Elsternwick, but have since moved to Adelaide.
