I'm a new member to NR though I have surfed across the forum a few times over the years. I live in Strathfieldsaye which is an outlying suburb of Bendigo. My current bikes are a '07 CBR600RR and an '88 TT250. I work in Castlemaine so anyone who knows the back way from Bendigo along Harcourt North Rd will understand why I ride to work whenever I can. The TT is stored up near Mildura, we only use it for a bit of bush bashing along the river. I grew up on a farm so I started riding bikes when I was 6 years old, the first one was an '85 RM50, followed by a series of Ag bikes and four wheelers. My first road bike was a '97 GPX250 which I rode for seven and a half years from the start of Year 12 'till after I'd finished Uni. My next bike was an '04 CBR600RR which I rode for a little over two years before it was written off by a retarded cager. I've had my current CBR for just over 4 years now and I've just clocked up 30,000 km. I also like riding bicycles but I've not done a lot of cycling since my daughter was born 13 months ago.
