  1. G'day,

    I'm reasonably new to two wheels, though thoroughly addicted. I've been reading Netrider for a while & found it to be an invaluable resource - so I thought it was about time I registered & contributed wherever I can.

    I started out on a Kawasaki VN250 (Eliminator) but have just upgraded to a Yamaha XVS650A. As you can probably guess, I'm more about the comfort than the speed, though I am loving having a few more horses at my disposal. I've undertaken an oath to the minister for finance that this is the last purchase (at least until I get through my restrictions).

    Well that's the formalities out of the way.

  2. welcome to Netrider :)
  3. Welcome to NR.

    As an ex-rider of XVS 650, I love the bike. Very cruisey and dependable.

  4. Welcome mate :D

    Start your campaign early for you next upgrade, though you need to be subtle about it :)
  5. Thanks all for the welcome.
    69sim - I hear you loud & clear. This upgrade is a stepping stone toward an eventual heavy cruiser, so I'm already pushing the 'romantic weekends away' line. Doesn't seem to be cutting a lot of mustard at the moment, though.
  6. I think you have to start with fun mornings or afternoons.
