Hi all I'm Kevin and I only just read a posting requesting that new members post a hello. My first post was raving about my first bike. I put a deposit down yesterday. It's a Honda Spada. I even made some other postings as well. Originally, I was just a lurker, thinking that a bike, licence, etc was at least two months. I got into my pre-L within one week of booking because of a cancellation. I have also been roaming around a few bike shops and getting confused as hell. Well, I have my bike (being done up and made complaint to Aussie laws). Read the Bike Reviews/Thoughts to see my first post. After 3 months of frustrations (spending money on my girlfriends' needs instead of saving for myself). I finally decided that I must ignore her kids for a short time, be selfish and focus on my bike. I guess the research phrase was helpful for me. Her kids are shit (nah, they are really loving at most times.......) and I can't wait until the day I turn up to her place and say to the kids "You can't sit in my car and wreck it, like you have wreck your mum's car". I rarely let them sit in my car now. She told me several months ago that she will never let me ride a bike. So I haven't said anything to her. I hope that I don't talk in my sleep. Well, this is a hello. I live in Sydney, is there anything more I need to tell you about myself?
