Jumping on the newbie Bandwagon

  1. Hi all, I've Lurking for a couple months and thought it was about time I set my post count to 1. I am coming back to motor bikes after a twenty year break. I rode mostly Yamaha two strokes in the 80's. I gave it up when I sold my LC 350 to come to Australia. I always intended to buy a motor bike in Australia but life got in the way. I clicked over 40 last year and my "mid life crisis" has told me "it was time" so I got my Ls and bought a Suzuki Across to ease my self back into the groove. I thought by now I would have matured and ride sensibly but once I throw my leg over a bike my brain shrinks and I find my self doing the same stupid things I used to do when I was younger. I am trying really hard to be mature (honestly!).

    Thanks in advance for any welcome messages but really there is no need to say "Hi". Thanks to the forum I already feel Like I know you all you all in a strange Voyeur/Stalker kind of way.

  3. So who's stalking whom??

    Welcome anyway :).
