Just moved to Brisbane

  1. G'day all,

    Matt here, 26, just recently moved to Brisbane from Sydney. Currently ride a Honda CBR250R which will last me until I can get my full licence, just on my red Ps at the moment which I'll be on for a year as I'm over 25 so I can move to open licence then.



    Looking for a group around Brisbane that goes on regular rides and is happy to accept new members.

    Cheers. :)

  2. Welcome!

    There is a group of riders here that have regular rides, every Saturday morning for a start, although currently on Chrissy break.

    A CBR250R would be welcome.

    There are also irregular other rides in the Brisbane region. Watch the rides forum for details.

    Hope to see you there soon.

  5. Thanks all, it's appreciated. I'll keep an eye out for some rides. I gotta try to get to know the area. :)

  6. If you feel like making a trip up to the Sunshine Coast (an hour North of Brisbane), I'd be happy to show you around the Glasshouse Mountains/Maleny area.

  7. That'd be awesome, not for a couple of weeks but I'd be keen for sure.

  10. Man, you're in the right area for some fantastic rides! - From Kedron you can ride out to The Gap and then go up Mt. Nebo, or you could ride to Samford Village and then to Mt. Mee, or you could ride to Mt. Glorious and then follow the Esk-Kilcoy Rd around lake Somerset, or...well, the possibilities are endless. Suffice it to say that you're in a spot that makes some excellent rides very accessible!

    You can get a good GPS from JB HiFi for around $100. Buy one.

    Anyway, this is your playground:

  14. Hi and welcome to Brisvegas.

    There are a few groups around ... google away as I am not too familiar with the inner wrokings of any as I am a bit of a loner.

    BTW on a Qld license you will have to be retested for an 'R' bike license if you want to upgrade ... or keep your NSW license and then swap it over after it goes open. Just a hint :)

  15. Welcome to Netrider. :) I ride around the Gold Coast hinterland a fair bit if ya ever find yourself down this way and want a riding buddy or two.

  16. Appreciate the feedback everybody.

    I have my phone which I can use as a GPS but it might be safer to get a cheap one just for the bike.

    I haven't even thought about the licence side of things yet.. I should probably look into that ha ha. Cheers.
