  1. Hey all,

    Just threw down the deposit on my brand new Ninja 650RL! It's currently sitting on the showroom floor, waiting to be delivered. This wait is going to be painful...cannot wait to take her out for that first ride. Planning to take her out for a ride up Mt Glorious, Mt Nebo and around Wivenhoe dam. Now to think of a name...

  3. Hey mate,

    Awesome choice of learner bike :)

    However, assuming you are a learner and this is your first bike, you should probably take it easy and stay away from the more serious rides until you get used to it. Places like Nebo are dangerous enough for experienced riders.

  4. Cheers guys.

    I do have a fair amount of experience riding, however it's all off-road. I'll take it easy for a few weeks whilst I begin adjusting to the bike and then I'll begin going on longer rides. Last thing I want it to be over confident and have a lowside on my first ride!

  5. Maybe get some sliders then, lessens the crying if it happens! Btw, waiting sucks big ones!
