  1. Hi all,

    Been lurking here since late 2014, not long after I got my P plates and had the first inklings of wanting to get a motorcycle. Between not having a job and parental concerns (mostly mum, dad's been riding since the stone age, including being a motorcycle copper with the Queensland Police many years ago and wanted me to get my licence) I've been stuck with 4 wheels instead of 2 (although I do enjoy my cars too). Anyway, mum finally caved late last year and I got my Ls, and on January 14th I officially got my RE licence (did the 2-day course with HART at Slacks Creek, learned a LOT about just how little I knew about riding a motorcycle, more practice and learning is definitely on the cards too). Got myself some gear already, currently saving my pennies for a bike to call my own (looking at getting a BMW F650CS, it looks to be exactly what I want out of a bike). Will definitely be keen to get out and on the bike once I've got one, hope to see some of you around :LOL:
