  1. Hey all,



    I am brand new to motorbikes and my first bike is a 2006 Honda Vtr250!! Bought it in Adelaide and rode back to Tasmania where i live... it was the craziest thing i have ever done in my life :) Not all smooth sailing though i was hit by a car 10 minutes after purchasing my motorbike :( in Adelaide and had $2,400 damage to the bike which was annoying!!

    But all good now and i am enjoying my bike i love it :)

  5. An unfortunate start Sammy but good to hear it hasn't dented your enthusiasm. You definitely have hootspa to contemplate a three state ride as a beginner but that trip probably taught you a lot. :)

    Welcome.
