Melbourne - New rider (almost)

Discussion in 'Welcome Lounge' started by Bain, Apr 28, 2012.

  1. Hi All,

    Figured id introduce myself. Everyone calls me Bain, im 33 years old and live in Melbourne (South East).

    Ive recently changed jobs and figured now was as good a time as any to get my motorbike license. Ive always been fond of the old school 50's Harley bobbers so after a bit of research I came across a site www.bluecollarbobbers.com that did bobber kits for all types of bikes.

    After looking around on the net for quite some time, I came across the below bike.

    Its a 2008 Yamaha V-Star XVS650 Custom with 15k km's on the clock. It has a few mods as well - lowered, Vans & Hines pipes, Kuryakyn Hypercharger, K-Drive Click mount saddlebags.



    I went out today to have a look at the bike and fell in love with it. Suffice to say, a deposit was put down and ill be picking it up next week (sunday).

    Now to get my license! (booked for tuesday) and buy some riding gear!

  2. Mate that's one hot looking bike! Congrats
  3. A very nice lookin bike. Best of luck on Tuesday.
