  1. Morning all,

    Had this site recommended to me as the go-to for all my bike wants and needs, so here I am!

    I'm 36, from Brisbane, been riding since I was about 9 years old. I've owned a Blackbird, a Rocket III, a B-King, and now have an '09 Busa. Yup, I'm a sucker for the big crazy ones. I'll be looking for advice on how to make the Busa go harder, simply because due to long experience it doesn't frighten me in its current config.

    Anyhoo, nice to be here, keep them shiny side up!

  13. It's nothing hugely thrilling, but I love to head out over Clear Mountain to Dayboro, then over Mt Mee to D'Aguilar where there's a great pie shop. Then either a fast blast home on the highway, or turn around and do it all in reverse, depending on time. Mt Mee has gorgeous views and terrible roads haha. Takes a bit of skill to do it at any real pace, but the riders out there are usually friendly and courteous.

    I prefer that run instead of Nebo/Glorious - there tends to be more maniacs in cars around the latter, and lately a bit of diesel on the road fairly regularly for hoons to do burnouts/drifting. Not so much fun hitting a patch of that in a corner...
