  1. Hi my names Damo, I'm 39 and have only been riding for just under a year.
    Most of my life I have never really been interested in motorbikes then for the last 2 years there has been like a calling inside to get my bike license, so last year booked my lessons and went of it.
    Best thing I have done, although I didn't pass my test the first go but that was due to my nerves.
    So for my first bike I bought a 2004 Suzuki GS500F, intimidating at first compared to the CB125 I learnt on, I soon clocked up 7000km's in the first month and have done 27000kms in 10months.
    Being a bike rider I soon thought the GS500 was a bit slow so I bought a slip-on, K&N air filter and jetted it out, it was good for a while but wanted more acceleration so I put 14tooth sprocket on the front which helped for acceleration but not good for hwy.
    Anyway soon be able to go for my open class :)
