  1. G'day all.
    My name is Winston, how are you all?

    I like to ride motorcycles.
    I started riding in April last year and have enjoyed ever moment of it. I currently ride a honda ct-110 (aka postie). This is my second one. My first one was stolen. His name was edward. This one was an old unregistered scrap bike that i repaired into working condition. His name is edward II.

    For those of you thinking it's not a real bike....:-({|=
    I ride this beast in all conditions. My brother and I and more often than not, our friend love to go on rides. My biggest one was a 3 day return trip from melbourne to Mt Kosciuszko in feb this year. I went clockwise from melbourne to Mt kosciuszko and back through the south.

    I love riding and hope to join in on the weekly melbourne rides.
    There looks to be a great community here and i look forward to joining it.

    edit: thought i'd attach a few photos!

  12. Charlotte Pass! Great effort and nice pics too, did you alter the sprockets or does it scream everywhere at 80km/h?

  14. It's a MIKE crate!
