  1. Hi All

    I've been browsing for a few weeks and must say its a great site!

    Cougs is a nickname - or Cougar (but that was taken) and no, I am not a 'cougar' in the usual sense of the word. Feel free to use either that or Pete.

    A 39yo family man who has just returned to riding after 15 years off the bike (laziness really... :-s ) is me. By day I'm in management in the construction field (an electrician by trade) and I also have a keen interest in footy (Carlton but mostly local) and am a CFA vol.

    Hailing from the SE suburbs of Melb I'm currently on a Hyo GV250 (had it a couple months) but there is a Harley purchase coming in 12 months or so (yeah, I know - a 40yo buying a Harley, who would have thought...? but thats me). Have had a couple other bikes in the past (getting distant now) - an IT490 and an SRX250 road bike.

    Looking forward to learning a heap, having a laugh and contributing where I can.

  2. Welcome Cougs, hope to see you out on one of the group rides.

  5. Hi Cougs and welcome to NR.

    First a Hyo and then a Harley. Talk about a slippery slope, Still looking on the bright side your mechanical skills should improve. :LOL:
